2018 Expansion Draft - 49ers

Recommended Posts

Imagine a new team is being ushered into the league. Every team has to pick 5 players from its roster. Designated players will be pooled (32 teams, 5 players each for a total of 160 players) and be made available to the new team via the Expansion Draft. From the total pool (and current list of Free Agents), the new franchise will pick (or “draft”) a full 53-player roster for the 2018-19 season.

Typically, teams offer up players they’re actively looking to get rid of (declining performance, age, salary). 


Designation Rules:

No kickers and punters.

No players set to become free agents.

No players who just spent an entire year on injured reserve.

Only one player with 10 or more years of experience.


That being said... What 5 players would you offer up for the 2018-19 season? Why?

Without allowing for pending free agents?

Earl Mitchell

Malcolm Smith

Pace Murphy

K'Waun Williams

Nick Mullens

I could have just gone with bottom of the roster guys, honestly, but I also chose to depart with some overpriced baggage.

A better question would be: who would the 5 players that we would protect in an NHL style expansion? 

Same rules you laid out but no rookies or guys who signed here as free agents this off-season

DEFO Buckner 


Ruben Foster

Solomon Thomas 






I wish we would have traded Trent brown and 2nd round pick for gronk.. would have been magical

Doing it NHL Style:
