2012 was a banner year for the San Francisco 49ers. After starting quarterback Alex Smith went down with an injury, 2011 second-round pick Colin Kaepernick took over as starter and never looked back, putting up a star-caliber season and nearly leading the Niners to a super bowl victory. After their close loss to the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII, San Francisco went right to work revamping their roster in pursuit of another run at the grandest of all prizes. Perhaps the two biggest moves both were related to the Kansas City Chiefs, as they traded former starting QB Alex Smith for a second-round pick and signed former third pick overall Glenn Dorsey. the Niners also made waves by trading a sixth-round pick to their Super Bowl opponents, the Ravens, for receiver Anquan Boldin in a move that many speculated would give them an elite receiving corps for their young and promising quarterback.
As it turned out, the Boldin acquisition may have been necessary to keep the receiving corps from being below average. The unit that looked like a strength earlier in the offseason now looks weaker than it was a year ago. Star receiver Michael Crabtree went down with a season-ending injury in the offseason. 2012 first-round pick A.J. Jenkins missed all of 2012 and was so unimpressive in the 2013 preseason that he was eventually traded to Kansas City for fellow disappointment Jon Baldwin. 2013 fourth-round selection Quinton Patton has been stymied by injuries all preseason.
The 49ers look to have a top defense, and their running game should be strong between the effective running of Frank Gore and one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. Still, if the 49ers want to return to the Super bowl, the pressure falls on the talented legs and arm of Colin Kaepernick. The bold moves made by the division-rival Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams suggest the Niners can't afford to stagnate. Kaepernick needs to carry them to the next level.
