General manager Trent Baalke has also rounded up seven undrafted free agents from both powerhouse schools and relative unknowns, per 49ers.com. Undrafted free agents provide exceptional value for teams every year, bringing underrated and overlooked talent with chips on their shoulders.
Most of these players will not survive the final cuts, but recent history has offered hope for the undervalued in San Francisco.
According to David Fucillo of Niners Nation, 11 undrafted free agents have reached the 49ers' active roster over the last four years. In addition, the undrafted ranks have also produced current starters in guard Alex Boone and cornerback Tramaine Brock.
Determining the path to the active roster is not an exact science when you have to take both the player and the current roster into consideration. As seven undrafted free agents battle for spots on the final roster, only a select few will stick around to make an extended appearance in red and gold.
