San Francisco 49ers

Meet the 49ers’ late-round draft picks

Blake Bell

Selected: 117th (Round 4)

College: Oklahoma

Position: Tight end

Height, weight: 6-foot-6, 252

Comment: Former quarterback has played tight end for only a year but has the necessary size, toughness.

Mike Davis

Selected: 126th (Round 4)

College: South Carolina

Position: Running back

Height, weight: 5-9, 217

Comment: Workhorse-style runner who has some similarities to former 49er Frank Gore and who, like Gore, enjoys pass protection.

DeAndre Smelter

Selected: 132nd (Round 4)

College: Georgia Tech

Position: Wide receiver

Height, weight: 6-2, 226

Comment: Former baseball player who played college football for only two years. Smelter has a nice combination of size and speed but probably will sit out 2015 after tearing his ACL in November.

Bradley Pinion

Selected: 165th (Round 5)

College: Clemson

Position: Punter, kickoffs

Height, weight: 6-5, 229

Comment: Pinion was arguably the best punter in the draft. Veteran Andy Lee is only 32, but his salary may be too pricey for the 49ers in coming years.

Ian Silberman

Selected: 190th (Round 6)

College: Boston College

Position: Offensive lineman

Height, weight: 6-5, 306

Comment: The 49ers have an opening at left guard this year and perhaps one at right guard next year should Alex Boone leave in free agency in March.

Trenton Brown

Selected: 244th (Round 7)

College: Florida

Position: Offensive lineman

Height, weight: 6-8, 350

Comment: Massive man with a 36-inch reach. Brown weighed as much as 387 pounds in recent years but with a better diet has dropped nearly 30 pounds. He could play tackle with the 49ers after lining up at guard for Florida.

Rory “Busta” Anderson

Selected: 254th (Round 7)

College: South Carolina

Position: Tight end

Height, weight: 6-5, 244

Comment: Fast, athletic tight end who was injured a lot at South Carolina. He’ll compete for a spot at a position that has plenty of question marks beyond this season.
