Two things are being talked about in the Ninersworld. Adam Snyder has returned home and brings a ton of versatility and experience to our backups at OL. The depth chart will be better off for having him, plus he's familiar with the schemes and many of the players. Welcome back Adam. The other topic of the day is the official signing of the UDFAs to the roster. There are some quiet ones and some extremely big British ones.
I'm pushing you into the abyss that is the links because I'm running late getting home from work. Enjooooooyyyyyyyyyy!
Adam Snyder Returns
Matt Maiocco brings up what we all already know. Adam Snyder is a versatile addition, familiar with the team, and is inexpensive. | Snyder can play wherever 49ers need him (Maiocco)
And for all of you who wanted us to go after the aged / ageless Charles Woodson, this may put a damper on it. | 49ers up against the cap after Snyder signing (Maiocco)

It's Fun to Stay at the UDFA

NFC West News
BASG has taken a look at the draft grades given out for the teams in the NFC West. Using a school-style grading system, he's calculated the GPA for each team. Guess who wins? Oh, wait, spoiler title. | 49ers' draft moves them to the head of the class in the NFC West (BASG)
Iupati, oh no
Mike Iupati has apparently had some shoulder surgery. It's considered minor, though the exact nature of the injury is unknown due to all things 49ers being shrouded in a cloak of secrecy. | Iupati had offseason surgery, likely to miss some OTAs (Barrows)
One player who's name was on many tongues prior to the draft, but who may have been dealt the biggest setback in its aftermath was Ricardo Lockette. I do think that Coach Harbaugh likes him and he is blazingly fast. But with Quinton Patton falling into the teams laps in the 4th round, he may have been bumped too far down the depth chart. | Ricardo Lockette sets big goals (49ers.com)
