The 49ers have lost several key free agents who played vital roles in their previous seasons. …These departures include Mike McClinchey, Jimmy Garoppolo, Hassan Ridgeway, Jimmie Ward, Emmanuel Moseley, Samson Ebukam, Azeez Al-Shaair, Daniel Brunskill, and Charles Omenihu. The 49ers will need to replace these players to maintain their level of play and remain competitive in the league.
Mike McClinchey was a starting offensive tackle for the 49ers, but the team decided not to re-sign him. Colton McKivitz may work in as the replacement, but the team will also likely look to the draft.
Jimmy Garoppolo, has gone to the Raiders, and will be replaced by Lance, Purdy or maybe even Darnold.
Jimmie Ward was a starting safety for the 49ers, but he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. A long time 49er, Ward will be missed this year.
Emmanuel Moseley is no longer in the mix, and though he missed a good chunk of the season he was a strong producer on the field. The 9ers will likely invest more in defensive back, but Womack drafted last year may be a player as well
Samson Ebukam, Charles Omenihu played as a defensive end for the 49ers, but both have signed elsewhere. The 49ers will likely look for veteran free agents who won't impact the compensation draft pick formula
Azeez Al-Shaair played as a linebacker for the 49ers, but he was not re-signed. McCray-Ball will likely see a larger role in the coming year
Daniel Brunskill also will not be returning to the team next season.
Overall, the 49ers have lost several key free agents, but they have options to replace them. The team could use the draft, free agency, or internal promotions to fill the
