10. San Francisco 49ers

The Niners may have to morph into a more offensively driven team in 2014 as the defense copes with the loss of NaVorro Bowman for half the year and the looming suspension of Aldon Smith. Colin Kaepernick just got a new weapon in Stevie Johnson, giving the team a very dangerous three-deep receiving corps. The ageless Frank Gore is poised to be the starter, but arguably the draft’s top back Carlos Hyde landed in San Fran and could see extended playing time behind the veteran.
