49ers roster cuts 2015: First round includes Lawrence Okoye, Trey Millard

The San Francisco 49ers cut down to 75 players on Monday, with ten releases, and four injury list moves. We've got the list.

The San Francisco 49ers formally announced their roster moves to get down to 75 players, and we have some surprises. The team released defensive tackle Lawrence Okoye and fullback Trey Millard, ending a pair of experiments that apparently never quite took off.

Okoye signed as an undrafted free agent in 2013, with no experience in American football. He spent 2013 on injured reserve, and then spent 2014 on the practice squad. He showed improvement this year, but it would appear the team felt his climb was going to be too much for the 49ers to extend his opportunity any further. He remains practice squad eligible, but it is entirely possible somebody else will claim him off waivers.

The 49ers spent a seventh round pick on Millard, following a season in which he tore his ACL. He was viewed as a potential special teams option, as well as an h-back kind of guy. He flew under the radar this year. I would be surprised if he was claimed off waivers, so it is entirely possible he could end up on the practice squad down the road.
