NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Chicago Bears Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Bay Area will officially be a one NFL team region. The Oakland Raiders received the votes needed to begin relocating to Las Vegas. That leaves the San Francisco 49ers as the only NFL team in the Bay Area. The 49ers voted yes on the Raiders’ relocation vote, which gives the team a bigger market when the Raiders do move. GM John Lynch began the campaign to win over Oakland Raiders fans to change their allegiance to the 49ers. He sent an invitation to the Oakland fans to jump onto the 49ers train.

The 49ers signed one of their own free agents on Monday. RB DuJuan Harris signed a 1 year deal to stay with the team. He started one game and appeared in 10 games last year. In his only start in place of Carlos Hyde, he had a big game. He ran for 59 yards on 10 carries and caught 5 passes for 83 yards. One of those catches was a 47 yard touchdown. Harris played behind Carlos Hyde and Shaun Draughn. He will be expected to battle for a spot on the roster and the right to back up Carlos Hyde.

The 49ers could also draft a running back to add to the Harris, Mike Davis, and Raheem Mostert competition. Leonard Fournette has been a popular guess for the 49ers #2 pick in the draft. Drafting a running back with the 2nd overall pick seems like a stretch, even with Leonard being an amazing talent. A middle round RB selection seems more likely in this RB heavy draft.
