Sakamoto: 49ers Sign 9 of 11 Draft Picks, 12 Undrafted Rookie Free-Agents


The San Francisco 49ers made a wave of transactions this afternoon starting with the release of four players. A move that was necessary, the 49ers parted ways with OG Jordan Devey, RB Kendall Gaskins, K Corey Acosta, and QB Dylan Thompson.

The move paved the way for roster spots allowing the team to sign nine of their 11 draft picks.

In addition to their 2016 Draft class, the team also announced the signing of 12 UDFA’s. Which UDFA do you believe has the best chance to make the 53-man roster? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below and start a discussion!
