49ers sign LB Aaron Lynch, DT Kaleb Ramsey


Like the Bears, the 49ers are getting off to a quick start when it comes to getting their draft picks under contract.

The Niners have signed linebacker Aaron Lynch and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey, the club said Tuesday night. Both players received four-year deals.

A fifth-round pick from USF, the 6-foot-6, 244-pound Lynch notched six sacks for the Bulls in 2013. He projects to outside linebacker in the 49ers’ 3-4 scheme.

“He’s a young man that has a lot of talent and a lot of traits to work with,” 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke said after the draft of Lynch, according to the club.

The 49ers took the 6-foot-3, 285-pound Ramsey in Round Seven. Ramsey notched 90 tackles (15 for loss) and six sacks in 41 collegiate games. He missed most of the 2011 and 2012 seasons with foot and calf injuries, respectively.

“Good football player. A very versatile football player,” Baalke said of Ramsey. “Has played all along the front at Boston College. A guy that can play three-technique, can play four-technique, has played some five-technique, gives you some inside pass rush.”

Lynch and Ramsey are the first draft picks with whom the 49ers have announced deals.

San Francisco and Chicago are the only clubs to have announced draft pick agreements. The Bears have reached deals with six of their eight selections.

    To be fair at this point Lynch will sign just about anything, but since there is now a rookie scale they should all be signed right away.

    Double AA Lynch is starting out on the right foot. He is going to try to make a team with one of the most talented and stacked rosters in the NFL.
    He has a license or ticket to the big time. The rest is up to double AA . There really is a chance this kid could make it . Hope is not a plan ,he must perform or he will be out in a nano second.

    Can you say replacement signings for players that are rapidly aging? That window is definitely on the down-swing for these guys. Meanwhile, Arizona and St. Louis are closing with youth! And Seattle…

    49ers are new the Patriots. Always building, finding value, consistently competitive.

    Yet they refuse to pay their franchise QB?

    Lynch was 26 lbs. heavier when he came to Notre Dame as a freshman in 2011. He was a freshman All-American and then he left the school in spring 2012.

    He could be a serious steal as a 6th rounder.

    why do the santa clara 49ers act shocked when the questionable players they sign do questionable things?

    Well, Aaron Lynch got a job at nearly the exact time his former strength coach at USF, Hans Straub lost a job. Kismet.

    Lynch has caused damage wherever he has gone. I hope he grows up… Mr. Lynch, I’d like you to meet Coach Jim Leavitt… Good luck with the bad attitude with him

    “Santa Clara 49ers”

    You say that like it’s a bad thing. Saw the new stadium a couple weeks ago. It’s awesome. Plenty of parking, easy access. No more freaky Candlestick Point winds to deal with.

    Great looking park!

    Love the back and forth between SEA and SF.
    Hopefully it continues on the field and much harder each time, like to see more bad blood there, helps out, continue plz.

    Apparently playing in a stadium outisde of city limits makes you the team of whatever town it’s located. So Dallas, New York, Buffalo, Washington and SF all need to change their names now.

    But I get it, people from Seattle aren’t used to big metropolitan areas so when your town is the size of most strip malls it’s hard to fathom that you can still bear the name of a City and play a few miles down the road.

    They’ll always be the San Francisco 49ers like it or not.

    Actually they’re the early 2000s Eagles … Wasting first round picks on bad WRs (Freddie Mitchell vs AJ Jenkins) … 2 NFC title game losses and 1 Super Bowl loss in the last three years. Harbaugh is dangerously close to Andy Reid territory.
