The San Francisco 49ers have had a lot of success finding undrafted gems in the John Lynch era. The Niners signed 10 undrafted free agents, and Niner Noise will be taking a look at them as well as their roster chances for 2020.

From San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens to cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to multiple running backs in the Niners rotation, the general manager John Lynch era has been one synonymous with undrafted free agents taking their chances.

And some of them making big splashes, too.

On NFL rosters, 30 percent of Week 1 teams consist of players who fell through the cracks in the NFL Draft. Teams can get an underrated advantage on their roster if they can hit on their undrafted acquisitions, and Lynch has a real knack of hitting some home runs in this less-than-discussed area of roster building.

Even this year, with the 49ers hoping to return to the Super Bowl and go one better, the team still wants to find some underrated prospects who can make the roster better and provide some quality depth and special teams ability.

This year, the Niners have signed 10 undrafted free agents to report to camp and try to win a roster spot. Most will be cut, some may make it on the practice squad and possibly a lucky few can stick around and make it onto the final roster.

In this article, we take a quick look at all 10 of the newest members of the San Francisco 49ers and see where they fit into the roster as well as their potential prospects.

So let’s take a look at the newest members of the red and gold; players who can make a notable impact even if they didn’t receive the attention given to the top-drafted prospects.
