Inside Rosenthal Scoop? Hyde Could be a Surprise Cut

While it was noted earlier that NFL Media analyst LaDainian Tomlinson has projected 49ers' running back Carlos Hyde as a 1,300-yard rusher this upcoming season, it seems like Hyde's evaluation from the new regime is mixed...'s "Around The NFL" crew--Gregg Rosenthal, Dan Hanzus, Marc Sessler and Chris Wesseling--aired a Friday podcast naming several veterans who could be surprise cuts heading into the season.

Specifically, Rosenthal called out Hyde during podcast game topic, "What's More Likely?":

"What's more likely: Brandon Albert, left tackle of the Jaguars, gets cut at the end of training camp after being a pain all offseason? Or Jamaal Charles, a future Hall of Famer in my mind, gets cut at the end of training camp? Or Carlos Hyde as a surprise cut — I heard this one from a little birdy, insider."

Who is this little birdy that Rosenthal is suggesting? Despite it being several weeks into the offseason, this hasn't been the first time we've heard rumblings about Hyde, who might be a poor fit in the new zone-blocking scheme under head coach Kyle Shananhan and running backs coach Bobby Turner.

Rookie running back Joe Williams projects as an ideal one-cut running back for the new coaches' scheme. It's also worth noting that Hyde has failed to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark in his three seasons with the 49ers due to injuries.

Rosenthal went into more detail today in 'NFL training camp: Thirteen potential surprise cuts':

Carlos Hyde, RB, San Francisco 49ers: Coach Kyle Shanahan was going to be "sick" and dreaming of rookie Joe Williams if the team didn't draft him, according to the MMQB's Peter King. So general manager John Lynch wound up trading up to get a guy in Williams who wasn't even on his draft board.

Rapoport: 49ers willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo until cut-down day

Jimmy Garoppolo isn't practicing, but he is throwing next to his soon-to-be former San Francisco 49ers teammates. He looks healthy, too, according to one reporter. "I watched Jimmy Garoppolo make about 25 full-tilt throws to a junior staffer on a side field during the 49ers' training-camp practice Friday," wrote Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, "and there's no question he's close to 100 percent healed after his March shoulder surgery and one of the top 32 QBs in the league right now. Maybe it's a shorter list than 32." The quarterback is cleared to do whatever he needs within the restrictions of his rehabilitation from that March 8 procedure. He has full

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers are comfortable with rookie Samuel Womack III serving as the team's nickel cornerback. The Niners announced that they have released veteran Darqueze Dennard, who was competing with Womack for the spot. Dennard wasn't the only player cut as the team makes its way down to the 85-player maximum required by 1 p.m. tomorrow. The following players were also waived. The moves come ahead of the team's scheduled 10:25 a.m. Monday practice. FB Josh Hokit WR KeeSean Johnson DL Tomasi

NFL teams had until 1 p.m. PT to reduce their rosters down to a maximum of 85 players on the active/inactive list. The San Francisco 49ers got there by releasing defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche. The roster move follows those that came on Monday when San Francisco released cornerback Darqueze Dennard and waived fullback Josh Hokit, wide receiver KeeSean Johnson, and defensive lineman Tomasi Laulile. The 49ers initially signed Nkemdiche to a one-year deal on July 26. The Arizona Cardinals drafted Nkemdiche (6-3, 296) out of Ole Miss with the No. 29 overall pick in 2016. He registered 15 tackles, a quarterback hit, and a pass defensed through nine game appearances with the Seattle Seahawks last season, per

DeMeco Ryans on why Javon Kinlaw could be key to 49ers defense's success

By David Bonilla

Last week, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans identified three things defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw needed to work on in preparation for his third NFL season: technique, technique, technique. Kinlaw is returning after undergoing season-ending reconstructive surgery to repair his ACL last year. To this point, the former No. 14 overall pick's contributions have been underwhelming. That could change in 2022, though. Kinlaw has put in the work during his recover, and as the 49ers ramp up his training camp workload, many feel that the defender could be on the cusp of becoming a dominant force for the defensive front. "I think Javon, he's
