Best remaining NFL free agents through the first weekend

Will the 49ers land any of these guys?

NFL free agency is wrapping up its first weekend, and we have quickly moved into the slog that comes after the big names sign. The San Francisco 49ers do not have many additions thus far, and cap space still to spend. I do think they'll sign some free agents if at least for some depth and camp competition. We've heard them connected to Ted Larsen and Russell Okung, and there has been some chatter about a potential trade for De'Anthony Thomas.

While we wait for more news in the Colin Kaepernick saga, I thought I'd put together a list of the best free agents still on the market. The first phase of free agency wrapped up quickly, and I'd say we got through the second phase as well. We're into the slog of veterans looking to land a job before the draft. That will be followed by the summer free agents heading into training camp.

Here are the top 20 remaining free agents, pulled from's list of the top 99 heading into free agency. If you have any other free agent lists of note, drop a link in the comments. Rotoworld had a top 50 list of their own a few days ago, but they have not updated it.
