The San Francisco 49ers selected Will Redmond (knee) in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 68th overall.
Redmond likely would have been a second-round pick and could have even pushed for the first round if he hadn't torn his ACL during the 2015 season. This therefore looks like a potential bargain for a 49ers team that lacks proven options at corner.
Bruce Miller has been mixing in snaps at tight end during the San Francisco 49ers ' offseason program, CSN Bay Area reports.
Miller has served as the team's fullback for the past five seasons, but he did see limited snaps at tight end last year. The reason for the potential role change is Chip Kelly's read-option offense, which doesn't utilize a fullback. Miller's versatile skill set and good hands (76 career receptions for 734 yards) should make the transition seamless, and he should be in the mix for snaps during training camp.
Eli Harold , who was instructed to get stronger this offseason, has put on 30 pounds and now weighs 270 pounds, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.
The 2015 third-round pick played sparingly last season. GM Trent Baalke recommended that Harold get stronger this offseason, and he responded by packing on nearly 30 pounds of mass. In a 3-4 scheme, the San Francisco 49ers could be looking at Harold as the eventual replacement to Ahmad Brooks at outside linebacker. He would serve as the run-stopping option opposite the pass-rush specialist Aaron Lynch.
The San Francisco 49ers selected Garnett in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 28th overall.
The 49ers traded back up into the first round after previously selecting DeForest Buckner at the seventh pick. The 49ers presumably view Garnett as a guard, in which case he'll likely compete with Zane Beadles and Brandon Thomas for a starting role.
The San Francisco 49ers selected DeForest Buckner in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, seventh overall.
Although he doesn't have the profile of an annual double-digit sack threat in the NFL, this is still a great pick for San Francisco. Buckner is like a more developed, more talented version of former Oregon teammate Arik Armstead, who the 49ers picked in the first round a year ago. Like Arizona's Calais Campbell, Buckner should be a high-impact contributor as a 3-4 end. Thanks to his rare tackle production in college -- over 80 tackles each of the last two years -- Buckner projects as a potential impact IDP whenever he earns a three-down role.
