Key Questions From Camp

How will Alex Smith respond with yet another new offensive coordinator?With Norv Turner now the Chargers head coach, Smith is working with his third offensive coordinator in three pro seasons. This time, however, there is some continuity -- new coordinator Jim Hostler served as quarterbacks coach the past two seasons. The biggest question facing Smith might not be the coach calling the plays, but rather the offensive line blocking for him. Look for Smith to improve if he gets time in the pocket. Prediction - 3,100 yds, 19td's 14int's, rating of mid 80's.

Can Vernon Davis be the next Antonio Gates? The 49ers made Davis the sixth overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, and taking a tight end that high brings high expectations with it. But there's no denying the big-play potential he showed in between stints on the injured list as a rookie. Davis has been as high a profile rookie as there has been in the NFL in the last 2 years, with endorsements and all, but he hasn't yet solidified himself as an NFL star, much the same way Kellen Winslow Jr.'s career began under a cloud of dissapointment in Cleveland. The 49ers are counting on him to produce Antonio Gates-type numbers, but he's going to have to stay healthy to do it. Prediction: 45-50 catches, 600-700 yds, 5tds.
What's in store for Gore in 2007? Don't feel bad if you hadn't heard of Frank Gore before last season. You weren't alone. Now there are expectations for Gore to live up to -- and he's got lofty standards for himself. After rushing for 1,695 yards in '06, Gore is aiming for a 2,000-yard season. The 49ers coaching staff also believes in Gore, with plans to give him 20 to 25 attempts per game. Prediction: 1,300-1,400 yds, 8tds
