The San Francisco 49ers just announced they’ve traded center Nick Easton and an undisclosed draft pick to the Minnesota Vikings for linebacker Gerald Hodges.
The Vikings drafted Hodges in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL draft. He started seven games in 2014, and earned a plus 8.4-grade from Pro Football Focus. He is a solid run defender who should take inside linebacker Michael Wilhoite’s starting job immediately, and improve a 49ers’ run defense that currently ranks 19th in the NFL.
