49ers’ 90-man ranking: players #71-80

49ers’ 90-man ranking: players #71-80

We begin the countdown of our 49ers’ roster ranking today, looking at players ranked 71-80. This is mostly practice squad candidates and camp fodder, but a couple could surprise us. The San Francisco 49ers report for training camp on July 25, and with time ticking down, we’re back for our annual roster ranking feature. The past two years, we’ve put together a consensus ranking of the 49ers 90-man roster. It includes ranking from myself and other Niners Nation staff. The San Francisco 49ers return to training camp in nine days, and that means it is time for what will hopefully...

90-in-90: OL Erik Magnuson

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is versatile lineman Erik Magnuson.

He played in four games, including one at right tackle due to injuries, and did fine. Not great, but not Beadles-bad either.

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Wednesday that they’ll wear their new white throwback uniform Week 7 when they host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. The 49ers introduced the new uniforms earlier this offseason to replace the black alternates they used the past three seasons. It is fitting the 49ers will wear the uniforms against the Rams. While teams like the Seahawks, Cowboys, and Packers have offered more intense rivalries over the years, the Rams represent their “longest” rival. The two sides have squared off 136 times over the years. The next closest are the...

One reason the 49ers will beat the Broncos (and one reason they won’t)

One reason the 49ers will beat the Broncos (and one reason they won’t)

It’s time for us to look at each matchup and give one reason why the San Francisco 49ers can succeed at each of their opponents and one reason why they cannot. It’s four days until 49ers training camp-week begins! We want to look at each opponent and provide a reason for and against the San Francisco 49ers beating them. We’ve included a poll for the community to vote on whether they expect a win or a loss. We’ll see what kind of prediction this provides at the end.
