Earlier this week I covered six San Francisco 49ers that are primed to break out this season. The article received a nice, albeit skeptical response.
Today I am going to take on the other end of the spectrum, allowing my skepticism toward a select six 49er players to come to the forefront.
Every team in the NFL has at least one player that continuously underperforms. Expectations run rabid in regards to them progressing and taking the next level. But it doesn't ever seem to happen.
Considering that the San Francisco 49ers have been stuck in mediocrity for almost a decade, they have had their fair share of these characters on their team.
From Jim Druckenmiller and Rashaun Woods, to Kentwan Balmer and Alex Smith; these players continue to frustrate coaches and fans alike.
These player also set franchises back years because they end up becoming busts and a waste of a high draft pick.
The 49ers have a number of players that have failed to live up to previous performances that set the proverbial bar high for them.
These players include rookies, draft picks and veteran additions.
Today, I am going to take a look at six San Francisco 49ers players primed to disappoint this season.
