The 49ers made their first round of cuts today in order to get to 75-man limit. The deadline to do so is Tuesday. Remember, because he is an international players, Ramiro Pruneda doesn't count toward the final roster number
DT Joe Cohen. The former fourth-round pick started to look better later in camp, but he was starting well behind after a grisly knee injury last year. At one point, I thought he was a possibility for the practice squad. Now I wonder whether even that is a possibility.
TE Cooper Wallace. Not particularly big and not particularly fast. Evidently, the 49ers feel that 6-6 TE J.J. Finley has more potential.
S Lewis Baker. The 49ers liked the former linebacker's potential but he suffered a deep thigh bruise early in camp during a collision in the end zone and he has not been able to return. A spot on the practice squad still is possible.
QB Kyle Wright. The former Miami quarterback is the type of player who would have benefitted from a season in NFL Europa. Nowadays, however, teams have few options for players who need plenty of development. Wright may have had the best arm on the team.
G John Booker. Former San Jose State Spartan was brought in after camp started when Jeb Terry went down with an injury. Brian de la Puente's surprisingly good play left little room for Booker.
