NFL Draft results 2014: 49ers draft Brandon Thomas, Clemson, OG with final pick of the 3rd round

Kevin C. Cox

The San Francisco 49ers selected Clemson guard Brandon Thomas with the final pick of the third round. The 49ers acquired five players on the day, and have seven picks on Saturday.

The San Francisco 49ers closed out Day 2 of the 2014 NFL Draft by selecting Clemson guard Brandon Thomas. This was the 100th pick, and as a compensatory pick, the only pick the 49ers actually could not trade away. I'm sure Trent Baalke will push for a rule change on that at the next owners' meetings.

Thomas tore his ACL while working out for the New Orleans Saints last month. This means he will start the season on the NFI list, and will basically red-shirt the season. With Mike Iupati entering his walk year, Thomas will be back in 2015 to compete for work on the interior offensive line. We'll have plenty more on his injury status moving forward.
