Cap and Roster Casualties?

Our draft success (Grade = A) got me thinking about who are the odd men out from the current roster.

Players with the largest potential cap savings if they do not make the 53 man. Numbers are from NinerCapHell.com. These numbers may be off if players have guaranteed money. Guaranteed money was included in Carlos Rogers calculation, but not in others. I'm happy to update the numbers if you have additional info. Also, happy to add people to the list, but I took off the obvious ones (we are not cutting Frank Gore).

Player Pos Contract Est. Savings
Jonathan Goodwin C 2013 $4,350,000
Donte Whitner SS 2013 $4,100,000
Tarell Brown CB 2013 $3,500,000
Mario Manningham WR 2013 $1,800,000
Nnamdi Asomugha CB 2013 $1,775,000
Colt McCoy QB 2013 $1,500,000
Tramaine Brock CB 2013 $1,323,000
Carlos Rogers* CB 2013 $1,160,000
Parys Haralson OLB 2013 $1,150,000
CJ Spillman FS 2014 $941,000

* 1.7M guaranteed (2.86 - 1.7 = 1.16)

Craig Dahl and Dan Skuta would be on the list between Parys and Spillman, but I just don't see them not making the team. Both were just signed to reasonable multi-year contracts.

Also, these players are not high salary, but are in the last year of their contract (or signed 1 year deals). At a minimum, the new rookie class (late rounders) can bump these guys at comparable salaries and lock up for 3 additional seasons.

Player Pos Contract Est. Savings
Anthony Dixon RB 2013 $630,000
Kyle Williams WR 2013 $630,000
Marlon Moore WR 2013 $630,000
Darcel McBath SS 2013 $630,000
Cameron Morrah TE 2013 $630,000
Demarcus Dobbs DE/TE 2013 $555,000
Perrish Cox CB 2013 $555,000
Chad Hall WR 2013 $555,000
Scott Tolzien QB 2013 $555,000
Will Tukuafu DE/FB 2013 $555,000
Michael Wilhoite ILB 2013 $480,000
Cam Johnson* OLB 2013 $405,000
Joe Hastings WR 2013 $405,000

* How did he only get a 2 year contract? Injury? Typo? Am I just confused?

Also, if we cut AJ Jenkins it looks like we would actually lose cap space because we would have to eat his remaining signing bonus. I wouldn't give up on him yet, anyway, just I'm just saying...

So, nation, predictions of who will not be with us in 2013?
