49ers depth chart, Week 2 vs. Seahawks: About what we expected in Week 1

New, comments

The 49ers PR staff released the Week 2 depth chart. Nothing changed, but we have plenty to consider after one game.

The San Francisco 49ers communication staff published the Week 2 depth chart, and nothing has changed on it. As always, the depth chart is compiled by the football communications staff, and while coaches can offer input, it is not a coach-compiled depth chart.

That being said, it is still worth a look now that the 49ers have one game under their belt. We know that the defensive line rotation is about what it shows on the depth chart. Tank Carradine, DeForest Buckner, Earl Mitchell, and Arik Armstead played in the base down formation. Solomon Thomas ended up with the most snaps for the reserves, finishing with five more snaps than Earl Mitchell. Xavier Cooper and D.J. Jones each ended up with double digit snaps in rotational work.

The 49ers were in their base defense 57 percent of the time against the Carolina Panthers, and the lineup was as it looked here. The one change was Ray-Ray Armstrong moving into the starting lineup when Reuben Foster got hurt.

Cornerback Keith Reaser and defensive back Adrian Colbert did not get any defensive snaps, playing exclusively on special teams. Rashard Robinson, Dontae Johnson, and K’Waun Williams got all the snaps at cornerback.

On offense, it was as expected for the most part. Pierre Garçon and Marquise Goodwin got the lion’s share of the wide receiver snaps, with Trent Taylor the first receiver off the bench. Aldrick Robinson finished with ten snaps, while Kendrick Bourne had three. I would like to see Robinson get a little more work if possible. I think his knowledge of the offense coupled with his speed could be a boost for this unit.
