Even as the 49er front office ignored the secondary in the draft, they pretty much ignored it in the UDFA signing period as well.

They got:

  • Iowa Guard Ross Reynolds 
  • Arizona Safety Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles
  • Defensive Tackle Kevin Givens 
  • Wake Forest SS Cameron Glenn
  • Stephen F. Austin Long-Snapper Chris Wilkerson
  • UCLA QB Wilton Speight
  • Wyoming Tight End Tyree Mayfield 
  • West Georgia Wide Receiver Malik Henry 

So, they did get a couple secondary folks. Camp fodder, sure but once in a while one of these guys stick. TE Ross Dwelly was a UDFA that made it to the team last year. Wilton Speight may give us the impetus to trade the Beater, Cameron Glenn could stick as a special teamer and short-yardage SS. And Fowles is the same guy. Big hitter, special teamer, short yardage guy.

Tyree Mayfield is yet another RB/TE guy who could be an H back in goal line situations, much like our 3rd pick, Jalen Hurd. The rest? Wheeeee! Who knows? I’m still pissed we wasted a pick on a punter.

    It might turn out to be a wasted 4th rd pick but it can’t be as bad as Joe Williams.Special teams can win some game now ans again and it dude can kick like they say then it might just be a great pick. Just like everyone else we just go to wait and see. i don’t think we are done with UDFA’s just yet, we let go 5/6 players already so there is more room to be had I believe.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Hah! Some of the guys let go were last year’s UDFAs. The 49ers have waived the following seven players: WR Steven Dunbar Jr., CB Tarvarus McFadden, and S Terrell Williams Jr. were part of last year’s udfas.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Wishnowsky better be outstanding then. I get the feeling we jumped that high because NE wanted a punter? They got the snodfart guy with their 5th pick, but they are in a little better shape than us.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Lynch said Wish wouldn’t have been there in the 5th (which we didn’t have at the time anyway).

    • Winder says:

      I just hope that it’s bullshit. We really don’t need anymore division with this team. I think we’ve had enough for quite awhile.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Sounds like bullshit to me. The obvious comparison to Baalke/Harbaugh is that they never talked to each other and it was painfully obvious that they disliked each other. These guys hang out together and maybe have differences of opinion but that’s par for the course,

    Then again, if this season goes down the tubes, we may see changes anyway no matter how well they get along.

  5. rtfirefly says:

    Dude’s come out and said in his podcast weeks ago that he doesn’t like Lynch as GM and that he wishes he were GM. Objective journalist? Not hardly. Shit stirring rumor starter? Yep.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Who was it, RT? Kawakami? Or Cohn?

  7. alleykat69 says:

    Ross Reynolds Guard from Iowa I see making the team.Fits the zone scheme the 49ers like to use, has a nasty disposition about him can easily be a swing guard backup on this team..

    • rtfirefly says:

      There’s one opening guaranteed next year since they aren’t picking up Garnett’s option. Another Baalke Bust

  8. unca_chuck says:

    ESPN was showing the QBs the NE has drafted since they drafted Brady, and I had no ideal Kliff Kingsbury was an NFL QB.

  9. Winder says:

    Didn’t realize Trent Brown is a Raider now. Looks like they signed a bunch of the draft picks and 10 UDFA’s. The list is at 49ers home page.

  10. alleykat69 says:

    Former RT Anthony Davis is reinstating for the NFL, 49ers still own his rights.He’s flaked/retired twice on the team, but still only 29 and one of the best RT at the time.Nothing to lose bringing him back, probably better then the backups right now, are trade him?? Thoughts?

    • Winder says:

      Once they sign him they owe him money. That’s what he did the last time he stuck around just long enough to get paid. I wouldn’t even piss on him. Trade him for a 7th rd pick for the future.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    If he wants to move to guard go for it. We need all the line help we can get.

  12. rtfirefly says:

    John Keith
    Jeff Chandler
    Kevin Curtis
    Brandon Lloyd
    Isaac Sopoaga
    Richard Seigler
    Michael Robinson
    Jay Moore
    Dashon Goldson
    Joe Cohen
    Cody Wallace
    Kendall Hunter
    Joe Looney
    Quinton Patton
    Marcus Lattimore
    Bruce Ellington
    Dontae Johnson
    Blake Bell
    Mike Davis
    DeAndre Smelter
    Rashard Robinson
    Joe Williams
    Kentavius Street

    What do these players have in common? Niner 4th rounders of the last 20 years. An awful lot of chaff for some wheat, there’s even three Pro-Bowls there (Goldson 2, Robinson 1 as a Seahawk).

    • Winder says:

      That list kinda makes our punter pick look pretty good.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Soap was quite good, Looney’s become quite good, but the chances of a nobody or a nearly useless fringe player is extremely high.

      • Winder says:

        IIRC Soap could collapse a pocket but he wasn’t very good against the run or getting to the QB. He was strong as an ox. It really does show that much of the draft is a gamble. Very few guarantees. I think most of the ‘experts’ said that Thomas was the best DL in the draft when we picked him. I could be wrong about that.

    • rob says:

      Good , but not great players ! After rd. 4 the draft becomes even more of a crap shoot

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Street I’m hopeful for. He was a stud before he got hurt. If he returns to form, we’ll be loaded on the line. He can play all over the place.

    Big if but this defense should be improved in the pass rush at least. Which SHOULD make the DBs better.

    Shon Coleman, I don’t even remember us getting him.


    • Winder says:

      He doesn’t sound like a very promising player. Cleveland picked him in the 3rd and it was probably a very early 3rd and then dumped him to us for a 7th. At least it’s not much of a gamble for us if he craps out.

  14. rtfirefly says:

    Interesting. Kerr’s been starting Iggy at C along with the big four, which he’s only done a very few times ever. Why, he was asked. So 35 yr. old Iggy can guard Harden. Still great after all these years, way to go Iggy!

  15. unca_chuck says:

    Vey big game tonight for the Warriors. Losing game 5 at home could be a killer.

    Steph and Klay were all over the place these last couple games. Houston is tough though.

    Losing Cousins is very apparent on the boards. Houstin had a ton of 2nd chance points these last couple games.

    • Booger Cousins says:

      You are absolutely right, Chuck. Only having five all stars on one team is devastating when Cousins is out, too. They need to think about signing Kawahi and Westbrook next year to make things fair. Adversity is way too stressful for this team and their fans and they should’ve suffer it like mere mortal teams do.

      • unca_chuck says:

        Believe it or not fucknut, this may be the Warriors last championship. If they even make it.

        I think Thompson stays, but KD is a huge question, and Collins ain’t staying unless he agrees to a huge pay cut. They’d have to really fix the bench and get a scorer to make up for some of KD’s absence.

    • Stephanie Curry says:

      Who the heck is Collins? Is he the new punter the Niners drafted?

  16. rtfirefly says:

    the rockets took the warriors to 7 last year, too. they match up better against the warriors than any other team in the west. the upstart nuggets and blazers gave the warriors trouble this year as well, though the warriors seemed to have denver figured out the last couple games. getting by the rockets is the hard part.

    the warriors good vet backups have aged. iggy can’t play many minutes. livingston, previously a great bench player, is no longer effective; that’s huge. in short, their bench sucks and all the minutes that kd, steph, and klay have had to play game after game are showing. watching looney when he gets stuck “guarding” harden after a switch is a smdh moment. every. single. time.

    each game has been a war so far. should go 7. it’s fun!

  17. rtfirefly says:

    You think the Warriors have problems. Kyrie Irving demanded to be The Man, went to Boston to get his wish. The Celts came sooo close last year and Kyrie would get them over the hump. <25% shooting (and lottts of shooting) against the Bucks later – in the East SEMIS, he's halfway out of town already and the Celts have to start over.

  18. rtfirefly says:

    Uh oh. Looks like KD might’ve popped an Achilles. If he did The Party’s Over.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Calf injury of some kind. Just squeaked by but it gonna be tough with no depth. Be great if they could do it!

  19. unca_chuck says:

    If they can get by Houston, we still may have a shot, But they will need a LOT more from the bench.

    Certainly possible, but we’ll see. Steph and Klay are gonna have to be feeling it all night. It’ll likely go to 7, but I’d like for us to close this out. Maybe Harden has another crunch time debacle.

    • Bron Bron says:

      You need to sign more All-Stars. With all of these injuries you’re only down to four on one team now. That’s inconceivable! Get LeBron, Leonard, Carmelo, Westbrook, and the Greek Freak and the Dubs will be good to go! How will they get it done without Durant and Cousins is anyone’s guess, though. They’ll have to play like normal basketball teams do.

  20. unca_chuck says:

    A couple months ago I was pushing my son’s car out of an intersection, and felt the pop. From what I thought I knew, I thought I had blown out my achilles. It felt like someone kicked me in my calf really hard. Course I turned around and no one was there. I could feel the muscle roll up my leg. Weird as fuck.

    Turned out it was a grade 2 pull. Took like 3-4 weeks before it got back to normal. What is so strange is he wasn’t even pushing off on it. That gives me hope that it isn’t really bad, and just may be a few-day thing.

    • Kevin Doorant says:

      I am actually just faking it because I don’t want to play for Lakers. If Irving can walk out on Avengers then I can walk out on the Fakers.

  21. rtfirefly says:

    The final 8:30 with no Durant in the game, James Harden took 1 shot. 1.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. I didn’t notice it at the time. I think Harden has yet another egg to lay in these playoffs.

    The pressure on Harden and CP is gonna be off the charts if they can’t finish the deal with us missing KD.

    • rtfirefly says:

      Harden’s been All-World in this series, If there’s a better outside shooter in the league than Steph, he’s it. He was obviously exhausted, though. The Warriors have been sending waves of defenders at him, each with a different style he has to get used to. The Warriors have had some success as well totally overplaying his left (shooting) side, conceding drives inside and hoping to challenge him there. That, and massive minutes, have worn him down.

      Still, those last minutes were a total head-scratcher.

  23. James Hardenn says:

    You guys are running out of all stars. Houston will get a chance to beat a regular basketball team instead of Team USA. You should have stocked up on your bench instead of building a super team and then calling it “homegrown”. Either way, Chase Center will never see a championship team and Oakland’s Warriors built that arena. LOL

  24. unca_chuck says:

    It’s always nice to see your posts caught in the spam filter, skippy. Hahahahahaha!

    How ’bout them Lakers? 2010? Cool. What have they done for you lately? 6 losing seasons in a row, that’s what.

    Ty Lue, the Bron Bron whisperer, told Jeanie Buss to take a flying fuck with the pathetic offer they made him. The Fakers should just go ahead and name Queen James the player/coach and be done with it. Or word is, they may trade him!!!!


    Clown car indeed.

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Yup. WhennWest left the lakers the slide started.

  26. rtfirefly says:

    Down goes Houston!

  27. rtfirefly says:

    Get this:
    1st half- Steph 0 pts. (foul trouble), Klay 24
    2nd half- Klay 3 pts. very late in the 4th qtr., Steph 33

    They’re ba-ackkk

  28. unca_chuck says:

    One of the guttiest wins by the Warriors in this run. That was a HUGE 3 by Klay.

    • Rip City says:

      I’ve seen better. And it took that idiot Klay to walk out on a simple movie like Endgame just to focus because he couldn’t understand the plot. Good game but what a complete mental midget.

    • unca_chuck says:

      Sez the wet-brain. You neeed to find some meaning in your pitiful existence.

      What a sad, disappointing piece of shit you have turned into. Your mom must be spinning in her grave.

  29. rtfirefly says:

    Next up, the Blazers, my 2nd-favorite NBA team. Rip City comin’ to town, baby!

    • Rtbandwagonfly says:

      What a front runner fan you are, boy

      • rtfirefly says:

        I’ve been a Warrior fan since my first game in Daly City cerca 1970. Been to dozens of games at the Oakland Coliseum Arena.
        Liked the Blazers since I lived there in the early ’90’s: Clyde the Glyde, Jerome Kersey who I ran into at a Red Robin. Definitely my second fav team.
        What’s your excuse?

      • rtfirefly says:

        By the way, girl, I passed the BOY stage during the Carter administration.
