The San Francisco 49ers rookie signings are officially underway as fifth-round pick (No. 150) OLB Aaron Lynch and seventh-round pick (No. 243) DT Kaleb Ramsey agreed to terms on a four-year contract.
Lynch, who has first-round talent but fell to the fifth-round due to character concerns, could become a steal with the right coaching, people, and peers behind him. Lynch played one season at USF last year and started 10 games while recording 29 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and five sacks. Projected to be a 3-4 outside linebacker, do not be surprised if Lynch turns some heads in rookie camp as he definitely has the talent to be a pass-rush specialist.
Ramsey, a seventh-round draft choice will be looking to fight off NT Ian Williams, NT Mike Purcell, and NT Quinton Dial. A tough task as considering those players have likely cemented themselves on the 53-man roster or practice squad, Ramsey will need to show he’s more than a one-gap player if he hopes to land a roster spot.
