49ers 53-man roster projection before final roster cuts – Niners Nation
The San Francisco 49ers have wrapped up their 2015 preseason schedule. It is time for one last 53-man roster projection before final roster cuts go down. Here is our latest projection. You can view the pre-Texans one The San Francisco 49ers defeated the San Diego Chargers 14-12 to close out their preseason schedule. Final roster cuts are due by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, but odds are pretty good we start to hear about some cuts before then. The team is holding a full practice on Friday, so we’ll see if roster cuts happen after that. With all that in mind, I figured it would make sense to get one last 53-man roster projection together. And yet, nothing has changed. I have a couple areas where I am conflicted, but I just can’t quite pull the trigger. I’m sure some will disagree, but this is what I’ve got. Here are the areas where I am not sure what to do: : The tight end has shown some things further down the depth chart. I could see the team trying to trade one more tight end to keep him, but until we see a deal, I just don’t know that there is a spot for him. : We saw Philip Wheeler return to action on Thursday. Or really, get into action. He was healthy early in training camp, but a strain cost him the first three preseason games. Has Skov done enough in extensive opportunities this past month? : There is no word on his status with the league, and so he remains on the projection. Until we hear something remotely concrete, he is going to occupy a roster spot. Whether he actually plays next week against the Minnesota Vikings is another question entirely. : I’d like to figure out a way to work him in, but I’m just not sure. If he makes the roster, it will be in place of Corey Lemonier. : There are just so many bodies there, it’s crazy. I’m leaning toward thinking the 49ers are desperately trying to trade one of the linemen, but at this stage, who knows if they can get anything done. There is talent there, but I don’t know what the rest of the league needs at this point.  http://www.ninersnation.com/2015/9/3/9257649/considering-bruce-miller-implications-of-tj-ward-suspension-2014-arrest In order to provide our users with a better overall experience, we ask for more information from Facebook when using it to login so that we can learn more about our audience and provide you with the best possible experience.
