Speaking on the SVP & Russillo show on ESPN radio, San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the team's goal of the draft was to select players who "reflect us."Baalke said he thought the team's overall draft class -- the 49ers took 12 players -- was, indeed, "a reflection of our identity." The 49ers are known for being physical, rugged and smart on both sides of the ball. Several players, including safety Jimmie Ward, running back Carlos Hyde, center Marcus Martin, linebacker Chris Borland, guard Brandon Thomas and receiver Bruce Ellington seem to fit the team's mold.
