Projecting the 53-Man Roster

In perhaps the biggest surprise Zak Keasey will beat out Moran Norris

In perhaps the biggest surprise Zak Keasey will beat out Moran Norris

The 49ers are set to open up preseason tomorrow and then the cuts will begin. It’s always a crap shoot trying to figure out who will or will not make the squad. There is always one player who most think should make it but gets left out in the cold. So here is my prediction for the 53-man roster.

Quarterback:
Alex Smith, Shaun Hill, JT O’Sullivan

Running back:
Frank Gore, DeShaun Foster, Michael Robinson

Fullback:
Zak Keasey

Tight End:
Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker, Billy Bajema

Wide Receiver:
Isaac Bruce, Bryant Johnson, Arnaz Battle, Jason Hill, Ashley Lelie, Josh Morgan

Offensive Line:
Joe Staley, Jonas Jennings, Eric Heitmann, Adam Snyder, David Baas, Chilo Rachal, Barry Sims, Tony Wragge, Cody Wallace

Defensive Line:
Isaac Sopoaga, Ray McDonald, Aubrayo Franklin, Kentwan Balmer, Ronald Fields, Justin Smith

Linebacker:
Patrick Willis, Manny Lawson, Jeff Ulbrich, Parys Haralson, Brandon Moore, Larry Grant, Tully Banta-Cain, Dontarrious Thomas

Cornerback:
Nate Clements, Walt Harris, Shawntae Spencer, Reggie Smith, Tarrell Brown, Donald Strickland

Safety:
Michael Lewis, Dashon Goldson, Mark Roman, Keith Lewis

Long snapper:
Brian Jennings

Punter:
Andy Lee

Kicker:
Joe Nedney

KR/PR:
Allan Rossum

The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.

    Jim…I guessed I should have added. In no particular order. THis is just who I think will make it not the actual depth chart.

  • Billy

    What do you think will happen to Marcus Hudson or Cam Colvin I think they both have talent. I sure they dont get cut if not at least put them on the practice squad!!

  • AM

    I hope keasey makes it over norris cuz he works so hard and norris seems like he is never trying.

    I don’t really have a problem with that roster. Seems to make sense to me. The only difference I think will be O’Sullivan as the #2 ahead of Hill.

  • ninerfaithful

    i think keasey is pretty good player i enjoyed watching him in preseason last year against the chargers i could see him beating moran norris

  • Joe Gomez

    Word from camp is Smith is having a hard time separating himself from Hill and JTO..lets all get real none of these guys are gonna be good enough to take us to playoff contention. Any good FA’s out there? Favre?

  • Ninaz

    I always thought Moran Norris was a bit lazy out there i guess now that the new sherriff is in town hes not guaranteed a start no more.

  • lou

    I think they’ll keep Moran Norris and Keasey. Make room by putting Josh Morgan on the practice squad.

  • NinerPundit

    Hudson could take the spot instead of Strickland but Strickland signed that deal with that cap incentive so he may make it for that reason. Colvin could take Lelie’s spot (since Lelie can’t stay healthy) but will most likely end up on the practice squad.

    Joe Gomez.Alex is good enough to take us to the playoffs.You will watch and see.Fuck Brett Favre.And that was a pretty good 53 man roster.The only differance I see coming is Lelie getting cut and Marcus Huson making the team.Lelie is getting on my nerves.Do Lelie and Jennings sleep together?Cause they both sure miss alot of time on the field.

  • Adam49

    And I hope Goldson takes the starting safety job from Roman.

  • c-tree-p.o.

    Practice Squad? You haven't been to training camp to see Josh Morgan in action have you…He's going to be our best receiver next year once Bruce and Bryant leaves. He'll crack the top 3 this year.

  • Joe Gomez

    Adam49…hope your right because if your not then who do we turn to.. Hill?
