NFL: San Francisco 49ers-Minicamp Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

The 3rd preseason game for the 49ers will give the best indication of how the final roster will shake out for the regular season. The 49ers host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday and the team will prepare for this game the same way they will prep for a regular season game. This game will be the most important one in the preseason.

The team released their depth chart for their 3rd game and there is a few changes. Jimmie Ward, who is expected back from injury, is listed as the starting safety. Joshua Garnett is listed as the starter at left guard, but is unlikely to play. Ahmad Brooks will be the starting SAM linebacker after running with the 2nd unit against the Broncos. Lorenzo Jerome is listed as the 3rd string safety after starting the last 2 games.

Moves on the defensive line do not seem to be completely done. The 49ers brought former 1st round pick Tyson Jackson and Ricardo Mathews in for workouts. This is after last week when the 49ers signed Leger Douzable. The defensive line will have the toughest cuts when the team trims down their roster. With a few high draft picks on the line, the battle for the other spots will be fierce.
