The San Francisco 49ers made nine undrafted free agency signings official Tuesday morning. The team announced the addition of the following players, which brings their roster to 89 players:

QB Dylan Thompson, South Carolina
WR Dres Anderson, Utah
WR Issac Blakeney, Duke
WR DiAndre Campbell, Washington
WR Darius Davis, Henderson State
WR DeAndrew White, Alabama
OL Patrick Miller, Auburn
OLB/DE Marcus Rush, Michigan State
S Jermaine Whitehead, Auburn

The Whitehead signing is the only one we did not know about prior to today. Considering the 49ers drafted one defensive back last weekend, it makes sense to add another body to the mix.

The 49ers still have one roster spot available. They will bring in players for tryouts at their rookie minicamp in two weekends, which could provide that 90th person. Inside linebacker Lance Briggs remains on the market as well, so we could see him show up.

Here is the full roster following these signings. Below that are bios on each UDFA additionplayer.
