The 49ers wrapped up the third and final day of the 2017 NFL draft by picking three offensive players and three on defense. From a former rugby player to last year's leading NCAA receiver by yardage, here are the 49ers' Saturday selections.
As the third round was ending, the San Francisco 49ers traded with Minnesota to take quarterback C.J. Beathard, who attracted the attention of coach Kyle Shanahan because of his plucky playing style at Iowa.
The San Francisco 49ers made some draft day moves and ended up with the player they wanted most, Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas, the No. 3 overall NFL draft choice. The team had plenty of good evidence on which to base their choice.
