It is the time of year that players on the bubble of making a team fear the most. Competition is fierce in each and every play of practice. Some of these guys know this could be their last Training Camp, some of these guys will be in different parts of the country playing for different teams. Here at the Sports Cave we focus particularly on San Francisco Bay Area Teams. So lets now go ahead and I will give you guys a preview of what MY 49ers 53 man roster would look like.
QB - Alex Smith
|ALEX SMITH LEADING THE 49ERS HUDDLE|
FB - Bruce Miller
WR - Michael Crabtree
Ted Ginn Jr
TE - Vernon Davis
OL - Joe Staley-Mike Iupati-Jonathan Goodwin-Alex Boone-Anthony Davis
Jason Slowey-Leonard Davis-Chase Beeler-Daniel Kilgore
The Offense is very difficult when it comes down to the final cuts, some hard decisions for sure. The 49ers have a lot of depth at RB and WR, I managed to get in all of the offensive playmakers including Ted Ginn Jr who will primarily be the Returner for the 49ers. The hardest part is the Offensive Line, there is a lot of depth at the interior of the Line, should anything happen to any of the Guards or Center we are covered well. If Joe Staley or Anthony Davis go down, then Boone can take their spot and either Leonard Davis, Daniel Kilgore or Slowey can take Boone's spot.
|THE 49ERS VAUNTED DEFENSE|
Demarcus Dobbs-Ricky Jean Francois-Ian Williams-Will Tukuafu
LB - Ahmad Brooks-Patrick Willis-NaVorro Bowman-Aldon Smith
Larry Grant-Parys Haralson-Tavares Gooden-Eric Bakhtiari
CB - Carlos Rogers S - Dashon Goldson
Tarell Brown Donte Whitner
Chris Culliver Trenton Robinson
Perrish Cox CJ Spillman
Tramaine Brock Colin Jones
The 49ers defense is stacked. All 11 starters return, plus there is great depth essentially all over the defense. Safety depth is a little worrying and most of the backups here are Special Team stars (Spillman and Jones in particular). Hard to beat the depth and talent at DL, LB and CB.
SPECIAL TEAMS (3)
K - David Akers
P - Andy Lee
LS - Brian Jennings
Notes: Rookie LB Darius Fleming will be on IR. Rookies Cam Johnson, Chris Owusu and Joe Looney to the Practice Squad, along with 2nd year TE Konrad Reuland. Demarcus Dobbs versatility allows the 49ers to get away with only 2 TE's on the 53 man roster. Very solid team top to bottom and that about sums it up.
Over and Out.
