On this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast, we continue our evaluation of the 49ers roster by looking at Tier 2 and Tier 3 players in our roster model. Which players do we think are on their way out in the near future? Which players do we expect to play a significant role on the next good 49ers team? And what happened to the core of the roster we thought we had last year? All that, plus coaching news, Super Bowl predictions, and the AAF.
