12 49ers players remain from the previous regime

Aug 23, 2018 at 12:07 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Thursday morning that linebacker Eli Harold is being traded to the Detroit Lions for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020. A third-round selection in 2015 himself, Harold was one of just 13 players who were holdovers on the 49ers roster from the regime that predated head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch.

The following 12 players remain from the previous regime.

  • Arik Armstead (drafted by the 49ers in 2015, round 1)
  • DeForest Buckner (drafted in 2016, round 1)
  • Ronald Blair (drafted in 2016, round 5)
  • Aaron Burbridge (drafted in 2016, round 6)
  • Garrett Celek (undrafted FA in 2012)
  • Joshua Garnett (drafted in 2016, round 1)
  • Raheem Mostert (undrafted in 2015)
  • Kyle Nelson (undrafted in 2011)
  • Bradley Pinion (drafted in 2015, round 5)
  • Joe Staley (drafted in 2007, round 1)
  • Jaquiski Tartt (drafted in 2015, round 2)
  • Jimmie Ward (drafted in 2014, round 1)

Lynch and Shanahan inherited 31 of Trent Baalke's draft picks, per Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. 23 of those players are no longer on the roster. Of those 23, five were traded, seven became free agents, and 11 were waived or released.

Tackle Joe Staley, a 12-year veteran, is the lone player remaining from the pre-Baalke era. He was part of a draft conducted by Scot McCloughan.

Training Camp: 49ers Must Keep/Cut These Players

The 49ers will cut good players in 2020. When you have a Super Bowl roster, sometimes good isn't good enough. As the 49ers currently work their way through an augmented and abbreviated training camp, the importance of analyzing talent is stressed now more than ever. During a regular training camp, coaches are able to evaluate their roster through drills, padded practices, inter-squad scrimmages with other NFL teams and most importantly, actual pre-season games. Many of these tools have been stripped away, and now coaches are left only with their padded practices to determine who will make the team. These next 4 weeks will serve as the initial building block for success, or failure, in the 2020 season. Let's look at 6 key players, and determine whether they should stay or

Raheem Mostert has some big aspirations. The biggest football-related one might be the San Francisco 49ers running back being motivated by Canton. He hopes to have a good enough career to one day find himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If last season's Green Bay Packers defense were the voters, Mostert might be a shoo-in. The former undrafted player rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Packers defense in the NFC Championship Game, helping to punch the 49ers' ticket to Super Bowl LIV. "[The performance] really opened up my eyes," Mostert said in April. "[I said], 'Hey look, I did this. Why stop? Just keep going. Keep doing the right
