The San Francisco 49ers have announced the release of veteran cornerback Isaiah Oliver. While he initially saw significant defensive snaps early in the 2023 season, his playing time dwindled during the latter half of the schedule.

The move saves the 49ers $2.4 million in salary cap space while creating $1.46 million in dead money, per OverTheCap.com. 49ers Communications provided the following rundown.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round.
