San Francisco 49ers:

Safety Jimmie Ward was a good pick at the end of the first round, and he fills a need.  But their second round pick Carlos Hyde doesn’t, as the 49ers already have a stable of good running backs.  Good value though.   Center Marcus Martin and ILB Chris Borland were both great picks in the third round.  As were WR Bruce Ellington and CB Dontae Johnson in the fourth.  As usual, the 49ers address needs and get great value in the draft at the same time.

Grade:  B+
