Composition of the Niners' 2010 Roster

IMO, the 2010 Niners' roster is the strongest that we have had in at least 10 years, and maybe a lot longer than that!  So, given the roster as it stands today, how did we get there?  Glad you asked.  Here is an analysis:

Returning veterans from 2009 roster -- 64%  (34)

     On Offense ...............  14

     On Defense ...............  17

     On Special Teams .....   3

Free Agents / Trades ---------------------  13%  (7)

     On Offense ................    4

     On Defense ................   3

Practice Squad Promotions -------------   8%  (4)

     On Offense ..................  2

     On Defense .................  2

Rookie Draftees ------------------------------  15%  (8)

     On Offense ................... 5

     On Defense .................. 3

 

I love the fact that the roster upgrades came primarily from youth (4 + 8 + 1 rookie free agent = 13/53 = 25%) rather than veteran free agent signings (6/53 = 11%).  And, I fully expect that next year at least six veterans on this years' roster will be replaced by 2011 draftees and/or selected young free agents.  Is there any doubt that we are moving in the right direction?  I don't think so!
