The San Francisco 49ers have traded up with the Kansas City Chiefs for Pick 28 to take Stanford guard Joshua Garnett.
Garnett is the first guard drafted this year. He’s an extremely powerful run-blocker, similar to Mike Iupati, and probably will start at right guard his rookie season. The Niners gave up a fourth-round pick and a sixth-round pick to get Garnett.
GRADE: A. The Niners had a hole at right guard, and filled it with the best guard in the draft. Garnett almost surely will be a good NFL player. Excellent pick.
