49ers’ RB Jarryd Hayne Makes 53-Man Roster, Darnell Dockett Cut

rose

The San Francisco 49ers started their second wave of cuts in order to get down to the 53-man roster limit as G/C Joe Looney, OL Patrick Miller, WR Isaac Blakeney, DE Darnell Dockett, OLB Philip Wheeler, and SS Craig Dahl were all released yesterday.


Moves that were somewhat of a head scratcher, considering the team signed Dockett to help cope with the loss of DE Justin Smith, it was confusing to many as to why the team would let Dockett go.

However, he is no longer with the team, leaving the door open for rookie first-round pick (No. 17) DE Arik Armstead and third-year player DE Tank Carradine to fulfill that role.

Dahl was already on his way out, as I predicted him to be cut, due to the outstanding special-teams play of FS L.J. McCray and rookie second-round pick SS Jaquiski Tartt, so no surprise there.

And then the final cuts came this afternoon as the team released 14 players including QB Dylan Thompson, RB Kendall GaskinsWR DiAndre Campbell, TE Xavier GrimbleG/C Dillon Farrell, G Andrew Tiller, OL Justin Renfrow, DE Marcus Rush, NT Garrison Smith, DE Kaleb Ramsey, ILB Nick Moody, CB Leon McFadden, CB Marcus Cromartie, and S Jermaine Whitehead.

In addition the team placed RB Kendall Hunter and TE Busta Anderson on the injured reserve.

So how did I fare when I predicted the 53-man roster last week? While I wasn’t 100 percent on my picks, it wasn’t all bad as I finished 48 out of 53. So without further ado, your 2015 San Francisco 49ers are…
