2014 NFL Draft results: 49ers pick Bruce Ellington, WR, South Carolina with pick No. 106

The San Francisco 49ers made their sixth pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, selecting South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington.

Fooch's Update - Our South Carolina blog had quite a few thoughts and video on the pick

The San Francisco 49ers have gotten back to work, drafting South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington with the 106th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. It's probably a minor upset they did not trade the pick. They still have six more picks.

Mike Mayock described him as a bigger Ace Sanders, who is tough and can fit in the slot. Ellington stands 5'9, 197 lbs, and ran a 4.45 40. Here is what NFL.com had to say:

While he lacks desirable height and might not be an elite tester, Ellington brings explosiveness, hands and playmaking ability to the slot. Arrow is pointing up, and his desirable intangibles inspire confidence he'll reach his potential, especially now that he's able to focus solely on football.

The 49ers entered today with great wide receiver depth following the addition of Stevie Johnson via trade. Drafting Ellington only further boosts it. It will be interesting to see how he is able to work his way into the mix alongside Johnson and Quinton Patton, behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. It does sound like he could get some opportunities as a return man.
