Rashard Robinson at a glance

Selected: 133rd (35th, fourth round)

College: LSU

Position: Cornerback

Height, weight: 6-foot-1, 171 pounds

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “He doesn't have a lot of experience – just eight starts at LSU – but Robinson played well against some very good SEC wide receivers when he was on the field in 2014.”

Ronald Blair at a glance

Selected: 142nd (third, fifth round)

College: Appalachian State

Position: Defensive line

Height, weight: 6-2, 284

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “A very quick defensive lineman for his size, Blair may be the most intriguing of all the 49ers' picks. He could be a situational pass rusher as a rookie.”

John Theus at a glance

Selected: 145th (sixth, fifth round)

College: Georgia

Position: Offensive line

Height, weight: 6-6, 303

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “He has experience playing both tackle positions in the ultra-competitive SEC. He could challenge Trent Brown for a starting role at right tackle or be the 49ers' swing tackle.”

Fahn Cooper at a glance

Selected: 174th (37th, fifth round)

College: Ole Miss

Position: Offensive line

Height, weight: 6-4, 303

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “Like Theus, Cooper has played on the left side but is much better suited for right tackle. He offers more competition to Brown.”

Jeff Driskel at a glance

Selected: 207th overall (32nd, sixth round)

College: Louisiana Tech

Position: Quarterback

Height, weight: 6-4, 231

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “He has good size and underrated athleticism. He seems like he would mesh nicely in Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense.”

Kelvin Taylor at a glance

Selected: 211th (36th, sixth round)

College: Florida

Position: Running back

Height, weight: 5-10, 205

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “He doesn't have his father's size or speed. But Taylor was productive when he was the featured runner at Florida. He adds to a deep but undistinguished mix of players behind Carlos Hyde.”

Aaron Burbridge at a glance

Selected: 213th (38th, sixth round)

College: Michigan State

Position: Wide receiver

Height, weight: 6-1, 208

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “He has neither good size or impressive athleticism. But Burbridge was very productive in the Big 10 and is a fierce competitor. He could be a good slot receiver.”

Charles Iworah at a glance

Selected: 249th (28th, seventh round)

College: Western Kentucky

Position: Cornerback

Height, weight: 5-11, 193

Comment: The Bee’s Matt Barrows writes, “He's a very fast cornerback who played at a small school. The 49ers have few stand-out cornerbacks, but they suddenly are a lot of bodies at the position.”
