49ers practice squad predictions 2015

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers can start signing players to their practice squad Sunday at 10 a.m. PT. Time to start predicting who might land on it.

The NFL runs waivers at 9 a.m. PT on Sunday, and an hour later, teams can begin signing players to their practice squad. The San Francisco 49ers have numerous players under consideration for their ten-man practice squad, and we should start to hear rumors pretty quickly.

I thought I would put together a full list of 49ers roster cuts so we can start making some practice squad predictions. You can view the full list of eligible 49ers and practice squad rules here. The 49ers do not have to sign the full ten-man squad on Sunday, but they are likely to sign players to most, if not all of the available slots.

I have listed all the roster cuts down below. I broke them up because Monday and Friday cuts already went through waivers. They still cannot sign to the practice squad until 10 a.m. PT, but they are free agents nonetheless. Saturday cuts clear waivers at 9 a.m. PT.

The 49ers could sign a player released from another team to their practice squad. However, assuming players clear waivers, I expect their practice squad to consist primarily of their own recent cuts. I think guys like Nick Moody and Andrew Tiller both get claimed off waivers. From the cuts this week, I'll go ahead and project the following for the practice squad:

QB Dylan Thompson
RB Kendall Gaskins
TE Xavier Grimble
WR DiAndre Campbell
OL Dillon Farrell
OL Justin Renfrow
DT Kaleb Ramsey
OLB Marcus Rush
CB Marcus Cromartie
S Jermaine Whitehead

Monday cuts

K Corey Acosta
LB Steve Beauharnais
CB Mylan Hicks
OT Sean Hooey
WR Mario Hull
WR Chuck Jacobs
WR Nigel King
LB Shawn Lemon
FB Trey Millard
DL Lawrence Okoye

Friday cuts

WR Issac Blakeney
OL Patrick Miller

Saturday cuts

WR DiAndre Campbell
CB Marcus Cromartie
G/C Dillon Farrell
RB Kendall Gaskins
TE Xavier Grimble
CB Leon McFadden
LB Nick Moody
DT Kaleb Ramsey
OL Justin Renfrow
DL Marcus Rush
NT Garrison Smith
QB Dylan Thompson
G Andrew Tiller
S Jermaine Whitehead
