49ers draft picks 2013: Nick Moody joins four other picks in signing contract

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The 49ers locked up sixth round pick Nick Moody, leaving them with six picks in the first four rounds left to sign.

The San Francisco 49ers have handled a nice chunk of business, inking five of their eleven draft picks. Earlier today, Matt Barrows reported the team signed fifth round pick Quinton Dial. That was followed by Matt Maiocco reporting the three seventh round picks had signed. The 49ers followed that up with a press release confirming those four signings, and also included sixth round pick Nick Moody.

The former Florida State linebacker actually started his college career as a safety, but switched to linebacker in 2012. He is a bit undersized for a linebacker, but he would seem to be ideally suited for special teams work. During his post-draft conference call, he indicated he would work at inside linebacker as well, but his best bet to make the team will be his special teams work, similar to what Colin Jones did as a rookie. Moody will have to deal with the likes of Dan Skuta and Michael Wilhoite, among others.

The 49ers have now signed five of their draft picks, leaving their six picks in the first four rounds unsigned. The players can participate in offseason activities while unsigned, but they must be under contract to participate in training camp.
