*Michael Crabtree (PUP List)
Anquan Boldin looked solid in his short stint against the Broncos on Thursday night. GM Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh deserve major props for their acquisition of the veteran receiver.
A.J. Jenkins was up and down in his debut. He ran some good routes but also had a lost fumble. Additionally, Jim Harbaugh didn't feel the need to start Jenkins opposite Boldin.
What does that say about Jenkins? It doesn't say much in my opinion, but Jenkins will still need to show improvement in the remaining three preseason games for a starting gig.
Mario Manningham is still rehabilitating from the ACL injury he suffered last season. Williams didn't play in the preseason opener but was listed as the starter opposite Boldin on the 49ers depth chart.
I still think Jenkins gets the nod opposite Boldin, but Williams and Manningham should receive plenty of playing time.
Quinton Patton is still raw, but I love his potential. He should be a future starter down the line. Additionally, he is also suffering from a finger injury.
Kassim Osgood will play most of his snaps on special teams, but his surprise performance against the Broncos has me rethinking his role. Osgood can play some receiver, which increases his value.
Ricardo Lockette is on the bubble. He may end up making the roster because of the rash of injuries at receiver, but I have him just missing the cut as of now. Collie is in the same boat.
Marlon Moore surprisingly received the start for the preseason opener but didn't make much of an impact in the loss. He will likely be a practice squad addition.
Lavelle Hawkins and Charly Martin didn't factor into the passing game against the Broncos, so I'll take a wait-and-see approach for right now. However, their chances of making the roster are slim.
Chad Hall and Chuck Jacobs also have slim chances of making the roster, but both receivers did make a mark in their preseason debut.
