While the Seattle Seahawks get all the credit for bing drag gurus thanks to their recent history, the San Francisco 49ers may be the smartest drafting front office in the entire league, as they consistently find ways to make their picks either into stud players or into multiple picks over multiple years.
Their work during the draft is impressive, but they also do work beyond the draft when it comes to mining the undrafted market for hidden talent that even they overlooked initially. Here’s a look at the undrafted free agents the Niners went after following the draft:
- Kory Faulkner QB Southern Illinois
- Morgan Breslin LB USC
- LJ McCray S Catawba
- Shayne Skov LB Stanford
- Asante Cleveland TE Miami
- Dillon Farrell C New Mexico
- Fou Fonoti OT Michigan State
Not everyone is going to end up being signed, as some are just going to be tryouts and nothing else. But they’re all names to keep an eye on as you never know who will pop.
