The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that they have signed nine of their 11 drafted rookie class, per Chris Biderman of Niners Wire. The only rookies that remain unsigned are first-round selection Joshua Garnett, a guard out of Stanford, and third-round selection Will Redmond, a cornerback out of Mississippi State.


The signing of first round selection DeForest Buckner was first reported earlier today by Rand Getlin of NFL Network.
