Rogers looks to be the most physically imposing wideout during San Francisco's OTAs, CSN Bay Area reports.
Rogers was brought over from the CFL after posting impressive numbers with the Calgary Stampeders (1,448 yards and 10 touchdowns). His 6-foot-3, 210 pound frame makes him one of the team's larger receiving targets. Rogers acknowledges his plus size and tries to use it to his advantage by trying to "get the ball at the highest point and use my body to (box) out the defenders." He still has plenty of work to do before moving up the depth chart, but he would be a potential sleeper if he could carve out a significant role in this offense.
Patton is the early favorite to win a starting receiver role, CSN Bay Area reports.
Patton hasn't done a whole lot in his three seasons with the 49ers, but he is the defacto favorite to win a starting role alongside Torrey Smith due to a crop of young and unproven receivers behind him. This is by no means a final decision and things could change when training camp opens and the preseason begins.
Hodges did an excellent job filling in for Michael Wilhoite during the last four weeks of the season (39 tackles in four games). It was expected that the latter would reclaim his starting role in 2016, but early signs are pointing toward Hodges. Head coach Chip Kelly made an effort to point out that there are no definitive depth charts or position battles this early in the offseason program, but it's definitely a situation to monitor, as whoever ends up winning the starting spot next to NaVorro Bowman will be a cheap source of tackles in IDP leagues.
Ward has been lining up at outside corner with the first-team defense during OTAs, CSN Bay Area reports.
Last season Ward - who was drafted as a safety - was used primarily as San Francisco's nickel corner. During Tuesday's OTAs, he was spotted lining up on the outside with the team's first unit. Despite being 24-years-old, Ward is one of the more experienced defensive backs on the roster after the 49ers drafted three corners in the 2016 NFL Draft. If he were to win a starting job, his IDP value would receive a boost with increased playing time and his ability to gain out-of-position tackles.
Miller was informed that he will be a tight end this season, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.
Miller was seen taking snaps at tight end during the 49ers' offseason program. Running backs coach Tom Rathman made it official by telling Miller that he no longer has a spot in the running back room. This move should come as no surprise, as new head coach Chip Kelly rarely uses a fullback in his offensive attack. Miller will have a lot of competition for targets as a tight end, but he did put up a career-high 13.5 YPC in 2015, so there is some potential there if he has a significant role this season.
