The following undrafted rookies signed three-year contracts: Linebacker Justin Hilliard (Ohio State), tight end Josh Pederson (Louisiana Monroe), Elijah Sullivan (Kansas State) and Austin Watkins Jr. (UAB).

The 49ers also signed international offensive lineman Alfredo Gutierrez (Tecnológico de Monterrey), who is assured of holding an extra spot on the team's practice squad this season.

The draft picks have slotted salaries with their four-year contracts.

Banks, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, is scheduled to earn $7.1 million over four years.

With the wave of signings, the 49ers have only three draft picks who remain unsigned: quarterback Trey Lance (first round), and running back Trey Sermon and cornerback Ambry Thomas, both third-round picks.

Unsigned draft picks are allowed to take part in the team's offseason program. However, unsigned picks are not eligible to report to training camp in the summer.
