"You've got to get that guy!": Nick Bosa pushed for 49ers to acquire this rookie

The San Francisco 49ers officially announced the signings of five undrafted rookies. Four had already been reported on May 1. The other, offensive lineman Alfredo Gutierrez, was assigned to the 49ers as part of the NFL's International Player Pathway program, which had also already been reported. San Francisco didn't draft a linebacker this year. In the sixth round, the team considered doing so but opted to select running back Elijah Mitchell out of Louisiana. Even DeMeco Ryans, the team's defensive coordinator, advised the team to draft Mitchell over a linebacker. "Well, you should take this guy. He's pretty good," Ryans said, referring to Mitchell,

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expects to get defensive end Nick Bosa back in the lineup this season. The young pass rusher missed most of last season, his second in the NFL, after suffering a torn ACL during Week 2. It wasn't the only injury the team endured in 2020, but it may have been one of the most impactful — at least, on defense. Bosa has been showing off videos of his progress rehabbing from the devastating injury, and the 23-year-old defender looks on track to return to full strength. And we all remember what Bosa was at full strength. He was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year after a 2019 campaign that included nine regular-season sacks

49ers CB Jason Verrett also changing his jersey number

Add San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett to the list of players changing their jersey numbers this offseason. On April 21, the NFL approved a proposal that relaxes the jersey number rules of certain position groups, opening the door for wide receivers, defensive backs, and some others to wear single-digit numbers. On Monday, safety Jaquiski Tartt revealed that he is switching from No. 29 to No. 26. Of course, that doesn't really fall into the rule change. Verrett, however, is switching from No. 22 to No. 2, the number he wore at TCU. It will be his second number change since joining the 49ers in 2019. His initial number was 27.
