Hightower's big-play ability gives him an edge

Scouts Inc. has more story lines to watch in this NFC West showdown.

San Francisco 49ers

Use the H-back
The 49ers want to run the ball more with RB Frank Gore under head coach Mike Singletary, but they don't have a true fullback on the roster. However, the 49ers have four tight ends on the roster -- so look for some H-back-type lead plays when the 49ers want to run between the tackles.
