49ers WR Bourne among a host of undrafted starters

LOS ANGELES — And the undrafted players shall lead them.

The 49ers will have another undrafted skill-position player assume a prominent role today in their season finale against the Rams with Kendrick Bourne serving as their No. 1 wide receiver.

Bourne, a 2017 undrafted free agent, joins undrafted quarterback Nick Mullens (2017) and undrafted rookie Jeff Wilson (2018) in the starting lineup. In addition, undrafted rookie tight end Ross Dwelley will be the No. 2 tight end with Garrett Celek out with a concussion.

Bourne is the de facto No. 1 wideout with Marquise Goodwin (calf) inactive and Dante Pettis on injured reserve with a knee injury he sustained in last week’s 14-9 loss to the Bears.

The 49ers’ other receivers today are Trent Taylor, Richie James, Max McCaffrey and undrafted rookie Steven Dunbar. McCaffrey and Dunbar are making their season debuts after they were promoted from the practice squad this week.
