Rookies not the only ones attending 49ers rookie minicamp


The players participating in the 49ers' rookie minicamp this weekend aren't all rookies. The group falls into three categories: draft picks and undrafted free agents; tryout players; and players who were on the roster last year that did not accrue any pension credit.

By my calculation, there are six players in that last category:

OL Al Netter
OL Wayne Tribue
OL Kenny Wiggins
S Michael Thomas
LB Nate Stupar
P Anthony Santella

Here are the incoming rookies:

S Eric Reid (1st)
DL *Cornelius "Tank" Carradine (2nd)
TE Vance McDonald (2nd)
OLB Corey Lemonier (3rd)
WR Quinton Patton (4th)
RB *Marcus Lattimore (4th)
DL Quinton Dial (5th)
LB Nick Moody (6th)
QB/PR B.J. Daniels (7th)
OT Carter Bykowski (7th)
CB Marcus Cooper (7th)

C Sherman Carter, Tennessee State
FB Alex Debniak, Stanford
HB, TE MarQueis Gray, Minnesota
RB D.J. Harper, Boise State
WR Chuck Jacobs, Utah State
T *Luke Marquardt, Azusa Pacific
LS Kevin McDermott, UCLA
CB Darryl Morris, Texas State
DL Lawrence Okoye, no college
G Patrick Omameh, Michigan
NT Mike Purcell, Wyoming
CB Lowell Rose, Tulsa

The full list of tryout players is unknown at this point, although it includes quarterback Nate Montana, the son of hall-of-fame 49ers quarterback Joe Montana.

* Carradine, Lattimore and Marquardt will not be taking part in the minicamp due to injuries.
