We're less-than a week away from the San Francisco 49ers' 2012 debut against the always-tough Green Bay Packers. We've taken a look at both the offense and the defense when it comes to the final 53-man roster, but what of the depth chart? The team released the official depth chart to the media on Tuesday and there's some good information to be gleaned from it.
For one, Demarcus Dobbs is listed as the third string tight end and the backup at right defensive tackle (end). So that's cool for him and all. There are no backup offensive tackles listed on the depth chart, which likely means Alex Boone would flip over from right guard if it's really needed. Some other notes include the fact that Perrish Cox passed up Tramaine Brock on the cornerback depth chart, and that C.J. Spillman is the main backup to Dashon Goldson.
We'll talk a bit more about the depth chart over the coming days as the 49ers prepare for their debut, but first, let's get it listed below.
