2020 49ers 53-player roster breakdown at Saturday cut-down deadline

Sep 5, 2020 at 3:31 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have their 53-player roster after three days' worth of moves, which started on Thursday.

Below is a breakdown, position-by-position, of the players who remain. Of course, this could change based on any transactions that take place after 1 p.m. on Saturday.

NFL teams can put in a claim for any of the over 1,100 new free agents who were waived by their respective former teams until 9 a.m. PT on Sunday.

The 49ers will also begin putting together a 16-player practice squad at 10 a.m. on Sunday. For the 2020 season, each NFL practice squad can carry up to six players with an unlimited amount of NFL experience.

Linebacker Fred Warner begins the season on the reserve/COVID-19 list and does not count against the 53-man roster. The 49ers apparently left a spot open for him as the team currently has 52 players on the active roster.

The San Francisco 49ers will host the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night, which will also serve as the team's Alumni Game. Of course, that means something very different this year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Usually, 49ers alumni would be in attendance. This year, 95 alumni will "attend" as fan cutouts, arranged in the shape of "SF" in section 109. 49ers players selected defensive lineman Arik Armstead as this year's Perry/Yonamine Unity Award for his off-field community efforts and work with the Armstead Academic Project. A $10,000 donation will be made to his charity of choice, the Players Philanthropy

The San Francisco 49ers' outing on Sunday against the visiting Miami Dolphins was horrendous. Not much else can be said of the 43-17 beating that head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad endured. Pro Football Focus released its grades from Sunday's game, and running back Raheem Mostert earned the highest marks for either team from the analytics site. Mostert returned after missing two weeks due to an MCL sprain and rushed for 90 yards on 11 carries. Much of the 49ers offensive line, surprisingly, graded well. Tackles Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey received a boost from strong run-blocking grades. According to Pro Football Focus, the team's best pass blocker ended up being tight end George Kittle. 49ers quarterbacks didn't grade well,

Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch believe Nick Bosa can become an Aaron Donald-type player for 49ers

Defensive end Nick Bosa hit a setback in his development. The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year suffered a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. Who knows what kind of difference Bosa's presence might have made for the struggling San Francisco 49ers? They probably would have more than just two wins at this point. Bosa hasn't been the only injury, but his loss may have been the most impactful for the defense. The pass rush hasn't been as effective without the second-year defender. Also missing is veteran Dee Ford, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan knows what a good pass rush can do for a defense, and the loss of Bosa has crippled the efforts to frustrate quarterbacks this season. The young pass
