The San Francisco 49ers released their second depth chart of the preseason earlier this week. I did not post it at the time, but some people were asking about it, so I figured I would drop it in here. I didn’t post it because it is the same as last week’s depth chart. You can view it down below.
The depth chart is issued by the communications staff, and while it might include a little bit of input from the coaching staff, it is mostly just for show. The position coaches met with the media on Monday, and several of them made it clear they are mixing and matching options, rather than focusing on who is starting right now. They will have a depth chart, but we’ll never see it. Of course, that won’t stop us from discussing this one!
This one came out before Thad Lewis was placed on injured reserve, so it does not reflect that or the Christian Ponder signing.
