Examining the San Francisco 49ers' roster:

QUARTERBACKS (2)
Gabbert solidified his spot with Sunday's performance.

RUNNING BACKS (5)

Hey, if Ronnie Lott Tweets that "Carlos Hyde looks like the real deal," he must be, right?

WIDE RECEIVERS (6)

Patton appears to be the No. 3 wideout...for now.

TIGHT ENDS (3)

The first 49ers player to catch a TD pass in Levi's Stadium history? Paging Vance McDonald.

OFFENSIVE LINE (8)

Lots of moving parts here with Boone still holding out and Adam Snyder getting first-team reps at right guard after Looney, and Martin suffering a knee injury Sunday.

DEFENSIVE LINE (8)
Glenn Dorsey a prime candidate for the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.

LINEBACKERS (8)

Willis made his preseason debut Sunday and combined with Wilhoite on a key 4th-and-1 stoppage inside the 49ers' 10-yard line.

CORNERBACKS (6)

Should the corners take most of the heat for Philip Rivers completing nine of 10 passes against the 49ers' first-team defense?

SAFETIES (4)

Ward, a hybrid safety-corner in the nickel defense, had an acrobatic interception and is an excitable player for the 49ers' secondary.

SPECIALISTS (3):

The stink eye Dawson gave the Levi's Stadium sod after slipping on a successful PAT was worth the price of admission.
