49ers snap count vs. Vikings: Plenty of work for the first team

We break down the snap count for the 49ers third preseason game of the 2013 schedule. Who got more snaps this week?

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

There were a lot of question marks about the backup QB position heading into last night's preseason game, and the 49ers used it to showcase Colt McCoy in some form or fashion. The snap count is out for the game, and McCoy was tied for second most snaps. His 37 snaps more than doubled that of the next QB on the list, Colin Kaepernick. Kap had 17 snaps, B.J. Daniels had 15 snaps and Seneca Wallace had 3.

The 49ers got far and away their most extensive playing time on both sides of the ball. Kaepernick got three full series of play, but much of the starting offensive line went well into the second quarter with Colt McCoy. While there have been comments about Kap getting enough snaps, there is certainly no concern about the offensive line not getting enough snaps.

Jewel Hampton continued to get extensive work, and took a nice step forward against the Vikings after making his 49ers debut against the Chiefs. He remains a long-shot for a roster spot, but if the 49ers can get him through waivers, he would make a great practice squad option.

Matt Barrows made a good point about the likely pecking order at wide receiver. Austin Collie had 13 snaps and Chad Hall had 20 snaps, while Jon Baldwin got 23 snaps and Quinton Patton got 29 snaps in their respective 49ers preseason debuts. Hall seems to still be in the hunt for a roster spot, but what to make of Austin Collie? Even if the team was trying to protect him by limiting his snaps, you'd think they would get him into the game a bit earlier. Instead, he is continually coming in later in the game. Will we see him on the roster?

Parys Haralson had only 12 snaps on the night, as the team moved Dan Skuta ahead of him on the depth chart for the evening. In light of the Haralson trade rumors, are they trying to see what Skuta can do in short work after Corey Lemonier?
