49ers add speed, sign UDFA wide receiver KD Cannon


  • Formerly from Baylor, WR KD Cannon joins the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent.
  • Cannon ranked ninth in the draft class with 535 receiving yards on deep passes (pass thrown 20-plus yards in the air).
  • At 5-foot-11, 182 pounds, Cannon finished in the top five at his position with a 4.41 40-yard dash and 37-inch vertical jump at the combine.
  • Cannon may need to refine his route running in the NFL, having run 81-percent screens, hitches and go routes in 2016 and lining up primarily on the right side of the formation.
