With all of the third round worthy pass rushers off the board, the 49ers make this PHENOMENAL value pick that provides them great flexibility across the offensive line.
The 49ers select:
Andrew Datko- OT, Florida St.
Datko is a better player than his teammate Zebrie Sanders who went in the 2nd, but injuries in his senior year push him back to the end of the 3rd. Once considered a top ten pick, Datko provides great value here and offers great felxibility in being able to0 make adjustments on our OL (can bump him in to RG or bump Anthony Davis into RG while putting Datko at RT). Between, Staley, Davis, Datko, Iupati and Boone we have great versatility at our tackle/guard positions for years to come.
