K Graham Gano, P Michael Palardy, LS J.J. Jansen, KR Christian McCaffrey, KR/PR Damiere Byrd.

Gano is coming off a special season and Palardy showed that it was a good choice to keep him in the mix with other options available. Gano seemed to thrive in last year's preseason competition with then-rookie Harrison Butker, so it will be interesting to see how crisp Gano is without that type of scrutiny.
