The 2010 season brought with it a succession of disappointing events. Fortunately for the 49ers, they landed their number one choice to fill the head coaching vacancy when they hired Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh has undoubtedly began evaluating the talent he has on the roster going into next year, so I thought it would be an excellent time to compose this list. This is a list ranking the 22 starters from the 2010 season, going into the 2011 season.
This list is not designed to investigate who is staying and who is going, or should be in the starting lineup next season. It is also not an evaluation of their performance in 2010, but rather a look at where they stack up heading into next season.
I would also like to add that if multiple players started at a given position --due to injury or otherwise-- the player who received the majority of starts will appear on this list.
While this list would likely lead up to the team's MVP, I thought it would be fitting to work our way down, as the 49ers finished the season 6-10.
