The San Francisco 49ers have been busy considering their options at tight end, and the final result remains a mystery. They entered the offseason with Vance McDonald, Garrett Celek, Blake Bell, and Je’Ron Hamm on the depth chart. They then signed Logan Paulsen as a veteran free agent, drafted George Kittle, and signed rookie free agent Cole Hikutini.
Kittle seems to be the only sure thing at this point. A fifth round pick does not qualify as a “sure thing,” but given that he has quickly worked his way into first team reps with the offense, it’s safe to say he will make the roster.
Kyle Shanahan is pleased with his tight ends. In fact, the 49ers coach said last week that all six are capable of making an NFL roster. “Yeah, we have some good competition there," he said. "It’s going to be tough for the coaches, but it’s definitely a good problem to have."
