Very Early 53-Man Roster Projections

Now that the draft is over, I will make some predictions as to who will open the season on the 53-man roster. This is extremely early and obviously, it will be much different when the time comes because of factors we don't know at the moment like injuries and preseason. But it is never too early to have an idea of what this team will look like. So here I am projecting this team. It will not include Mario Manningham or Marcus Lattimore as they are recovering from serious injuries suffered last season and those two players are expected to start this season on PUP. So with that, here is my prediction for the 53-man roster.

QB (3): Colin Kaepernick, Colt McCoy, Scott Tolzien
OL (8): Joe Staley, Mike Iupati, Jonathan Goodwin, Alex Boone, Anthony Davis, Daniel Kilgore, Joe Looney, Carter Bykowski
RB (5): Frank Gore, LaMichael James, Kendall Hunter, Bruce Miller, Anthony Dixon
WR (5): Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, A.J. Jenkins, Kyle Williams, Quinton Patton
TE (4): Vernon Davis, Vance McDonald, Garrett Celek, DeMarcus Dobbs

DL (7): Justin Smith, Glenn Dorsey, Ray McDonald, Tank Carradine, Ian Williams, Will Tukuafu, Quinton Dial
LB (8): Aldon Smith, Patrick Willis, Navorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Corey Lemonier, Parys Haralson, Nick Moody, Dan Skuta
DB (10): Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner, Eric Reid, Tarrell Brown, Chris Culliver, Nnamdi Asomugha, Craig Dahl, C.J. Spillman, Trenton Robinson, Perrish Cox
ST (3): Phil Dawson, Andy Lee, Brian Jennings

PUP: Mario Manningham, Marcus Lattimore

So those are my projections as of right now. Of course, lots of things will change between now and the final cutdown date. I would like to hear who should be on the roster and who should not.
