Good morning. We are just over a month until the NFL Draft gets underway. Things get started on April 25th so Monday can be the day we start counting down the days.

Free agency isn’t a wrap, but the 49ers are slowing down as far as splash signings. They worked out tight end Chris Gragg Friday, whom has been out of football for a year, and that won’t be the last workout they do before the draft. Someone pointed out in the comments they are far away from putting this 90-man training camp roster together, so they will need bodies of some sort. Some UDFAs, others guys like Cragg.

It might be slow, but just wait until after the draft when OTAs wrap up. That’s when it really gets dead. In the meantime, I’m sure we’ll hear about more workouts as time goes on.
