Do you really want to give exposure to potential future players that could give the niners good depth or future stars? I say give them playing time but, no need to expose them with the first team and let other teams see there potential. If they do good with the first team, others are going to say hmmm, look at what the niners have. Then talent starved teams are gonna raid them before we can put them on ps (exceoption being Jenkins).
However, young talents that are gonna make the 53 man rooster like Dobbs, Cox, LMJ, yes, you want to give them playing time and experience againts quality players to sharpen their metal.
