May 12, 2014 at 11:42 AM0


The San Francisco 49ers added a dozen rookies to their roster over the course of the 2014 NFL Draft. Their dreams came true as all of their hard work has finally led them to a chance at an NFL career.

Many of the young players are on Twitter and below are their reactions to being drafted by San Francisco. Some were immediate reactions and others occurred later. Of course, you can follow them and every other current 49ers player on our Niner Tweets page.

Ellington's post is interesting. It was a paid advertisement brought to you by Verizon and featured video of him receiving his call from the 49ers alerting him that he was being drafted.

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens has some insight on the situation between the San Francisco 49ers and their current wide receiver star, Deebo Samuel. Owens recently told NBC LX that he spoke with Samuel but wasn't willing to disclose the details of that conversation. Owens did share the following, though, courtesy of NBC Sports Bay Area. "I've talked to him personally. I know what's going on," Owens said before his Fan Controlled Football game over the weekend. "I know what transpired.

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games.

Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule

By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not
