49ers roster 2014: Building toward the 90-man roster

We take a look at the 49ers 2014 roster, which currently stands at 73 players.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Word out of the NFL owners' meetings on Monday was that the San Francisco 49ers agreed to terms on a 1-year contract with cornerback Perrish Cox. Cox tweeted out a picture of him signing the contract, and it appears he is mailing it back to the 49ers. Once it gets back to them, they will send it off to the NFL and NFLPA for processing. Upon completion, that will increase the 49ers current roster to 73 players.

The team can build up to 90 in the offseason. They will reach that with some portion of their 11 draft picks, undrafted free agent additions, and any remaining veteran free agents they might add. We might see some minor roster shuffling, but I don't expect much more in the way of veteran free agents for the time being.

Last July, I put together a table with a breakdown of the entire roster by position. I've re-created that table with the current roster. It's a little easier than listing them all out top to bottom, as I think the spacing makes it easier to read through the whole thing. I'll update this again after the draft and UDFA work is complete.

If you'd like, you can compare this to last year's roster. I created that once the full 90 were signed, so we can see where there were more players by position. Joe Looney and Adam Snyder can also play center, but I still suspect the team drafts or signs another center, and probably another utility offensive lineman. We'll see at least one more quarterback added. And I'd imagine a few more cornerbacks and safeties.
