49ers sign undrafted rookie Cody Schrader

By Jared Smola | Updated on Sun, 28 Apr 2024, 8:34 PM EDT

The 49ers signed undrafted rookie RB Cody Schrader. Schrader spent six years in college and will turn 25 in September. But he’s coming off a massive 2023 season. After four years at Truman State, Schrader walked on at Missouri and immediately led the team with 745 rushing yards in 2022. Then he ripped off 1,627 rushing yards and 14 TDs on 5.9 yards per carry, plus 22 catches for 191 yards, this past year. Schrader led the SEC in rushing and was named a first-team All-American. He ranked 32nd among 157 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus’ rushing grades. Schrader is a sturdy 5’9, 202-pounder with good contact balance and strong leg drive. He’s also reliable in the passing game as a receiver and protector. Schrader doesn’t run with much wiggle, though, and bombed at the Combine with a 2.33 Relative Athletic Score. At his advanced age, it’s fair to wonder how much meat is left on this bone. He’s obviously a dynasty long shot after going undrafted and landing in Christian McCaffrey’s backfield. We’ll see if Schrader can make the team this summer.
