The 49ers have added another offensive lineman in the 2021 NFL Draft, selecting Western Michigan's Jaylon Moore with the 155th overall pick.

Moore participated in the 2021 Senior Bowl, and was part of an offensive line at Western Michigan that ranked 10th in the nation by allowing just 1.17 sacks per game (h/t Pro Football Network).

Playing a variety of positions coming out of high school, the 6-foot-4 Moore thought he would be a tight end for the Broncos.

As NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco pointed out following the selection, Moore will have a chance to compete for the swing tackle spot backing up Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey.

Pro Football Focus measured that Moore rarely allowed his quarterbacks at Western Michigan to feel any heat, as Jeff Deeney points out.

 After the selection of Moore, the 49ers have three draft choices remaining on Day 3.
