Tracking 49ers’ 2023 undrafted free agent contract signing originally appeared nbc sports birea
The 49ers didn’t have a first or second round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, but still managed to add nine players to their roster.
General manager John Lynch used three third-round picks, two fifth-round picks, one sixth-round pick and three seventh-round picks to bolster the depth on the 49ers’ roster.
San Francisco had no obvious needs, so Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan strengthened the secondary, tight-end tackle and linebacker group, adding a kicker, a defensive end and a wide receiver.
Here are the nine players the 49ers drafted during the three-day event in Kansas City:
third round – Number 87 Overall: Security G Iyer Brown, Penn State
third round –number 99 overall: kicker jake moody, Michigan
third round –Number 101 Overall: tight end cameron latu, Alabama
fifth round – Number 155 Overall: Cornerback Darrell Lutter, South Alabama
fifth round –Number 173 Overall: Defensive End Robert Beal, Georgia
sixth round – Number 216 Overall: Linebacker Dee Winters, TCU
seventh round –Number 247 Overall: tight end brayden willis, oklahoma
seventh round – Number 253 Overall: Wide receiver Ronnie Bell, Michigan
seventh round – Number 255 Overall: linebacker Jalen Graham, Purdue
Now that the 49ers have those nine players, it is time to sign undrafted free agents, which began almost immediately after the draft ended.
Here are the players associated with the 49ers:
Shepherd University offensive lineman Joey Fisher
Rutgers defensive back Avery Young
UTEP running back Ronald Awatt
North Dakota State defensive lineman Spencer Wedge
