The San Francisco 49ers reached contract agreements with four of their draft picks, according to CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco.
Here are the numbers and signees:
DT Quinton Dial, 5th round pick: 4 years, $2.34 million
Recorded 1.5 sacks and five tackles for loss in 2012. Dial registered 2.5 sacks over his career, so he isn’t a huge difference-maker, but he is 6’6″ and weighs 304 pounds.
QB B.J. Daniels, 7th round pick: 4 years, $46,512 signing bonus (contract terms unknown)
Although he is listed at just six-foot tall, Daniels is a very athletic passer, using his legs to elude pressure and pick up yards on the ground when needed (1,634 career rushing yards). He is a poised and confident player in the huddle, but has streaky timing as a passer and struggles under pressure when forced to accelerate his delivery.
If he wishes to have any future at the next level, Daniels needs to improve his accuracy, specifically the ball placement to his targets with a career completion percentage under 58.0%. He is a long-shot to get drafted at this point, but he has his senior season to show NFL scouts that he can stay healthy and consistent.
OT Carter Bykowski, 7th round pick: 4 years, $45,896 signing bonus (contract terms unknown)
Bykowski was redshirted as a senior last year, but played all 13 games for the Cyclones in 2011. He started his college career as a tight end before moving to the offensive line.
In Iowa State’s Pro Day, Bykowski ran the 40 in 5.31 and 5.46 seconds. He had a 28 1/2-inch vertical jump.
CB Marcus Cooper, 7th round pick: 4 years, $45,896 signing bonus (contract terms unknown)
Cooper reportedly had a good showing at his pro day, turning in “the second best 40 times (4.43 and 4.47), had the best vertical leap (39 inches) and the top showing in the broad jump (10 feet, nine inches)”.
