Who's No. 1 on the 49ers? According to photos from today's on-field work, that number belongs to new quarterback Josh Johnson. He wore No. 11 at the University of San Diego and with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that jersey already has been taken by another 49ers quarterback.
For the record, both Johnson and coach Jim Harbaugh think that Alex Smith is No. 1 when it comes to the depth chart.
"Alex Smith is our starting quarterback," Harbaugh said Friday. "That's something that he's earned. They'll be competition at the quarterback position throughout the entire depth chart of our quarterbacks. They'll be competing for the second spot. They'll be competing for the third spot. Alex is always competing. That's just his makeup and his nature. Kaep's the same way. He's always competing. He's always trying to climb. I know Josh is that way. That's the way Scott Tolzien is. That's how all those youngsters are wired."
Other names belonging to numbers that I could decipher:
LS Ryan Pontbriand is No. 64
LS Kyle Nelson is No. 47
OT Kenny Wiggins is No. 69
WR John Matthews is No. 83
