Richard Sherman expected to start, with competition opposite him

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he anticipates Richard Sherman holding onto his starting job.
“We brought Sherm in here to be a starter.
That’s what we’re expecting.
But his position is no different from every other position.” Ahkello Witherspoon and Tarvarius Moore, the 49ers’ most recent third-round draft picks, and free agent signee Jason Verrett will compete on the other side.
Witherspoon has appeared in 26 games with 21 starts in his two seasons; Moore played 16 games with 12 starts last season as a rookie; the injury-plagued Verrett appeared in 25 games with 23 starts in his five seasons with the Chargers.
1 thing I look for in a corner is people who can cover people,” Shanahan said.
Verrett has done that.
He has good man-to-man skills.
I just hope he’s healthy.” Shanahan said he wants all of the team’s cornerbacks to be able to play either side.
