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.

Opinion: 49ers need to free Jimmy Gunslinger

By JD Salazar
Sep 26

The 49ers have a fatal flaw. It lurked underneath a well-oiled running game until a dynamic Chiefs team found it in 2019. It toyed with the Niners as they struggled to stay afloat in a doomed 2020 season. And last year, a 49ers team shooting for the moon nearly failed to launch because of it. They came close to overcoming it, but like the inexorable pull of gravity, one simple truth brought them crashing back to earth: Shanahan is holding back his quarterbacks. It's the sixth year under head coach Kyle Shanahan, the architect of an offense that is currently ranked 22nd in the league in Offensive DVOA. He



49ers Notebook: Talanoa Hufanga's improvement; Brian Griese's impact; DJ Jones talks 49ers; Why is Jimmy G so loud?

Today marked another day of media rounds for the San Francisco 49ers, with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, and run game coordinator/offensive line coach Chris Foerster being among those to speak to reporters in Santa Clara. Among the topics discussed in those media sessions were the improvement of safety Talanoa Hufanga, the impact of new quarterbacks coach Brian Griese, and where Jimmy Garoppolo gets his vocal power from. There were also some quotes of note to come from outside 49ers facilities, including some thoughts from former 49ers defensive tackle D.J. Jones as he gets set to face his former team when the 49ers face the Broncos in Denver on Sunday night. Here's a rundown of those topics and more in this version of 49ers



49ers Notebook: The Trent Williams effect; Shanahan on his decision to decline key penalty; A familiar face haunts 49ers

By Kirk Larrabee
Sep 26

The sooner everyone moves on from the 49ers' dreadful 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night the better. But first, let's tie up some loose ends to come from Sunday's postgame interviews. Much of the postgame discussion surrounded the performance of the 49ers' offense, which was poor enough to squander a defensive effort that held the Broncos' offense to just nine points. But there was also some honesty regarding the loss of left tackle Trent Williams, some insight from head coach Kyle Shanahan on why he declined an important first half penalty, and much more. Let's get into a roundup of some of Sunday's postgame comments in this edition of 49ers Notebook. George Kittle's honesty on the loss of Trent Williams and the performance of the



49ers vs. Broncos defensive grades: Another defensive masterclass ruined for the 49ers

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers suffered another head-scratching loss, this time to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football by the score of 11-10, in a game where the defensive brilliance could not overcome the offensive woes. Here are the defensive grades for the 49ers in Week 3: Defensive Line: A About 90 minutes prior to game time, reports surfaced that the 49ers would be without star defensive tackle Arik Armstead, potentially making the matchup even tougher, especially with San Francisco facing off against the strong running back duo of Javonte Williams and
