Unofficial depth charts are just that. Unofficial.
There is usually very little that can be inferred from an unofficial pre-season table, but released by the 49ers on Tuesday provides an updated insight into some of the most important positional struggles in the entire squad.  Backup Quarterback
The new unofficial depth chart lists & # 39; or & # 39; between CJ Beathard and Nick Mullens, which means it's a dead heat for the backup QB job, or at least what you'd expect.
Beathard Relieved by Jimmy Garoppolo, he prevailed against the Broncos in a 24:15 San Francisco victory on Monday night, completing five of eleven passes for 81
But while Mullens came to Beathard, he did not take his opportunity. Mullens completed two of three passes for 27 yards and the lonely 49ers' touchdown tonight, an absolutely perfect crossfade for Bourne in the far right corner of the end zone. It's also worth noting that Mullens has started San Francisco's first pre-season game.
Expect Garoppolo to play against the Chiefs on Saturday, if not all, in the first half of the 49ers' previous preseason match against the Chiefs. Keep an eye on who is taking over Jimmy G, as this may be the best indication of where Kyle Shanahan is heading.
Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis are still listed as starters. No surprise there. Together with Trent Taylor and the rookies Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd they are the absolute hurdles to make the list. For example, Bourne, Richie James Jr., Jordan Matthews, and others fight for a maximum of two, but probably only one point.
Based on the new unofficial depth map, Bourne and James seem to have the inner track to create the list as they are listed behind the starters. Hurd is listed behind James Jr., while Matthews and Samuel are listed behind Bourne.
James seems to double Taylor, but given that Taylor will miss the start of the season after breaking a bone in his foot, James could open up, especially given his ability to return.
Bourne's promise showed in his landing against the Broncos. But as beautiful as that catch was, his huge drop of Beathard's deep ball was just as bad. San Francisco could use more size than the receiver position that the 6-foot-1 Bourne offers. However, this also applies to the 6-foot-3-Matthews.
Matthews was only once directed against the Broncos and had no receptions, but he played 14 snapshots in special teams, including one in which he defeated the punt-returner for a two-yard defeat. Who makes the team the last recipient, must compete against special teams. Matthews has definitely not hurt his case in this area, and the proven stability he offers will most likely be in contrast to Bournes inconsistency.

In the updated unofficial depth chart, Adrian Colbert is considered a starter Although the injured Jimmie Ward is regarded as a starter after his return. Behind Colbert are all right Tarvarius Moore and Antone Exum Jr.
In two professional seasons Colbert has missed a total of 11 games injury. He suffered a thigh injury to the Broncos and was generally under-challenged during the training camp.
With Ward pausing and Colbert not taking up the job in his absence, the door opened for Moore, who was desperate for the 49ers. After being a cornerback in his rookie season, he had to go to safety. Moore has been safe in college and has made some promises there lately, but it's not a good sign that your best free security option has learned a different position year-round.
Moore is obviously a barrier to stay in the squad. Given Ward's lengthy injury history and the way the depth map currently looks, one wonders if San Francisco will regret not having acquired a single security in the free agent and draft classes at this position.
