49ers vs. Chiefs preseason 2013: Who to watch in the fourth quarter?

USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers and Chiefs will roll out most of their 90-man rosters in their Friday evening preseason contest. Who are the guys to watch late in the game?

The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs square off in a preseason contest that features plenty of position competitions for both teams. While most fans will pay attention through the first half of the game, the second half is for the diehards as we see some of the random names showing up on the roster.

Who will you be watching when we get into the third and fourth quarter? Joel Thorman from Arrowhead Pride and I decided to break down a few of the second half players we'll want to track. We've included jersey numbers as well, since some of these guys are only recognized by their own parents.

First up, here are three 49ers players I will be tracking late in the game:

QB B.J. Daniels (#5): The 49ers seventh round pick got in a snap at tailback and a few more with special teams, but 49ers fans want to see what the former South Florida QB can do from under center. Jim Harbaugh indicated Daniels would get some snaps, so we'll see if he becomes the next great backup!

CB Darryl Morris (#38): The undrafted cornerback out of Texas State put up a 4.33 40 at his Pro Day, and this week he has reportedly impressed at camp. So much so that he got some positive reviews from defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. He is battling for one of the last roster spots, or at least a spot on the practice squad, so he needs a solid performance.

TE MarQueis Gray (#46): The 49ers will be without second round Vance McDonald, which means Gray and Garrett Celek will get a lot more snaps behind Vernon Davis. Gray played QB and WR in college, but the 49ers are attempting to turn him into a tight end. He has impressed in camp this week with some nice catches, and will get a chance to show how he has progressed, possibly as early as the second quarter. Expect to see a lot of him on the field tonight.

Here are three Kansas City Chiefs players to keep an eye on late in the game.

FS Brad McDougald (#48): Only two Chiefs saw more snaps than him last week against the Saints. He had a terrific pass break-up on Jimmy Graham and drilled another receiver coming across the middle. He could make the team.

TE Demetrius Harris (#47): Not a likely candidate to make the team given the depth at tight end but he has a neat story. He's a former basketball play from UW-Milwaukee, having never played college football. He's clearly a project but watch him if you're curious how a basketball player projects to the NFL.

CB Vincent Agnew (#34): Watch him ... but for all the wrong reasons. He was absolutely torched last week as opponents caught 11 of 14 balls thrown his way, including two touchdowns. Surprisingly he had shown some good stuff during camp at times but he was just beat down last week against the Saints.
