The 49ers have waived a former first-round draft pick, according to reports.

Dre Kirkpatrick was signed by the San Francisco 49ers two months ago, following Jason Verrett’s devastating season-ending ACL injury.

Kirkpatrick, a former first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2012, will now be replaced by another cornerback in the ‘Niners’ latest roster move.

The 32-year-old veteran was waived by the 49ers at 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16.

The ‘Niners’ Kirkpatrick

For San Francisco, the Kirkpatrick experiment lasted only four games.

Kirkpatrick only had seven tackles, including six solo stops, according to Pro Football Reference.

In addition, he only had one sack.

Kirkpatrick did not have any stats in the Los Angeles Rams’ 31-10 rout on Monday Night Football on November 15.

In the CB Room, who’s still there?

Kirkpatrick was not in the lineup against the Rams, so four cornerbacks saw action.

Emmanuel Mosby and Josh Norman manned the left and right cornerback spots, respectively, as they faced a high-octane Rams offense that featured not only Cooper Kupp, the league’s only 1,000-yard receiver, but also Odell Beckham Jr., who was signed after being waived by the Cleveland Browns.

Mosby was targeted eight times and allowed five catches for 57 yards, so how did both starters fare?

When he was locked on the league’s leading wideout, he did manage to limit Kupp to just one catch of less than 10 yards.

Meanwhile, Norman, who was suffering from bad ribs, saw six Matthew…
