Stevie Johnson, 49ers draft picks, and UDFAs celebrate on Twitter, Instagram

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers welcomed as many as 20 players to the roster over the last few days. We take a look at what some of them had to say on social media.

The San Francisco 49ers added 13 players to their roster over the last three days as they drafted 12 players, and acquired Stevie Johnson via trade. They are also just about done adding in upwards of seven undrafted free agents to the roster.

For many of the players, after celebrating with family, social media is one of the first places they hit to celebrate this momentous occasion in their life. I thought I'd take a look at what they all had to say on social media after they were selected. This also gives me a chance to provide a rundown of all the new 49ers players on Twitter. I've added them to the 49ers player list I have on the @NinersNation account. Players not on Twitter include Chris Borland, Brandon Thomas, Aaron Lynch (might have previously been @tHa_Killa_19, but hasn't tweeted in 2 years), Kenneth Acker, Kaleb Ramsey, Morgan Breslin, LJ McCray
