Pick 2 players who will surprise and make the roster

Every year there are a couple guys who make the roster when nobody saw it coming. Last year it was Celek and McBath.

Give me 2 players (one offense, one defense) who shock the world and make the 53. Here's my guess:

Offense: Chuck Jacobs
Defense: Nate Stupar
I think we go with Moody but Stupar played well the last 3 games after a bad first game. I'd hate to lose Moody but Stupar might be worthy. Yeah Chuck Jacobs would hate to see him get cut because doubt he makes it to the PS and stays there.

I'm going to go McDermott over Jennings and Tony Jerod-Eddie over Tukuafu. Just for fun hardest guys to potentially cut will be Jacobs and Gray.

Johnson

not much of a surprise but I dont think we get surprises this year

Good call. I can see both happening.

Dude, Jacobs has jump ball skills. Polish him up a little and he'll be able to play with the big boys.

the only position that worries me is the most important, backup OL
I'm pretty torn on Hawkins and Jacobs. Jacobs probably has more potential but Hawkins might be able to come in and contribute right away. Problem is the #6 WR if we keep one would likely be inactive anyway. Damn 46 man rule.

i think they are better than they looked. besides, if they have to play they will have our probowl linemen playing next to them so it wont all be on them. as good as our starters are i think they can survive a missing lineman or two for a while. plus kaep is fast as s**t and quick to get the ball away so he'll be ok.

Agreed. A little seasoning and some added weight (he's listed in the 170's) and we might have a hidden gem here.

At this point I'd put Jacobs or Gray as the 8th or 9th OL just so it doesn't look like we are keeping 7 WRs or 4 TE's which both seem unlikely. Just joking but really I'd rather cut Looney at this point than Jacobs or Gray. Just unfortunate because we probably don't even need 6 WR's because we hardly ever use more than 3 wr sets. Just to bad because I think Hawkins and Jacobs earned a spot.


As for backup OL not worried because will only keep the starting 5 then Snyder and Kilgore, possibly Looney. Rest of guys who were bad won't make it anyways. Then next draft I hope we take a C/G or G/T versatile type in round 3-5.

Word. At this point I'd rather cut Looney and see if we can stash him on the practice squad. Pick up a vet o-lineman with experience who can pick up the offense quickly.
niners trade kyle Williams and give his spot to Lavelle Hawkins, and cut joe looney for carter bykowski
Amameh and Collie.

Another WR trade

Definitely would not have seen that coming. I like it.
