49ers Roster Situation As 2011 NFL Free Agency Approaches

New, comments

As we head into our the second day for official undrafted free agent signings, the 49ers are likely just about wrapped up with the UDFAs. We might see one or two straggle in but for the most part as the team prepares to start training camp on Thursday, that part of the roster is just about set. After the jump I've posted a rundown of the entire roster as it currently stands. Big thanks to the two Matts (CSNSac Bee) for their foot work in verifying some of these UDFAs.

The list reflects players already under contract, UDFAs signed yesterday, and players who have agreed to terms but have not officially signed (so no mention of TKO). If you head over to Maiocco's blog post on the UDFAs, you can see a brief snippet on each of rookie. Starting later today we'll have our own breakdowns of each new rookie. We'll have a lot of posts coming out over the next week. On the one hand everybody loves new information and analysis, but on the other hand it will be a lot of posts coming at you. I suppose that's what we have to live with when we're compiling four months of information into one week of posting space. Good times.

Later tomorrow as we know more about final UDFA signings we'll get a projected depth chart together so we can really put together some better predictions heading into free agency. As it currently stands, the 49ers have 78 players on their roster or expected on their roster once contracts are finalized (draft picks, Alex Smith). That leaves 12 roster spots with 14 free agents and some holes to fill. A quick look through the 49ers free agents reveals at least five guys I'd say the 49ers are likely to let walk without an offer: Troy Smith, Brian Westbrook, Tony Wragge, Jeff Reed, Will James.

That brings the team down to nine free agents. At least one of Dashon Goldson, Aubrayo Franklin and Manny Lawson is walking, and the chances of it being two players is probably decently high. That would open up a couple more spots on the 90-man roster. It's hard to pick positions right now because we don't know if the team will be looking to add some safety depth, or maybe another outside linebacker if Manny walks. They could add depth there anyway, but it really just depends on what we see in the coming days of free agency.
