Summary

Does anyone even recognize this defense? A devastating offseason that included the retirement of Justin Smith, Patrick Willis, and Chris Borland has left the ruins of a unit that was one of the best in the league in recent years. Outside of Navorro Bowman, who is two years removed from playing football, and Aldon Smith, who was suspended for a good part of 2014, the 49ers defense has nothing in common with the one that was one play from being Super Bowl champs just three short years ago. Head coach Jim Harbaugh is gone, so a team-wide slide is likely, with the defense leading the way. The 49ers were able to finish in the middle third of the league in fantasy D/ST rankings, in part because of a league-leading 23 interceptions, but strangely most of their best games were on the road after they had one of the weakest home-field advantages in the league at their new digs in Santa Clara. They could still get drafted on reputation, but the 49ers D/ST should be relegated to desperation streamer status because of their unreliable ups and downs and loss of top front seven talent.
