49ers get entire draft class under contract

Chris Simms' QB rankings enter the top 20 with Jimmy Garoppolo, who may have lost his job in San Francisco thanks to too many mistakes but who remains a very capable NFL starter.

Word that the 49ers signed second-round pick Drake Jackson came from Jackson’s agent on Thursday and the 49ers formally announced the agreement a few hours later.

They also announced that they signed the eight other players in the class. All nine picks signed four-year contracts with the Niners.

Last year’s trade up for Trey Lance cost the Niners their first-round pick, so Jackson was the top choice. They picked up LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price and SMU wide receiver Danny Gray in the third round to close out their second day selections.

Fourth-round tackle Spencer Burford, fifth-round cornerback Samuel Womack, sixth-round tackle Nick Zakelj, sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, sixth-round cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields, and seventh-round quarterback Brock Purdy make up the rest of this year’s draft class.
