With the wave of free agency signings made by the San Francisco 49ers, 11 total so far, this new roster is poised to look dramatically different in the 2017 NFL season. The new players certainly impact the 49ers’ draft decisions moving forward.
The offseason has been an active one at San Francisco 49ers headquarters in Santa Clara.
And rightfully so. The roster needed some serious revamping and the new regime has wasted no time in doing that.
There is still work to be done, but the new signings lay out a blueprint for the 49ers’ future. The players added are going to impact the team’s decision-making when it comes to the upcoming draft.
