With the 2016 NFL Draft now complete, the San Francisco 49ers turn their focus on signing undrafted free agents. Below is a running tally of the undrafted players that the team has either signed or reportedly will sign.

OLB Kevin Anderson, Stanford

Per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. No analysis available.

NT Alex Balducci, Oregon

NFL.com Analysis: Balducci has some size, but doesn't have play with the functional strength and technique to match his frame as an interior lineman. Unless he improves his hand usage and is able to play with better instincts to cover up for his marginal athleticism, he will have a difficult time getting very far in camp.

S Jered Bell, Colorado

Per Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre. No analysis available.



WR Devon Cajuste, Stanford

NFL.com Analysis: If this evaluation were purely as a receiving prospect, the draft grade would be lower; however, Cajuste might carry a higher grade as an H­-back or tight end which are the two positions where he should project. Cajuste is a willing blocker who also carries some third down and goal line value as a pass catcher which is why we are projecting him as an H-­back or move tight end.

DL Demetrius Cherry, Arizona State

Per Cherry on Twitter. No analysis available.

DE Jay Fanaika, Utah

NFL.com Analysis: Will be 24 years old when NFL training camps begin and appears to be a player without a go­-to play strength or an obvious NFL position. Fanaika doesn't have the twitch or overall talent to be a dangerous NFL pass rusher, but he has some power at the point of attack and might be able to make a team looking for a strong base end who can set the edge. Regardless, it may be in his best interest to slim down to where he was in 2014 when he was more disruptive.


DE Lenny Jones, Nevada

Per Ben Ross of KOLO-TV. No analysis available.

DT Darren Lake, Alabama

CBS Sports Profile: A two-year letterman at nose tackle for Alabama ... backed up Brandon Ivory a season ago and will battle for an increased role along the Crimson Tide defensive front ... has played in 21 career games at the Capstone with 18 total tackles and one tackle for loss.


K John Lunsford, Liberty

NFL.com Analysis: Big legs are nice, but if Lunsford can't make field goals at a substantially higher clip, his dreams of being an NFL kicker are unlikely to be realized unless he is to be considered a kickoff and long field goal specialist.


OG Blake Muir, Baylor

Per Cam Inman of the Mercury News. No analysis available.

OL Norman Price, Southern Mississippi

Optimum Scouting: Yet another C-USA JuCo find. Price struggled with weight and conditioning issues last season (had to drop 20 lbs to get to 335) but he is an impressive athlete with very good lateral movement for his size and will start at right tackle for the Golden Eagles this season.

WR Bryce Treggs, Cal

No analysis available.
