Id really like some feedback, thanks

i dont think all of them will make the PS, but i can hope
The list looks good but I really think Manningham ,Dial and Caradine are on the pup and Moore, Tukuafu and Either Cam Johnson or Lockette get the nod for those spots. I also still think Celek wins the job and Darryl Mooris could sneak in somewhere. While I think Dahl make the 53 he doesn't do much for me would love to see someone step up and take that spot.
Anyone think McDonald isn't injured and this is a ploy to get more looks from Celek and Gray as the H-back? Goodwin injured for Kilgore/Looney...so on and so forth. I know this is a common tactic but was just curious what you guys thought.

I think that certainly may be the case with Goodwin. Not sure about McDonald. I would want my rookie tight end to get as many reps as possible, even if he has been blowing it up and you know he can play.

Not gonna bench a rookie in order to see what others can do during the preseason.

Yeah, just the conspiracy theorist in me...that he more than enough proved his worth and was featured last game. Now let's see Celek and Gray and even get Daniels some snaps as well.

Nice one, Gore. I think Skuta makes it because he can play inside and outside and is a ST guys.
Updated after Game 2:

Offense: (25)
QB (3): Colin Kaepernick, Colt McCoy and BJ Daniels
RB (4): Frank Gore, LaMichael James, Kendall Hunter and Anthony Dixon; Marcus Lattimore (PUP) - Note: Jewel Hampton is a better pure runner than James though. FB (1): Bruce Miller - Note: It's very risky not to have a pure FB here. If Miller goes down, we're in big trouble. Dixon is not a good FB/blocker and often times misses pass blocking assignments.
WR (7): X = Marlon Moore/Ricardo Lockette --- Y = Kyle Williams/Quinton Patton/Chad Hall --- Z = Anquan Boldin/Jon Baldwin; Mario Manningham & Michael Crabtree (PUP) - Note: Baldwin will be the #7 while he learns the playbook and will give the team 6 more weeks to evaluate before Manningjam comes back. All of these guys play very well on ST: Moore, Lockette, Williams, Hall, etc. Austin is similar to Hall, same age, but has head injuries and doesn't play ST. I will keep Ricardo Lockette at the X for now b/c we need speed/physicality out there for our offense to work while recognizing he has not had more than 2 opportunities out there in real game situations. Osgood could be a threat in the RZ and along with Lockette and Morris, if he can make the team, he is consistently one of the first three gunners down on ST coverage units every time. And this unit is under the microscope now (as it should be).
TE (3): Vernon Davis, Vance McDonald and MarQueis Gray (H-Back) - Note: MarQueis Gray (H-Back) finally gets a chance and shows his upside/versatility over Garrett Celek.
OT (3): Joe Staley, Anthony Davis and Adam Snyder; Luke Marquardt (PUP) - Note: Let's pray Marquardt is the real deal b/c right now, we have very poor T's behind the starters and one injury could very well mess with the OL's chemistry.
OG (3): Mike Iupati, Alex Boone and Joe Looney, (Adam Snyder)
C (1): Daniel Kilgore (Joe Looney) - Note: Jonathan Goodwin may end up getting cut or restructures his contract for a backup role if both Kilgore/Looney continue to excel here.

Defense: (25)
DE (3): Justin Smith, Ray McDonald and Demarcus Dobbs; Quinton Dial & Tank Carradine (PUP) - Note: Lawrence Okoye may still have a real shot here as well.
NT (3): Ian Williams, Glenn Dorsey and Lamar Divens - Note: Both Dorsey and Divens have stepped up there game and Dorsey can play DE as well. Divens appears to be a pure 2-gap disruptive NT. Even with the 1 game suspension for Dobbs, no need for a guy like Will Tukuafu anymore.
OLB (5): Aldon Smith, Ahmad Brooks, Parys Haralson, Corey Lemonier and Dan Skuta - Note: Cameron Johnson is playing really well sadly.
ILB (4): Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Michael Wilhoite and Nick Moody
CB (6): Tarell Brown, Carlos Rogers, Nnamdi Asomugha, Eric Wright, Perrish Cox and Tramaine Brock; Chris Culliver (PUP) - Note: Marcus Cooper is playing very disciplined/physical outside (love his size) and Darryl Morris is playing fantastic in practice. It's not over yet. Cooper and Morris could very well end up pushing Brock off the roster but it's a long shot right now.
S (4): Donte Whitner, Eric Reid, Craig Dahl and C.J. Spillman - Note: Trenton Robinson is small/short and is having a decent camp.

Special Teams: (3)
PK: Phil Dawson
P: Andy Lee
LS: Brian Jennings - Note: God has the edge naturally and I haven't noted any snaps by Kevin McDermott thus far. LS is a position we could eliminate with all the LS's we have in Kilgore, Looney, etc. who may also be able to provide coverage on kickoffs. But let's be real here...this is God we're talking about! Question: Do we really need a Long Snapper? Kilgore and Looney can snap as well as others and some can play on ST coverage units as well. Also, we have a major weakness at OT. I'm expecting us to sign a veteran very soon! I am heavy on WR and CB right now.

New educated guess at the 53...

QB - Kaep, McCoy, Daniels
RB - Gore, Hunter, LMJ, Dixon, B.Miller
WR - Boldin, Williams, Patton, M.Moore, Collie, Jenkins
TE - Davis, McDonald, Celek
OL - Staley, Iupati, Goodwin, Boone, A.Davis, Snyder, Kilgore, Looney

DL - J.Smith, McDonald, I.Williams, Dorsey, Dobbs, Tukuafu
OLB - Aldon, Brooks, Haralson, Lemonier, Skuta (OLB/ILB)
ILB - Willis, Bowman, Wilhoite
CB - Rogers, Brown, Cox, Asomugha, Brock, Morris
S - Reid, Whitner, Spillman, Dahl

ST - Dawson, Lee, Jennings

TOTAL = 52 with one spot for a potential waiver claim.

PUP/NFI LIST - Lattimore, Manningham, Crabtree, Carradine, Dial, Eric Wright, Marquardt

Only keeping 7 OLs while also keeping 7 WRs? No chance that happens.

Agree 100%. I think the 49ers look to bolster the backup DL or backup TE positions with the waiver wire.
Going to be really interesting to see who will get cut if we bring in Manningham, Carradine, Dial, and Lattimore after week 6 (pup).

That's 4 spots. one for sure will likely be wr in place of Manningham. One or both of Dobbs/Tukuafu could go with Carradine and Dial back. Going to be tough to cut 4 if we bring all those guys up to the roster. Probably won't though; will send some to IR even if they are ready.

Why didnt we IR Latt?

Actually looking it up he's on the non football injury list not sure how much different that is from PUP. Maybe list for guys not hurt during time in nfl or during a game/practice (off the field) or guys who are going through problems off the field. Just not sure how the rules are different though. I do know players on the PUP can get moved to IR if they aren't ready to go after the 6 weeks for PUP are up. And a player can't come back before 6 weeks if they are on PUP. If we let him I bet he would be ready to go mid season but maybe we do end up IRing him. After this year Dixon is a FA so he could be gone and Lattimore could be #4 back. Not sure we would re-sign Dixon and keep 5. If we don't keep him will need to replace him o ST and not sure who our short yardage back would be.

I could very well see us sending Carradine and/or Dial to the IR. Unless we would cut someone from other position not sure we would get rid of Tukuafu or Dobbs mid season when Carradine and Dial have had no practice time and no game time.

Edit: Here is an article explaining some stuff but still confusing.
http://www.ninersnation.com/2013/6/10/4411988/pup-list-rules-injured-reserve-rules-nfi-list-rules-49ers-injuries

None Football Injury list can be guys who were hurt from college (lattimore, carradine, dial). off the field (game and practice injury) or other injuries off the field (think like playing b ball at home or something like that). Not sure where a guy who is in trouble off the field would go o these lists. Says the NFI list is similar to the PUP list rules. So not sure if they can come back after 6 weeks like pup. Will have to keep digging to see how they differ.

Yeah? Do we even have more than 7 OL? LOL. If so, who would you keep?

And I'm with you on the WR's. With a heavy running-TE offense, we may just go with 6 esp. when we are expecting Manningham back after 6 weeks. Lockette could go to the PS (he is eligible).

WR (7):
X = Marlon Moore/Ricardo Lockette or Jon Baldwin
Y = Kyle Williams/Quinton Patton/Chad Hall
Z = Anquan Boldin/Kassim Osgood or Jon Baldwin; Mario Manningham & Michael Crabtree (PUP)
TE (3): Vernon Davis, Vance McDonald and MarQueis Gray (H-Back)
OT (3): Joe Staley, Anthony Davis and Adam Snyder; Luke Marquardt (PUP)
OG (3): Mike Iupati, Alex Boone and Joe Looney, (Adam Snyder)
C (1): Daniel Kilgore (Joe Looney)
