49ers sign a trio of draft picks

The 2011 labor deal dramatically streamlined the process for getting rookie draft picks signed and sealed. As a result, plenty of teams that previously didn’t even start negotiating until after the Fourth of July are now getting these deals done before Memorial Day.

The 49ers are on the front end of the draft-pick signing parade by getting three of their selections under contract. The team announced the transactions on Saturday.

Officially members of the team are third-round defensive back Tarvarius Moore, seventh-round receiver Richie James Jr., and seventh-round defensive tackle Jullian Taylor.

More teams should get rookies signed before they ever take the field, and more rookies (and their agents) should insist on it. While unsigned rookies enter into letters of protection that promise them the money they’d get if they suffer a serious injury before signing their contracts, the best protection comes from signing the contract.

  1. Tarvarius Moore is the ultimate high ceiling draft pick. Insane measurables. if he can play CB he has the chance to be a great player with that size and speed combo.

  2. It’s gonna be fun to see what happens with Jimmy G and this team. Not an NFC fan at all, but i’ll be paying attention to his performance and results this year. They say money makes people crazy. He’s got the pressure of being the next Brady and carrying a franchise on his back and he’s never completed and entire season in the NFL. Let’s see what happens.

  3. Santa Clara had a brutal draft, some reaches especially Peter King’s twin brother in the 1st round. John Lynch is a self proclaimed genius and Garoppolo is waaaaaay overpaid for a guy who has started just 7 NFL games.

    Well you would know about garbage organisations being a fan of the only team in sports who are bums. No true home just sifting from place to place because you’re absolute rejects.

    Anyways, to be a criminal you would first need to commit a crime and none of Lynch’s draftees from either year have done so. I would say look up how our justice system works but you’re a Raiduhhh fan so let’s start small and get you a coloring book.

    Jimmy G will be ten times better than Dak Prescott who was overhyped his first year. His career will never be anything better than 5 yard game manager
