49ers undrafted free agent tracker 2016: All the signings and rumors

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers have wrapped up the 2016 NFL Draft, and will now begin signing undrafted free agents. Rumors will fly fast and furious, so we are tracking them all here.

The 2016 NFL is wrapping up, and with the San Francisco 49ers just about wrapped up with their draft picks, the time now turns to undrafted free agency. Anything goes as undrafted players look for jobs, and teams look to fill out their rosters. Trent Baalke, Chip Kelly, and the coaching staff and scouts are likely already on the phone with undrafted college players. As soon as the draft ends, there is a swarm for every notable player on the market, and the 49ers will have some spots to fill. We'll be tracking all the rumors here.

Important note: These names are not official yet. This time is notorious for players deciding on one team and then choosing another or a reporter getting the UDFA signing wrong or confusing a rookie minicamp invite for an actual signing. We'll collect all the rumors here and the 49ers will confirm them at some point in the next week or so.

Most of these undrafted signings will not make the 53-man roster, but we all know it provides a chance for Kory Sheets Was Our Future mentality. The 49ers have worked their share of UDFAs into their roster in recent years. On the current roster, we're talking about guys like Tramaine Brock, Ian Williams, Tony Jerod-Eddie, L.J. McCray, DeAndrew White, and Dylan Thompson. The latter two did not play much (or at all in Thompson's case), but they made the roster at one point or another.

Here's last year's list of UDFA signings. DeAndrew White and Dylan Thompson both spent time on the 53-man roster. OLB Marcus Rush and wide receivers DiAndre Campbell and Dres Anderson will all be competing for roster spots this fall after spending time on either the practice squad or injured reserve.

I'll be posting tweets as they appear, but I have also dropped in a widget featuring the 49ers beat writer Twitter list. There should be plenty of info there.
