49ers rookie class already contributing

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — By all accounts, the San Francisco 49ers received high grades after their draft in May. Despite being a stacked team that had played in three straight NFC title games, they were able to select players who could contribute immediately.

But due to injury and attrition, not even the Niners could have imagined just how big said contributions would be 10 weeks into the season.

 Consider: Seven of the 49ers’ 12 draft picks have already made major contributions, with third-rounder Chris Borland racking up 35 tackles combined in the past two games since stepping in for Patrick Willis at an inside linebacker position.
