There aren't many Niners facing a hot seat going into this season, but it's undoubtedly a big year for McGlinchey. The No. 9 overall pick in 2018 is playing on a fifth-year option, isn't signed beyond this year and is coming back from a season-ending quadriceps injury suffered in November. At his best, McGlinchey has been a dominant run-blocker who fits the Niners' scheme well. But he'll need to prove he can stay healthy and produce in order to earn a second contract in San Francisco.

The bad news: Half the locker room might not want to be so patient with Lance's development — no recent quarterback entered the league with less college game experience — with Jimmy Garoppolo's chiseled jawline looming over his shoulder.
Nugget to remember: The 49ers had the only defense in 2021 that finished in the top 10 in DVOA without being in the top 10 in takeaways. There is probably some positive regression coming in its ability to force turnovers, which could vault DeMeco Ryans' unit to the top of the league.
