SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for Day 3 of the NFL Draft. I will update this with information and analysis from the 49ers’ press trailer.
8:53 The 49ers currently have pick Nos. 6 and 29 in the fourth round — pick Nos. 106 and 129 overall.
9:07 The Eagles take CB Jaylen Watkins with the 101st pick. Another slot corner. Compare his rookie season to Jimmie Ward’s.
9:09 Here comes the run on cornerbacks.
9:10 The Redskins take CB Bashaud Breeland with the 102nd pick.
9:24 The 49ers draft WR Bruce Ellington with the 106th. Mike Mayock calls Ellington a “natural slot receiver.”
10:32 The Chiefs take De’Anthony Thomas with the 124th pick. Great pick.
10:33 The Browns take Pierre Desir with the 127th pick. The 49ers are missing out on the cornerbacks. The Browns aren’t. They have taken Desir and Justin Gilbert in this draft.
10:35 The 49ers are on the clock.
10:36 The 49ers take CB Dontae Johnson with the 129th pick.
10:38 Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah says Johnson frequently bites and needs a lot of development.
11:29 The 49ers take DE Aaron Lynch with the 150th pick.
12:24 The 49ers are on the clock at pick No.170
12:26 The 49ers draft CB Keith Reaser from FAU. He tore his ACL last October, and then had surgery on it for a second time on February 27. Seems like another redshirt pick.
12:53 The 49ers are on the clock at pick No.180.
12:55 The 49ers take CB Kenneth Acker from SMU with the 180th pick. I expect to see his name on the Waiver Wire in a few months.
1:02 The Bears take David Fales with the 183rd pick. Great pick. Perfect fit for Fales.
3:32 The 49ers take DT Kaleb Ramsey from Boston College with pick No.243. Do you think he will make the 49ers’ final roster?
3:3 The 49ers take FB Trey Millard with the 245th pick. He is the third player who tore his ACL last season that the 49ers have drafted.
