KEY FACTS

— Undrafted players account for 27 spots on the current 76-man roster (including suspended long snapper Kyle Nelson), and 31 players were “Day 3” selections from Round 4 through Round 7.

“Just because you didn’t draft a bunch of starters doesn’t mean you had a bad draft,” Shanahan said at this month’s NFL owners meetings. “It means you’re becoming an NFL team.

“… We’ve worked really hard to bring in a ton of guys. That’s been my theme with the competition. I realistically can see competition heading into this year.”

— First-round talents are indeed valued commodities and the 49ers have 10 on their roster, dating back to Joe Staley’s selection in 2007 and last month’s arrival of Dee Ford (trade) and Jason Verrett (free agency).

— Of 24 players drafted in the first three rounds, 11 came from other teams, including first-rounders Ford (Chiefs), Laken Tomlinson (Lions) and Jason Verrett (Chargers).

— Staley is among 10 players who’ve survived this regime’s roster purge since 2017. The others: Garrett Celek, Jimmie Ward, Kyle Nelson, Arik Armstead, Jaquiski Tartt, DeForest Buckner, Joshua Garnett, Ronald Blair and Raheem Mostert.

— Averaging 10 selections per draft the past decade, the 49ers have only six picks in hand entering the April 25-27 draft, starting with No. 2 overall behind the Arizona Cardinals. The other picks are in Round 2 (No. 36 overall), Round 3 (No. 67), Round 4 (No. 104) and Round 6 (Nos. 176 and 212).
