According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers have signed undrafted free agent Jermaine Whitehead, the safety from Auburn.

During the 2014 season, Whitehead had six interceptions for Auburn, including four after returning from his four-game suspension and two games of special teams only for his verbal altercation with safeties coach Charlie Harbison.

The 49ers have also signed the following undrafted free agents:

South Carolina QB Dylan Thompson
Michigan State DL Marcus Rush
Utah WR Dres Anderson
Auburn OL Patrick Miller
Duke WR Issac Blakeney
