Elijah Mitchell, Jeff Wilson reportedly lead 49ers running back depth chart

The 49ers counted on a sixth-round rookie as their lead back last year. Elijah Mitchell took over early in the season as Week 1 starter Raheem Mostert ended his year after only 2 carries. Mitchell went on the start ten games for San Francisco totaling 963 yards in eleven appearances to break the 49ers’ single-season rushing record for a rookie. The one notable drawback on Mitchell’s rookie campaign was that he was inactive for six games, a theme that will be repeated throughout this piece. Continuing on that note, Mitchell had knee surgery in the offseason that forced him to miss all of the team’s spring practices. He’s expected back for training camp and is likely to start the season as the 49ers’ lead back once again.
