We went into this week’s poll knowing the San Francisco 49ers are a loaded team with many positions of strength.

The result of the poll backed up those thoughts. We had a very tight vote as fans voted for the top position on the 49ers' roster. In the end, running back won with 33 percent of the vote as of 5 p.m. ET. Linebacker was right behind at 31 percent. Offensive line (14), wide receiver (12) and defensive line (10) trailed.

I actually would have voted for the defensive line. This unit is nine, 10 deep. Some good players are going to be cut, and the depth there is stunning. But I do understand why running back won.

Frank Gore is still a top player and youngsters Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore each have big potential. Veterans Bruce Miller, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James all bring something to the team.

Really, there was no wrong answer here. The 49ers are stacked.
