49ers sign 7th-round fullback Trey Millard

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers have five more unsigned players, including first-round pick Jimmie Ward.

The San Francisco 49ers announced the signing of rookie seventh-round pick Trey Millard on Tuesday. San Francisco took Millard with the 245th overall (seventh round) pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. He was the second of two seventh-rounders, alongside defensive end Kaleb Ramsey. It's a four-year deal, as is the norm under the newest collective bargaining agreement.

Millard was San Francisco's final pick of the draft. Millard played in 48 games with the University of Oklahoma, putting up 98 carries for 538 yards and seven touchdowns with 18 starts. He also had 70 receptions for 677 yards and seven touchdowns.

Recently, your benevolent overlord, Fooch, took a look at the fullback position and how the depth chart might be shaping up. Millard seems primed to compete with Will Tukuafu for the primary backup job behind Bruce Miller, the starter.

Signing Bonus: $47,148
2014 Base: $420,000
2015 Base: $510,000
2016 Base: $600,000
2017 Base: $690,000

The base salaries are based on the minimum for each year, which is found in Article 26, Section 1 of the CBA. The contracts are generally not guaranteed aside from the signing bonus. There is no fifth year option for non-first round picks, but for picks in rounds three through seven, there is the proven performance escalatorBruce Miller and Chris Culliver both qualified for the PPE, which resulted in a bump in their respective 2014 salaries. 

Millard is the seventh draftee to put pen to paper with the 49ers. Below, we've got the 2014 draft class and their signing statuses:
