With the 2012 NFL Draft now officially out of the way, the race is on to sign the best of the rest: the undrafted free agents. The San Francisco 49ers, along with most other teams in the league, are already hard at work signing players in this year's pool of talent who weren't picked up during the draft proper.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the team has already signed a couple of players with ties to Jim Harbaugh by way of the Stanford Cardinal: wide receiver Chris Owusu and defensive tackle/nose tackle Matthew Masifilo.
The players that have reportedly signed with the 49ers as undrafted free agents, according to Barrows. The list includes another Stanford name, that of safety Michael Thomas:
Brian Tymes, WR, FAMU
Nathan Palmer, WR, NIU
Al Netter, OG, Northwestern
Joe Holland, OLB, Purdue
Garrett Celek, TE, Michigan State
Michael Thomas, S, Stanford
Chris Owusu, WR, Stanford
Matt Masifilo, DT, Stanford
Jewel Hampton, RB, Southern Illinois
