Here's the 49ers total haul from the 2017 NFL draft: 1A. Solomon Thomas, DL, Stanford; 1B. Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama; 3A. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado; 3B. C.J. Beathard, QB, Iowa; 4. Joe Williams, RB, Utah; 5A. George Kittle, TE, Iowa; 5B. Trent Taylor, WR, Louisiana Tech; 6A. D.J. Jones, DT, Mississippi; 6B. Pita Taumoepenu, DE, Utah; 7. Adrian Colbert, DB, Miami. The Niners also traded for Denver Broncos RB Kapri Bibbs.

The Chargers got some real value with CB Desmond King in the 5th round. King has the ball skills and instincts to make plays and he was one of the top tackling CBs I watched on tape. King also brings the versatility to move around in the secondary and impact special teams.

Another good fit at TE with George Kittle and the 49ers. Kittle is one of the top blocking TEs in this class. That jumps out on film. But Kittle also has 4.5 speed and can be utilized in Kyle Shanahan's system as a "move TE" or H-Back.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers used pick No. 146 on Iowa TE George Kittle. Kittle is considered one of the best blocking tight ends in the draft and has underrated hands. This is another pick that has a chance to contribute right away at a position where the Niners could use help.

There's a case to be made that defensive tackle is the Vikings' biggest question mark outside the offensive line, with Sharrif Floyd's future in doubt, and Jaleel Johnson can step in and help at three-technique tackle if he's able to use his strength effectively in the NFL. Johnson will likely compete with Datone Jones and Tom Johnson for playing time, and the Vikings should be able to expect the trio to provide a solid interior pass rush next to Linval Joseph.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

DT Jaleel Johnson has that initial speed off the ball to play a role for the Vikings as an interior pass rusher. Johnson had a productive week at the Senior Bowl, showcased his quickness during 1-on-1 drills and flashed on the tape with impact plays.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan points to quarterback C.J. Beathard's experience in an offense similar to what he runs as a reason Beathard stood out. Shanahan saw the traits in Beathard to translate those skills to the NFL. Shanahan said that won't happen right away but he hopes he can develop long term.

The Jaguars have four picks in the final four rounds of the NFL draft on Saturday. They have the third pick in the fourth round, the fourth pick in the fifth round, and two picks in the seventh round (fourth and 22nd). They traded their sixth-round pick to Seattle to move up one spot in the second round to select Alabama OT Cam Robinson. Players to watch in the fourth round include TE Jake Butt, CB Desmond King, and QB Nathan Peterman.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

New 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard said the feedback he received indicated he could go anywhere from the third to sixth rounds. The Niners took him in the late third with pick No. 104. He also said he believes he's capable of becoming a starter in the NFL.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers have drafted a developmental quarterback, selecting Iowa's C.J. Beathard with pick No. 104. A surprising move with the likes of Tennessee's Joshua Dobbs and Pitt's Nathan Peterman on the board.

Iowa considered OG U?

The Hawkeyes join Arizona State as the two schools who have produced the most offensive guards in the NFL draft over the past decade.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa State and Iowa have extended their Cy-Hawk series two seasons through 2023. The first game will be played in Iowa City in 2022, with the return trip coming in Ames the following season. The two schools renewed their annual series in 1977.
