A new era begins in San Francisco. the era of Trey Lance.
The second-year quarterback and third overall selection in the 2021 Draft is the new starting quarterback for the 49ers, who to date have not been able to “get rid” of Jimmy Garoppolowho took them to the Super Bowl three years ago.
Lance didn’t show anything spectacular in the preseason, going 11-for-16 for 141 passing yards and a touchdown. In addition, he was sacked twice and rushed once for eight yards.
The offensive line also didn’t look good without the All-Pro left tackle. Trent Williamswho was rested for all three exhibition games.
The left guard position is a topic that the coach mike shanahan and his staff must resolve in the coming days. Aaron Banks (2021 second-round pick) hasn’t been consistent and the rookie jason poe has put pressure on him.
Jake Brendel had to take the place of the injured Daniel Brunskill as a center, but he has only three NFL starts in seven years as a professional.
The right tackle Mike McGlinchey he injured his knee, but the team is confident he can be fit when the regular season begins. and the rookie Spencer Burford he’s projected to be the starting right guard.

Shanahan needs strength on the offensive line so his inexperienced quarterback can quickly adjust to the transition and the 49ers can compete in the NFC West, which includes the champion Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals, who also made the playoffs last season. .
Led by Garoppolo, a powerful running game and a solid defense, the Niners advanced to the NFC Championship Game and went blow for blow with the Rams. But Shanahan and the general manager John Lynch they decided it was time to get rid of Jimmy G and give the keys to Trey Lance.
Garoppolo is recovering from shoulder surgery and remains on the 49ers roster for the time being.
The backfield enters the 2022 campaign as one of the best in the league, with Elijah Mitchell as lead actor.
Mitchell was second among rookies with 963 rushing yards and became the fourth rookie since 1990 with at least 100 rushing yards in five of his first 10 NFL games.
Deebo Samuel got his coveted contract extension and with it the Niners have back one of the most dynamic wide receivers in the league.
Samuel was third in the NFL with 1,770 combined yards and is the only player in history with at least 1,400 receiving yards and 300 rushing yards in a single season.
He had eight rushing touchdowns, the most by a wide receiver in a season.
In addition, Lance will have at his disposal George Kittlefourth among tight ends with 910 yards and fifth with 71 receptions in 2021.
Back on defense are the two leaders of a unit that was second in the NFC in allowing an average of 310 yards per game and fourth with 48 quarterback sacks.
Nick Bosa he was co-leader in the league with 21 tackles for loss and fourth with 15.5 sacks.
Meanwhile, the linebacker fred warner led the team with a career-high 137 tackles, becoming only the fourth player in history with at least 115 since the 2018 campaign.
The perimeter lost to the cornerback K’Waun Williamsbut in free agency the 49ers signed Charvarius Ward and his aggressive style fits perfectly with the DNA of this defense.
Emmanuel Mosley he’ll play on the opposite side, and the team hopes the sophomore can stay healthy after a rookie season in which he missed six games with injuries.
safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring) will start the season on the disabled list and will miss the first four games.
The 49ers have everything to be an NFC contender, except experience at quarterback. If Lance doesn’t give games away and is able to move on offense, San Francisco could be back in the Super Bowl and finally win an NFL title for the first time since 1995.
