The San Francisco 49ers fell short of making it back to the Super Bowl in 2013. In fact, the 49ers took a backseat to the rival Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West. The 49ers had a bunch of picks in the draft, which was helpful, but they also had a good UDFA period too. Here are five UDFAs who will make the final 53-man roster.

Despite finishing his collegiate career with under 200 receiving yards, there is a lot to like about Miami's Asante Cleveland. Vernon Davis is one of the best tight ends in the league, but he is subpar at blocking in the running game. At 6-foot-4, 250-pounds, Cleveland will be able to make an impact as a blocker on early downs.
Michigan State had one of the best rushing attacks in college football last year and tackle Fou Fonoti was a big reason why. Coming from a big school, Fonoti has played against some good competition in the Big Ten. Fonoti has a solid chance of making this team and could be a nice depth player.
Just like Fonoti, New Mexico's Dillion Farrell has a good chance to make this team just because there isn't a lot of depth behind starting center Marcus Martin, who is also a rookie. Farrell is also versatile enough to play guard, which makes him an intriguing depth player.
With some bulk added on, USC's Morgan Breslin could a nice playmaker off the edge for the 49ers. Breslin never met expectations at USC, but there is a ton of potential in this kid. He is raw and still very unpolished, but Breslin possesses a long wingspan and a serious explosiveness that could make him dangerous.
In my opinion, Shayne Skov is one of the best UDFAs. Playing for one of the best defenses in all of college football for the past four years, Skov has been a playmkaer and made an impact in many ways. Skov is capable of making a play in the backfield and he can cover receivers too. Skov has a ton of talent to back up Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman.
