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.

'I went to sleep happy': Frank Gore praises Elijah Mitchell, others in 49ers' rout of Rams

Frank Gore still watches San Francisco 49ers games. Last night, he was watching when his former team shockingly dismantled the revamped Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium. This morning, Gore joined KNBR and shared his thoughts on some of the 49ers' star players, including the rookie running back. "They played physical," Gore said on the Murph & Mac show. "I liked the way they played the game last night. I like that young kid, [Elijah Mitchell]. ... He's a good back. He's got a bright future. Just tell him to keep working. Just keep his head down, keep working." San Francisco rushed the football 44 times for 156 yards. Mitchell had 27 carries for 91 yards. The rookie leads the team with 560 rushing yards this season.

49ers place DT Darrion Daniels on IR, sign DE Chris Slayton to the practice squad

According to the NFL transaction wire, the San Francisco 49ers have placed practice squad defensive tackle Darrion Daniels on injured reserve. He suffered an injury on Wednesday. "He hurt himself dancing during warmups at practice Wednesday," wrote David Lombardi of The Athletic. The Niners signed defensive end Chris Slayton, 25, to take Daniels' spot on the practice squad. The New York Giants made Slayton (6-4, 307) a seventh-round selection out of Syracuse in 2019. He also spent time with the Buffalo Bills, Atlanta Falcons, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers released Slayton from their practice squad on November



Could Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers face a second rebuild this off-season?

By Chris Beno
Nov 15

As the 2021 season reaches the halfway point, one thing is for sure: there is still a lot of football left. Even with the San Francisco 49ers sitting at 3-5, they still (thanks to an underperforming NFC) have a legitimate shot at getting to the playoffs this year. But it's not too early to start thinking about the future. If the season were to end now, head coach Kyle Shanahan would be coming off his fourth losing season in five years. The 49ers would also have over 30 players entering free agency, no first-round draft pick in 2022, and appear to be on the brink of a second rebuild under the current front office. Just for fun, let's begin thinking about what this off-season could look like for the 49ers. How this season wraps up will strongly determine the approach this
