SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — The 2020 NFL Draft is officially underway.
The San Francisco 49ers had two first-round picks.
The San Francisco 49ers selected wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Niners traded their 31st pick, 117 and 176 to the Minnesota Vikings for the 25th pick when they selected Aiyuk.
With the No. 13 pick, the Niners and Buccaneers traded spots, so San Francisco slid back to 14. With the 14th pick, San Francisco selected Javon Kinlaw in the 1st round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-5, 324 pound defensive tackle played at the University of South Carolina.
In 2016, Kinlaw received second-team junior college All-American honors following his performance at Jones County Junior College. He had a combined 26 tackles, 8.5 for loss and four sacks in nine games.
He reached his full potential when he transferred to the University of South Carolina. He really shined on the field during his senior year, when he earned first-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-SEC honors.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan and General Manager John Lynch have made one message very clear this offseason: they want to keep as much of this 49ers team together as they can.
So it took many by surprise when the Niners traded DeForest Buckner, one of their veteran defensive tackles and leaders, to the Indianapolis Colts.
