My Latest 53 + PS +Injury Lists

I still can't keep straight exactly what the rules on the PUP and IR lists are (I think they just changed again, didn't they?), but here is my best attempt. I'm really looking forward to Thursday night's game; it should tell us a lot.

I'm only trying to project the week 1 roster. Obviously, things will change as red-shirted rookies learn the system better and injuries occur.


QB: Colin Kaepernick/Colt McCoy

RB: Frank Gore/LaMichael James/Kendall Hunter

FB: Bruce Miller/Anthony Dixon

WR: Anquan Boldin/Austin Collie/Kyle Williams/Marlon Moore

TE: Vernon Davis/Vance McDonald/Garrett Celek

LT: Joe Staley

LG: Mike Iupati

C: Jonathon Goodwin/Daniel Kilgore

RG: Alex Boone/Joe Looney

RT: Anthony Davis

DT: Ray McDonald/DeMarcus Dobbs

NT: Ian Williams/Glenn Dorsey

DT: Justin Smith/Will Tukuafu

OLB: Ahmad Brooks/Parys Haralson

ILB: Navorro Bowman/Michael Wilhoite

ILB: Patrick Willis

OLB: Aldon Smith/Dan Skuta

CB: Tarrell Brown/Nnamdi Asomugha

FS: CJ Spillman/Eric Reid

SS: Donte Whitner/Craig Dahl

CB: Carlos Rogers/Tramaine Brock/Perrish Cox

K: Phil Dawson

P: Andy Lee

LS: Brian Jennings

(RETURNER: LaMichael James)


QB: Scott Tolzien

WR: AJ Jenkins/Quinton Patton/Kassim Osgood

G: Adam Snyder

LB: Corey Lemonier

S: Trenton Robinson


QB: BJ Daniels

RB: Jewel Hampton

WR: Chad Hall

TE: MarQueis Gray

T: Carter Bykowski

DL: Lawrence Okoye

LB: Nick Moody

CB: Marcus Cooper

INACTIVE (whether IR or PUP):

RB: Marcus Lattimore

FB: Alex Debniak

WR: Michael Crabtree/Mario Manningham/Brandon Carswell

T: Luke Marquadt

DL: Cornelius Carradine/Quinton Dial

LB: Darius Fleming


So, yes, this means that I think Lockette is gone if he can't beat out Marlon Moore for a spot. I think Jenkins and Patton are both going to make it, even if they aren't active at first. Jenkins has to show up or he is gone by this time next year, first round pick or not...

Al Netter and Kenny Wiggins have real shots to make it I think...

I think Michael Thomas could beat someone out at safety. I'm really not sure about Ventrone or McBath making it; I think that that will depend on ST needs and who shows up for Seely...

I think that if BJ Daniels shows ANYTHING special in the preseason, then Tolzien will be gone and the 49ers will either move someone else to the PS or inactive 7 and call up Daniels if necessary (maybe keeping Cam Johnson or Nate Stupar instead)...

Chad Hall is going to be a close call; I think he might even make the 53 if he shows up...

I know that there are a lot who think otherwise out there, but I really think that Snyder AND Dahl both make the roster...

I think that they only carry three active ILBs, mainly because Skuta could play inside or out in a pinch...

What is the team going to do when Manningham is ready to come back? When Carradine/Dial are ready to go? Who gets the ax?
