NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

One of Trent Baalke’s Team ACL draft picks, Tank Carradine, was given a contract extension on Tuesday. The deal will keep Tank on the team through 2017. Tank was the original of Trent’s Team ACL picks and he is only one of 2 still on the team, the other being Keith Reaser. Tank came in the league rehabbing from an ACL tear sustained while at Florida State. This preseason, he has played well while moving from defensive end to outside linebacker. He was playing out of position the last few years and that affected his play. The move to OLB may be able to get the best out of Tank.

With the 49ers ready to play on Monday night against the LA Rams, the team released their depth chart. Blocking for Blaine Gabbert and Carlos Hyde will be Joe Staley, Zane Beadles, Daniel Kilgore, Anthony Davis, and Trent Brown. The line should be much improved from that disaster they were last year. Vance McDonald will start at TE with Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton, and Jeremy Kerley on the outside. Vance had a good preseason and is looking to prove he is not a bust. The receivers will be looking to show up. They did not have a good preseason and they are a big question mark for this Chip Kelly offense.

On defense, Arik Armstead, Mike Purcell, Quinton Dial will start on the line with 1st round pick DeForest Buckner on the sidelines. Looking to pressure the QB in the absence of Aaron Lynch will be Ahmad Brooks and Eli Harold. They will be a key. Aaron was the unquestioned best pass rusher, but he will miss the 1st 4 games and the defense will need to generate a rush to have any chance in those games. At inside linebacker, joining team leader NaVorro Bowman will be a combo of Ray-Ray Armstrong and Gerald Hodges. Tramaine Brock and Jimmy Ward will be on the outside with Antoine Bethea and Eric Reid rounding out the secondary.
