    Bill Williamson

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers -- the power brokers of the 2014 draft as they entered with a league-high six picks in the first three rounds -- did their thing Friday night. It was one big, messy, impossible-to-follow cluster of picks...

  6. 49ers pick Brandon Thomas in 3rd

    Bill Williamson

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The pick: Brandon Thomas, guard, Clemson My take: Thomas was a great value pick at No. 100 overall, but he won't help this year. He tore his ACL while working out for the New Orleans Saints recently. He will probably miss al...

  7. 49ers pick Marcus Martin in 3rd

    Bill Williamson

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The pick: Marcus Martin, C, USC My take: I wouldn't be surprised if Martin becomes a starter as a rookie. The 49ers have Daniel Kilgore, whom they gave him a modest contract extension, but Martin can be a superior player. I...

  9. 49ers pick Carlos Hyde in 2nd

    Bill Williamson

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The pick: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State My take: I can't argue with the value. The 49ers, with a league-high five picks tonight, waited and let the board come to them. They made two trades and pounced on Hyde. Frank Gore, ente...

  13. 49ers pick Jimmie Ward in 1st

    Bill Williamson

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The pick: Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois. My take: Stunned. Ward is a fine player, but considered by some as a second-round pick. The 49ers have now taken safeties in the first round of the past two drafts. They traded up...

    Bill Williamson

    Here is my seven-round prediction for the San Francisco 49ers' draft. No, I do not have any confidence I'm getting this correct. But I am going to project a trade since I don't believe they're going to keep all 11 picks. I think I will at least b...
