Round 5, Pick 157: Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri

You want to talk about value? That’s exactly what the 49ers get with the first of two fifth-round picks. Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam blew everyone away at the Combine when he ran a blistering 40-time (4.49 seconds).

The 6-foot-5 developmental tight end offers tons of speed as a receiver and could be a very, very intriguing player to use in two tight end sets, along with George Kittle.

Pair him up with Kittle and have him improve his physicality and blocking, and the 49ers would boast a deadly duo at tight end for the coming years.

Round 5, Pick 177: Benito Jones, DL, Ole Miss

This might be one of my favorite later round sleepers. Benito Jones is a heck of a player. He just needs to add a little more muscle to his frame. Even so, Jones is in the backfield all the time and blows up run plays in a hurry.

Jones would be able to come in right away and become a rotational player for the 49ers, and boy, what a group around him to help him develop. They would be getting a guy with a strong upper half who just needs to get stronger in his base.

Jones gets through the line quickly, still, so imagine what happens when he gets stronger through his legs.
