Heading into his 5th pro season, Garoppolo finally gets a shot to start. He lost time to a right shoulder sprain early in 2016 before Tom Brady returned from suspension and the 2017 trade made Garoppolo the Niners' savior. The O-line needs to improve, but the Niners signed C Weston Richburg and drafted OT Mike McGlinchey in Round 1 in hopes of doing just that.
