The San Francisco 49ers have added a couple more names to their rookie UDFA signings Tuesday evening. The team announced the signings of Washington offensive lineman Coleman Shelton and North Texas running back Jeff Wilson.
Shelton will add some more competition to the offensive line which has both guard spots seemingly up for grabs while Wilson will come in to compete with what has become a deep running backs group.
