The San Francisco 49ers' 10-player practice squad is now complete. NFL teams were allowed to officially signing players to their practice squads starting at 10 a.m. PT. This is following the 9 a.m. PT deadline to claim a player off of waivers.
Below is a list of players that the 49ers have reportedly signed or will sign.
WR Dres Anderson
Anderson was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2015.
OL Alex Balducci
Originally a nose tackle at Oregon, Balducci was converted to an offensive lineman after being signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers.
OL Fahn Cooper
A fifth-round draft pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft. Cooper was waived by the team on Saturday.
TE Je'Ron Hamm
Hamm was claimed off waivers by the 49ers in December.
WR Chris Harper
Harper (5-11, 185) was waived by the Patriots on Saturday. He had spend most of the 2015 season (his first in the NFL) on New England's practice squad. While his signing with the 49ers was widely reported, it is not officially known if he is joining the active roster or practice squad. If the practice squad, he will be the only member that was not with the 49ers this offseason.
Flyin to San Fran tonight. Thankful for the opportunity from the 49ers.— Christopher Harper (@ItsChrisHarper) September 4, 2016
CB Prince Charles Iworah
A seventh-round draft pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft.
OT Norman Price
Offensive lineman signed as an undrafted free agent following the 2016 draft.
LB Marcus Rush
Rush led the league in sacks during preseason and looked like a solid pass rusher. However, his run support looked like it needed to develop.
LB Shayne Skov
Skov appeared in 15 games with the 49ers in 2015. He has spent time on the 49ers and Buccaneers' rosters and practice squads since going undrafted out of Stanford in 2014.
RB Kelvin Taylor
The sixth-round draft pick by the 49ers in May and son of great RB Fred Taylor.

A maximum of four players can have two years of NFL experience. A player is credited with a year of experience after spending six games on the active roster. No player can spend more than three seasons on NFL practice squads.
Players on a practice squad can be claimed by any NFL team, but must be placed on that team's active 53-player roster. The 49ers spent Saturday trimming their roster down to the 53-player limit.

WR DeAndre Smelter was not claimed, so he reverts to #49ers injured reserve list.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) September 4, 2016
Key remaining deadlines and dates are listed below.
Sunday, September 4
NFL clubs may begin establishing a practice squad of 10 eliglbe players starting at 10 a.m. PT.
Thursday, September 8
Top 51 rule for all NFL clubs, a rule that states only the top 51 contracts on a team count toward the salary cap, expires at 9 a.m. PT. Of course, this is not as important to teams like the 49ers, who have a big surplus in cap space.
Monday, September 12
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers, regular-season opener, Levi's Stadium, 7:20 p.m. PT.
