Making Call on San Francisco 49ers' Hardest Remaining Cuts
Tony Avelar/Associated Press

Two weeks of the San Francisco 49ers' preseason has passed and general manager Trent Baalke should have a better idea of which players will still be with the team when the roster is trimmed to 53 members.

Both of the 49ers' preseason games have been nothing short of disasters with San Francisco outscored 57-3 in defeats to the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos.

There has been largely more bad than good in those two losses, but there are still plenty of players who have impressed and boosted their chances of earning a place on the final roster.

Those who have struggled will hope to catch the eye in the final two preseason clashes against the San Diego Chargers and the Houston Texans, although their chances may diminish in those contests if head coach Jim Harbaugh's words are to be believed.

After marking the first football game to be played at their new Levi's Stadium home in disappointing fashion, Harbaugh indicated that the Niners would not keep experimenting as he called for his team to "tighten this down fast."

Harbaugh's comments will come as bad news to the players that have failed to catch the eye so far in preseason, and here I take on the role of Baalke by making the call on those who are likely to face a nervous wait ahead of the final cut-down date.


The first wave of cuts must occur prior to 4:00 p.m. ET on Aug. 26. The 49ers must reduce their roster to a maximum of 75 players. The cut down to the final 53-man roster is to be done by 4:00 p.m. ET on Aug. 30.
