Lock: Kyle Juszczyk, Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida, Tevin Coleman
Strong Bubble: Raheem Mostert
Weak Bubble: Jeff Wilson
Long Shot: Austin Walter
There isn’t a lot of drama here, especially towards the top of the running back corps. The only real question is who winds up being No. 1 on the depth chart, and the smart money would probably go on San Francisco’s free-agent pickup, Tevin Coleman.
Fellow running back Jerick McKinnon is expected back off the PUP list soon, and he might be inactive for the first few weeks of the regular season after finally recovering from his 2018 ACL tear.
One would guess Raheem Mostert makes the cut based off his standout special teams abilities. It’s likely he does. But given some of the 49ers’ other pressing roster decisions elsewhere, it’s a bit too much to list Mostert as a pure lock.
He’s still looking pretty good, though.
