Cutdown Blog: NFC West

2013-Div-Cutdown-Blog-NFCWIt’s not as flashy as it’s free agency brother, but “cutday” may be the most frantic for all NFL front offices.

There isn’t another time of the year where they have to be so reactive to every move every team is making, ready to pounce on possible talents who might improve their roster or be worth developing on their practice squad.

To help you keep up to date we’re going to be providing details on all the moves in each divisional page. Keep coming back for each and every player released with stats, snaps and grades on all of them.

Of course this might not be enough for you, in which case you’ll need yourself a PFF Premium Membership.

Arizona Cardinals

Dan Buckner, WR: Was targeted just four times and though he caught two of them, that was never enough to challenge players involved far more.

Mike Thomas, WR: They picked him up on waivers to see what he had to offer, and ultimately decided it wasn’t much. Played 27 snaps and did catch a touchdown, but Thomas now finds himself looking for his third team in three weeks.

Charles Hawkins, WR: Played well enough in preseason (+2.5) that he won’t be out of work for long. A prime practice squad candidate, he’s got some real playmaking ability about him but needs to cut down on the errors (two drops and one fumble).

Kerry Taylor, WR:

Alex Gottlieb, TE:

Richard Quinn, TE:

Chilo Rachal, OL:

Adam Bice, OL:

Senio Kelemete, OL:

Jamaal Johnson-Webb, OL:

David Carter, DL:

Padric Scott, DL:

Reggie Walker, LB:

Zack Nash, LB:

Colin Parker, LB:

Kenny Rowe, LB:

Curtis Taylor, DB:

Jonathon Amaya, DB:


San Francisco 49ers

Seneca Wallace, QB:

Jewel Hampton, RB:

Jason Schelper, FB:

Austin Collie, WR: Probably time to start wondering “what if” when it comes to Collie, who just isn’t the player he once was. Found himself well down the depth chart, where catching 5-of-8 balls just wasn’t enough.

Chad Hall, WR: Tried to get him some work on defense to improve his versatility but ultimately decided the team were better off without. Caught 6 of the 12 balls thrown his way but struggled to make anything happen after the catch.

Chuck Jacobs, WR:

Kassim Osgood, WR:

Lavelle Hawkins, WR:

Marqueis Gray, TE:

Wayne Tribue, OL:

Carter Bykowski, OL:

Kenny Wiggins, OL:

Patrick Omameh, OL:

Mike Purcell, DL:

Joe Holland, LB:

Travis Johnson, LB:

Daryl Morris, DB:

Michael Thomas, DB:

Marcus Cooper, DB:

Trent Robinson, DB:

Brian Lennings, LS:


Seattle Seahawks

Brady Quinn, QB:

Michael Robinson, FB: An illness limited Robinson to just 12 preseason snaps and that was enough for Spencer Ware to sneak in and steal his job. Ware isn’t the blocker Robinson is but he does run the ball well. It’s an intriguing development and it will be interesting to see where Robinson lands up (and how quickly).

Arceto Clark, WR:

Bryan Walters, WR:

Chris Harper, WR:

Phil Bates, WR:

Cooper Helfet, TE:

Darren Fells, TE:

Sean McGrath, TE:

Jared Smith, OL:

Rishaw Johnson, OL:

Ryan Seymour, OL:

Clinton McDonald, DL:

Dewayne Cherrington, DL:

Jaye Howard, DL:

Michael Brooks, DL:

Sealver Siliga, DL:

Ty Powell, LB:

DeShawn Shead, DB:

Ron Parker, DB:

Winston Guy, DB:

Antoine Winfield, DB:


St Louis Rams

Austin Davis, QB: Preseason is an audition and Davis largely fluffed his lines in trying to compete and unseat Kellen Clemens. Would complete more passes (51.9%) and throw less picks than Clemens but that didn’t tell the whole story as Clemens would finish with a +3.2 grade and Davis a mere -2.3.

Eric Stevens, FB:

Emory Blake, WR: With the team so deep at receiver, Blake eliminated any chance of making the roster with his -2.6 worth performance.

Nick Johnson, WR: Saw 77 snaps and ran 49 routes, but averaged just 1.16 yards per route and it wasn’t enough to make any of the established boys sweat.

Justin Veltung, WR: When you average 0.61 yards per route run it’s safe to say you’re not a big part of your teams immediate future.

Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE:

Zach Potter, TE:

D.J. Young, OL:

Ryan Lee, OL:

Sean Hooey, OL:

Ty Nsekhe, OL:

Sammy Brown, DL:

Garrett Goebel, DL:

Mason Brodine, DL:

R.J. Washington, DL:

Josh Hull, LB:

Cody Davis, DB:

Rashard Hall, DB:

Darren Woodward, DB:

Andre Martin, DB:

Drew Thomas, DB:

    49ers made a big mistake in letting Hawkins walk for Baldwin.

    • Orioles_TarHeels_Niners

      Hawkins is a show boating clown. The plays he made were against players who won’t be in the NFL. Baldwin is a physical freak with much more upside that Hawkins who could really help this team in the redzone given his size.

    • Colin William Weaver

      Question, who was coaching Hawkins and DeSean Jackson at Cal? I’m assuming nobody?
