49ers assign jersey numbers to 2016 rookie class

May 9, 2016 at 2:42 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced jersey numbers for the team's 2016 rookie class. The team completed their rookie minicamp over the weekend, which allowed the 49ers' new coaching staff to evaluate the rookies as a unit for the first time.

As Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee stated over the weekend, numbers for many of these players may be temporary and subject to change once the roster is reduced to 53 spots. However, they will be worn for the remainder of the team's offseason.

As noted by 49ers.com, the one player who's number is safe is first-round selection DeForest Buckner. He will remain number 99, so it is safe for fans to order his jersey.

Analyst was 'stunned' Patrick Willis wasn't part of 2020 Hall of Fame class, feels voters will make him wait longer

There were some San Francisco 49ers fans who were surprised to see one name noticeably omitted from the Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists when the list of 15 was revealed on January 2. Much to their disappointment, former linebacker Patrick Willis didn't make the cut. There was much debate whether or not Willis' shortened career would hinder his chances of being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. He'll probably get in there — eventually. But for now, he'll have to wait. The 49ers made Willis the No. 11 overall draft pick in 2007, and he spent eight seasons with San Francisco before retiring after the 2014 season.

In fact, it was when Woerner got a little bored with the passing reps. Kittle joined the Pardon My Take podcast this week and shared the exact moment when he knew he and Woerner were going to work well together. "I'm excited. Charlie's a good dude," Kittle shared. "We were actually running routes together, and he was like, 'Hey, this passing stuff is kind of boring. When are we going to start talking about run game?' "And I was like, 'You're my guy. I needed
