4 Undrafted San Francisco 49ers Players Who Could Prove to Be Gems

The San Francisco 49ers had one of the most impressive hauls in the 2014 NFL Draft, signing a total of 12 new players to their roster.

Additionally, San Francisco also added seven undrafted free agents following the end of the draft, although USC linebacker Morgan Breslin has since been waived

Even with Breslin's departure from the team, there is still an array of UDFAs on the Niners' books who will be hoping to forget the disappointment of not being selected and make enough of an impression in the offseason to nail down a spot on the permanent 53-man roster.

And the current crop of UDFAs can take plenty of inspiration from a number of 49er team-mates who have gone on to make an impact for San Francisco despite going undrafted.

Tramaine Brock has established himself as a starting cornerback, and guard Alex Boone, per Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, is now holding out for a new contract after becoming a key part of the 49ers' offense.

Defensive lineman Tony Jerod-Eddie and linebackers Dan Skuta and Michael Wilhoite all made contributions in rotation in the 2013 season.

Furthermore, Kassim Osgood, C.J. Spillman and Bubba Ventrone, all of whom went undrafted, have been impact players on special teams for San Francisco.

But which players from the 2014 group of UDFAs have the potential to earn a role for themselves on the San Francisco team? Here I look at four undrafted free agents who are best placed to make it in the NFL.
