NFI / Injured Reserve

Trey Millard - FB

Brandon Thomas - OG

Luke Marquardt - OT

Keith Reaser - CB

Kaleb Ramsey - DL

Lawrence Okoye - DL (either this or he's released)

Asante Cleveland - TE (he'll be the last left off the PS if he can't be moved here for some hyped up reason)

53 Man (note that Bowman starts the season on IR. So this list will be 54 players for now)


  • Colin Kaepernick

Full Back

  • Bruce Miller

Wide Receiver

  • Michael Crabtree
  • Anquan Boldin
  • Stevie Johnson
  • Quinton Patton
  • Bruce Ellington
  • Brandon Lloyd
  • Kassim Osgood (makes it because of his ST prowess)

Tight End

  • Vernon Davis
  • Vance McDonald
  • Garrett Celek (because his blocking is better than Carrier)

Offensive Line

  • Joe Staley
  • Mike Iupati
  • Daniel Kilgore
  • Marcus Martin
  • Adam Snyder (moved to the Release list and re-add Boone)
  • Alex Boone
  • Anthony Davis
  • Jonathan Martin
  • Joe Looney (accidentally left off this list completely...added back in by cutting down to 2 QBs)

Practice Squad

Kory Faulkner - QB

Jewel Hampton - RB

Devon Wylie - WR

Carter Bykowski - OT

Fouimalo Fonoti - OG

Kenneth Acker - CB

Shane Skov - LB (many don't think he would make it to this list before being plucked..but I see no other choice)

Morgan Breslin - LB (still not sure whether he is or will be or was already resigned....but likely, if he is resigned he'll go to the IR list)

Nick Moody - LB OR Chuck Jacobs - WR: either would be a good option at this point....though Moody really has no future as a LB on this team unless there are a lot of injuries, departures or such from the 8-9 other LBs we have.

Released or Traded

McLeod Bethel-Thompson - QB

Josh Johnson - QB

LaMichael James - RB (traded for likely nothing better than a 6th round pick)

Jon Baldwin - WR

Chuck Jacobs - WR

David Reed - WR

Will Tukuofu - FB

Derek Carrier - TE

Alex Boone - OG (traded for hopefully a 2nd or 3rd round pick) - (restored to the 53 man roster per suggestions)

Adam Snyder - OG

Al Netter - OG

Ryan Seymore - OG

Dillon Farrell - C

Mike Purcell - DL

Nick Moody - LB

Eric Wright - CB

C.J. Spillman - S (reason I see him released vs. Dahl is solely a CAP issue)

Raymond Ventrone - S

D.J. Campbell - S

James McCray - S

Perrish Cox - CB

Colton Schmidt - P
