An undrafted rookie free agent last year, Breida fell into the No. 2 spot on the 49ers' depth chart early last season and held his own. Checking in at 5-10, 190, the scatback ran a blistering 4.37 40-yard dash at his pro day, and while his speed didn't translate into huge gains as a rookie - he managed only two runs of 20 yards or more on 105 carries - he did show the toughness to run between the tackles on occasion while posting 4.4 YPC. He doesn't have the size to handle the consistent punishment that would come with a lead role, but as a complementary player to new starter Jerick McKinnon, Breida could still see substantial touches and production given the success San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan had with a tandem backfield in Atlanta. The Niners did sign Alfred Morris in mid-August after Breida (shoulder) and McKinnon (calf) both got nicked up.

  2. Matt Breida 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The undrafted rookie out of Georgia Southern was picked up to provide depth at the running back position for the 49ers. Standing at just 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, what Breida lacks in size he makes up for in the speed department (4.37 40 time during his pro day). He emerged as a surprise favorite for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart late in the preseason, with his spot seemingly confirmed when the Niners cut Tim Hightower and placed Joe Williams on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Breida profiles as Carlos Hyde's top backup -- a role that could potentially include regular passing-down snaps.
