The San Francisco 49ers got down to their 75-man roster on Tuesday. They waived seven players, including Jewel Hampton; released David Reed, moved four players to the NFI list, including Marcus Lattimore and put three people on the PUP list, including NaVorro Bowman.
They have one more game Thursday night against the Houston Texans to make the final roster decisions, before reducing to the team down to the final 53 players on Aug. 30. That means 22 more players must be released, placed on various injury lists or traded away by 1 p.m.
The 49ers just released their unofficial depth chart for the Houston game, their first with the 75-man roster. While that’s filled out by the media department and not the coaching staff, it gives us a good picture of which players are hanging out on the fringes of the team and who will need good performances against Houston to ensure their spot on the final roster.
Let’s compare the current depth chart with the one from before the preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens to see who is rising, who is falling and who could find themselves without a team come Sunday.
