Should Glen Coffee
follow through with retirement plans, the San Francisco 49ers
' backup running back would become the highest-drafted member of the NFL's 2009 draft class not on an 80-man roster.
Another 49ers player, Kentwan Balmer
, is already the highest-drafted member of the 2008 draft not on an 80-man roster. The 49ers placed him on the exempt/left squad list. Balmer does not count against the 80-man limit.
Coffee was the 74th overall choice in 2009.
