The San Francisco 49ers pulled off another trade with the Green Bay Packers, moving ahead five spots from No. 93 to No. 88, and selected defensive end Corey Lemonier out of Auburn.
Lemonier ran a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash, and according to NFL.com’s scouting report, he is “quick off the edge and the type of rusher than can only be contained for so long.”
