    Jimmie Ward had practically nothing to prove when the San Francisco 49ers drafted him in the first round of the 2014 draft.The Niners’ previous starting slot cornerback, Carlos Rogers, had signed with the Oakland Raiders during free agency, and the Niners didn’t have a replacement for him. So when the Niners took Ward in Round 1, it was clear he was Rogers’ replacement. Ward had no competition.“We believe (Ward) will compete as a nickel for us as well, which is a very important position,” said head coach Jim Harbaugh shortly after Ward was drafted, according to Taylor Price of 49er…

  • Five questions the San Francisco 49ers face entering camp
    Training Camp for the San Francisco 49ers began August 1,2015 in Santa Clara, California. This past off-season the 49ers went through many changes. The team lost key contributors on both sides of the ball. New head coach Jim Tomsula faces many questions as he leads his first training camp, and will be under a lot of pressure to succeed quickly. The 49ers were one of the few teams in the league with depth, so Tomsula will not get the same leeway that other rookie head coaches receive. Here are five questions that must be answered before a week one showdown against the Minnesota Vikings: Aldon…

That list was comprised of one future Hall of Fame player well past his prime and others who have seemingly put up good seasons throughout their career. It wasn’t a knock on the players included. Rather, it just goes to show us how certain players are overvalued in today’s NFL.Now looking at the five-most underrated players in the NFL, there is an alarming consistency here.

The lone player expected to be penciled into a starting role is Joe Staley. Alex Boone has been the starter at right guard the last three seasons, but could see a position switch. Marcus Martin figures to see time somewhere, whether that be at center or guard. He was thrust into a bigger role during his rookie season after starting center Daniel Kilgore was lost midway through the season (leg). But the…

  • What should the San Francisco 49ers expect from Ahmad Brooks this year?
    One of the things that irked me a little bit at the beginning of San Francisco 49ers training camp last season was the fact that veteran outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks showed up out of shape. Coming off arguably the most productive season of his career in 2013 with sixty tackles eight and a half sacks and a pick, he finished last season with only thirty tackles and six sacks.Between his attitude, his arrival to camp out of shape, and the emergence of Aaron Lynch, his playtime was reduced. In 2014 Brooks played 57.6% of all defensive snaps. In 2013 he played 90.7% of snaps, so you can see he…
