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.

PFF projects Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49ers starter, Dee Ford as a player to watch

By David Bonilla
Jul 19, 2021

Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions. However, some wonder how quickly rookie Trey Lance will get up to speed and if the No. 3 overall pick could show enough in training camp to create a difficult decision for head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus projected the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams, and one of the biggest 49ers-related takeaways is that he has Garoppolo firmly situated as the team's starter, despite the analytics site stating in the past that it holds Lance in high regard and believes he will find NFL success. Lance is still a



Cynthia Frelund projects Javon Kinlaw as 49ers' most improved player in 2021

NFL Network's analytics expert, Cynthia Frelund, recently went around the NFC and named one player for each team who she projects as its most improved player. "Using my forward-looking data models, I've identified one player from each NFL team who projects to see such an uptick in 2021 based on their performance trajectory and the scheme they'll be playing in this season," wrote Frelund. Second-year defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw is that player for the San Francisco 49ers. The nearly 320-pound defender's rookie statistics weren't overly impressive. However, his game film and work in the trenches often showed much potential, setting him up as a good choice for Frelund's pick. "Kinlaw's official rookie stat line: 1.5 sacks, 19 pressures, three TFLs,



Jim Trotter breaks down why 49ers are high on DeMeco Ryans

The San Francisco 49ers promoted DeMeco Ryans to defensive coordinator after Robert Saleh left to become the head coach of the New York Jets. Ryans was asked in June what fans can expect to see from his defense this season. Was he planning to follow the same blueprint that Saleh laid out, or were some bigger changes on the horizon? "Our defense will be a fast, attacking, aggressive defense," Ryans responded. "I want guys to play fast. I want guys who are smart. I want guys who are going to play physical. That's one thing for me is just growing up, watching the 49ers play defense. The defense has always stood out here. This has been a defensive organization. They



Mariucci: 49ers might have the 'best roster in football' entering 2021

During a segment on Inside Training Camp Live, NFL Network's Steve Mariucci, or "Mooch" as he is known to fans, was asked to share his thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers as the team prepares for the 2021 season. It sounds like the analyst, like fans, has high expectations for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad. While 2020 was a disappointment, the team owned the most injury-plagued roster in the league. The campaign wasn't what coaches, players, and fans envisioned for an organization coming off of a Super Bowl appearance. "This team, the 49ers, [were] 6-10, last place, and they might have the best roster in football," Mariucci told Andrew
