Hunter, Jones, Person and Holcomb all fall into the category of players that can earn additional fourth year month through the Proven Performance Escalator, which can raise the last year's salary to the right-of-first-refusal amount that year. Of those four I'd imagine Hunter is probably the most likely to reach the 35% playing time figure. For Colin Jones, he will spend most of his time on special teams so I'm curious if that will be sufficient to get him to the number.

We'll have plenty more on the 49ers draft picks in the coming days and weeks.
