Early Predictions for Next NFL Season

5 of 37

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers won’t be catching anybody by surprise next year and that’s fine.

They’re good enough to beat you whether you respect them or not. That front seven — all of whom appear to be under contract next season — is without a doubt the best group in the league. Alex Smith and Carlos Rogers need to be re-signed (or not re-signed), and playmakers at receiver need to be added.

But the Niners are real contenders in 2012. —Peter Schrager (AP Photo/Ben Margot)
