The 49ers had two seventh-round picks Saturday — pick Nos. 5 and 22.
With the fifth pick in Round 7, the 49ers drafted defensive tackle Jullian Taylor from Temple.
Taylor recorded only one sack in college, and missed time with a torn ACL. But, he played 12 games last season and recorded 11 tackles for loss. And at his Pro Day, he ran a 4.94 40-yard dash weighing 294 lbs. Seems like his knee is OK. Taylor has potential to become a reliable backup. Good seventh-round pick.
With the 22nd pick in Round 7, the 49ers drafted yet another slot receiver: Richie James from Middle Tennessee State.
James is athletic and productive — don’t get me wrong. But so is the slot receiver the Niners drafted last year, Trent Taylor. And so is the slot receiver they drafted Friday, Dante Pettis. That’s a lot of slot receivers.
