The two preseason games left on the 49ers schedule will carry a lot of weight in how the final roster spots are determined. Players will do everything in their power to avoid heaing, "Coach wants to see you, bring your iPad (playbook)."

The first set of cuts is set to take place on Aug. 27 (90 to 75 players) and the final cuts will happen on Aug. 31 (75 to 53). With those decisions looming, Matt Maiocco of makes a prediction on who will stick on San Francisco's roster.

One of the more interesting aspects of Maiocco's prediction is the sight of new quarterback Seneca Wallace making the team over Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien.

Maiocco also has one undrafted rookie making the team, tight end MarQueis Gray.
