49ers sign 1st round pick Eric Reid

The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their draft pick signings, inking first-round pick Eric Reid on Friday.

The San Francisco 49ers have signed first-round draft pick Eric Reid, and now have their entire 2013 NFL Draft class under contract. Reid took to Twitter and posted a picture of him putting pen to paper, accompanied with the text "Beyond blessed! Officially a 49ER!"

San Francisco wasn't in rare company in regards to unsigned first-round picks, as Reid is just the 10th of the 32 picks taken on the first day to sign on the dotted line. There was a decent chunk of time between Reid and the previous signing, Corey Lemonier, who signed back on June 10, but with the rookie wage scale in place in the latest CBA, there was little cause for concern.

Reid has high expectations heading into his rookie year. He's likely to earn the starting role opposite Donte Whitner, starting in the free safety spot previously occupied by Pro Bowler Dashon Goldson. That said, the 49ers picked the right time to let Goldson walk and draft his replacement, as this year's draft was the deepest safety class we've seen in some time.

During the team's minicamp, Reid rotated with free agent addition Craig Dahl and last year's primary backup and special teams ace C.J. Spillman. When training camp gets started in late July, it's a safe bet that we'll see more and more of Reid working out with the starting defense.
