49ers waive Melvin Oliver

Well, for those of you who voted NO in this poll, you were right.  The 49ers waived Melvin Oliver today, putting them at the 81 player limit.  Maiocco said that:

Team officials felt there was good enough depth at defensive end to make this move with Justin Smith, Isaac Sopoaga, Kentwan Balmer, Ray McDonald, Walter Curry, Atiyyah Ellison, LaJuan Ramsey and Louis Holmes on the roster.

In our last 53-man roster projection, Oliver, Curry, Ellison, Ramsey and Holmes were guys I left off, although I definitely think Holmes has a shot at making the practice squad

The only surprising thing about this move is that it happened so early.  I thought Oliver would get a shot at making the roster, but clearly the 49ers don't feel that way.
