San Francisco 49ers: Previewing the 53-Man Roster
USA TODAY Sports
Colin Kaepernick will attempt to lead the 49ers to their sixth Super Bowl title this season.

The time has come for the San Francisco 49ers to begin paring down their roster. With only two more preseason games left on the calendar, general manager Trent Baalke and the 49ers coaching staff must make some tough decisions on who ultimately makes the 53-man roster.

The 49ers have a lot of work to do, as their performance in the first two exhibition games has been putrid. Typically it's foolish to put too much stock in preseason results, but the 49ers' play also creates that seed of doubt and uncertainty.

Two blowout losses in which the offense mustered only three points in eight quarters of football does not inspire confidence. In addition, allowing a total of 57 points, mainly to second-, third- and fourth-string players is also cause for concern.

As the season quickly approaches, let's take a closer look at who will make the 49ers' 53-man roster to open the season. The situation is quite fluid as injuries, acquisitions and also the looming suspension of Aldon Smith all factor into the composition of the final roster.
