Predicting San Francisco 49ers' First Wave of Roster Cuts
USA TODAY Sports
The 49ers will have to trim their 90-man roster down to 53 in the coming weeks.

The time has come for NFL teams all around the league to start the final evaluation process for their final 53-man rosters en route to the 2014 regular season.

The San Francisco 49ers are no exception.

The roster-bubble watch is always an interesting one during training camp. We know the 49ers are a team stacked with talent, and the vast majority of this talent will almost assuredly be on the field come Week 1 of the regular season.

Behind that talent looms a number of fringe players—guys who, in whatever capacity, look to fill a selected few openings that San Francisco looks to carry on its roster.

As we know, NFL teams can carry a total of 90 players on their respective rosters throughout training camp. This number must be reduced to 75 following the third preseason weekend—this year's case being August 26.

The final trimming to 53 takes place on August 30.

Determining exactly who gets cut by the 49ers can be a challenging thing. There is a lot of talent within this franchise, even in the deeper realms of the roster.

Some players are almost assuredly going to be cut. Others have a good chance, but strong showings during the remainder of camp and into the preseason may change that. Then, of course, there are those players who justify us taking wild guesses.

Naturally, the preseason will shake things up quite a bit. We may see performances from bubble players whom we did not expect. Players presumed to make the roster may also slip.

At any rate, here is an early prediction of the initial roster cuts San Francisco will make as it trims its roster from 90 to 75 players.
