The San Francisco 49ers added a dozen rookies to their roster over the course of the 2014 NFL Draft. Their dreams came true as all of their hard work has finally led them to a chance at an NFL career.
Many of the young players are on Twitter and below are their reactions to being drafted by San Francisco. Some were immediate reactions and others occurred later. Of course, you can follow them and every other current 49ers player on our Niner Tweets page.

Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina (@BruceEllington)
Ellington's post is interesting. It was a paid advertisement brought to you by Verizon and featured video of him receiving his call from the 49ers alerting him that he was being drafted.
