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.

49ers receiver feels Brandon Aiyuk is on the cusp of being 'unguardable'

The San Francisco 49ers may have a punishing duo of starting wide receivers heading into 2021 thanks to a couple of draft picks over the past two years that appear ready to pay off. The team selected Deebo Samuel in the second round in 2019 and then Brandon Aiyuk in the first round a year later. Both could be gearing up for breakout NFL campaigns. Aiyuk hauled in 60 receptions for 748 yards and five receiving touchdowns as a rookie. He also carried the football six times for 77 yards and two more scores. His receiving yards total ranks third all-time in franchise history for a rookie while his receptions rank second all-time, and his receiving touchdowns tie for second among first-year players. Only Deebo Samuel and Jerry Rice had more receiving yards as 49ers

I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
