Golden Nuggets: Rookies Signed And Ready To Go

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

Glenn Andrews-USA TODAY Sports

The Niners signed 9 out of their 10 draft picks and they are fully expected to sign their 1st round pick, Arik Armstead, when he shows up for camp. Just in the last 2 weeks, the team has signed 18 rookies to their roster. The rookies will have plenty of opportunities to make the team. This team has a few holes that could use some depth and the rookies brought in seem to have the skills necessary to make the team.

Out of the 18 rookies signed, 6 were wide receivers. Since Smelter will most likely be shelved this season, the 5 others look to bring some competition. With only Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin guaranteed spots, this position will probably be the most highly contested. The receiving corp is in need of some size, speed, and some hands. They were plagued with drops last season. The receiver position is the one position that seems to always be a need with the Niners. Is this group the one that finally solves that problem? I'm really hoping so.

The one last offseason question to be answered will hopefully be answered this week. The team and fans are awaiting word on if Justin Smith will be back this season or will he finally retire. I think he will be back. I think if he really wanted to retire, he would have done it awhile ago. Or it could be that I just hope he comes back. Having him come back gives us one more season to figure out what to do to replace him when he does retire. Come back for one more season Cowboy!
