49ers Depth Chart: Roster Cuts Reflected In Latest Update

Yesterday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers officially cut down their roster from 89 players to 75 players. There were some mild surprises, but nothing that would really qualify as completely earth-shattering. Following the cuts, the 49ers released their latest depth chart, which reflects those cuts.

There aren't any significant surprises on the depth chart. The most notable change was that Demarcus Dobbs was added back in on the defensive side of the ball. In the last two depth charts he was only listed at tight end, whereas in the first depth chart he was listed only at defensive end (well, actually left defensive tackle). So now I suppose we can officially qualify him on the depth chart as a two-way player.

One thing that was interesting in looking at roster cuts and the depth chart was the release of Kourtnei Brown. He was listed ahead of Kenny Rowe, but this just goes to show we can only put so much value in a preseason depth chart. For example, Perrish Cox remains behind Tramaine Brock, but all signs point to Cox being more of a lock for fourth DB playing time over Brock. The next depth chart we get will be next week for the 49ers first game against the Packers.
