Reuben Foster listed as starter in 49ers-Chiefs depth chart

Aug 7, 2017 at 6:44 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers released an unofficial depth chart for Friday's exhibition game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. For those wondering who would be listed as the starter at the Will linebacker spot, it is none other than rookie Reuben Foster. Ray-Ray Armstrong is listed with the second-team unit. The two are competing for the starting Will linebacker spot.

As expected, Brian Hoyer is listed as the starting quarterback while Matt Barkley, C.J. Beathard, and Nick Mullens are listed as his backups – in that order. Pierre Garçon and Marquise Goodwin are the starting wide receivers. Joshua Garnett, who is not expected to be available for the game – or any of preseason – due to a knee injury, is listed as a starter with Zane Beadles listed with the twos. Safety Jimmie Ward, who is also not expected to be available (he is on the physically-unable-to-perform list), is also listed as a starter.

The starting defensive line consists of Arik Armstead, Earl Mitchell, DeForest Buckner, and Tank Carradine with rookie Solomon Thomas listed as Carradine's backup at right defensive end.

Opposite cornerback Rashard Robinson is Dontae Johnson, who has been getting work with the first-team defense during practices.

Of course, the depth chart is just an unofficial guide and not a commitment to where or when a player might play. Teams are required to release depth charts and they don't necessarily reflect what a depth chart might look like once the regular season kicks off.

Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports decided to look back at the 1980s and identify his top-five rivalries of that decade. There are several to choose from, which might make such a subjective list challenging to create. The San Francisco 49ers were represented within the ranking, not once, but twice. Sitting at No. 5 was the rivalry between the 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings. DeArdo lists the best game of the decade between the two teams as the October 30, 1988 matchup that saw the 49ers beat the Vikings 24-21. San Francisco owned a 5-3 regular-season record against Minnesota during the 80s, winning during

The San Francisco 49ers boasted the league's best pass defense last year, which was led by veteran cornerback Richard Sherman. He didn't do it alone, though. The group, consisting of Emmanuel Moseley opposite Sherman, and K'Waun Williams covering in the slot, earned a combined Pro Football Focus grade of 89.2 between the three players. That was good enough to rank it No. 2 on the analytics site's list of the NFL's best cornerback trios (h/t to Jeff Deeney). The trio of Stephon Gilmore, Jason McCourty, and Jonathan Jones with the New England Patriots was the lone
