49ers sign 1st-round draft pick Mike McGlinchey, per report

The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie tackle Mike McGlinchey, who played college football at Notre Dame. He was selected in the first round with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network first reported the news.


49ers rookies and veterans report to training camp on Wednesday with their first practice scheduled for Thursday.

McGlinchey's signing leaves second-round selection Dante Pettis as the only unsigned draft pick from this year's class.

The 6-foot-8, 315-pound McGlinchey has experience at both tackle spots during his time at Notre Dame. In three years with the Fighting Irish, McGlinchey started 39 straight games. With McGlinchey at left tackle in 2017, Notre Dame had the third-best rushing offense in the nation in yards per carry (6.25) and the seventh-best in rushing yards per game (269.3).

McGlinchey ranked as the nation's top run-blocking offensive tackle last season and the third-best overall.

Upon drafting McGlinchey, the 49ers promptly traded starting right tackle Trent Brown to the New England Patriots to move up 48 spots from the No. 143 overall pick to No. 95, where they selected Southern Mississippi defensive back Tarvarius Moore.

Thanks to the 2011 CBA, all rookie contracts are now for a length of four years. Only first-round selections come with an option for a fifth year, which applies to McGlinchy. Having set numbers for each spot eliminates the need to negotiate salaries and only leaves items like bonus payment terms, roster bonus allocations, and other miscellaneous structural items.

The total value of McGlinchey's four-year contract is believed to be $18,341,876, or very close to that amount, according to Over the Cap. That includes a signing bonus of $11,419,544 and a 2018 salary cap figure of $3,334,886.

The NFL offseason often sparks speculation, and for the San Francisco 49ers, the focal point will likely be wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's contract situation. Aiyuk is under contract through the 2024 season, thanks to the team exercising the fifth-year option on the 25-year-old receiver. Ideally, both parties would prefer to secure a long-term deal before Aiyuk steps foot on the field again. Still, there's been considerable debate about how to accomplish this while maintaining a healthy salary cap in the long run. Some have even speculated that the 49ers might need to entertain trading their star player, a scenario the team likely wishes to avoid. Mike Sando of

Brock Purdy has proven himself an impressive and promising young player for the San Francisco 49ers. It's difficult to argue against that—although some continue to try. Purdy led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in his second NFL season and set a new single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. Throughout the season, 49ers great and soon-to-be Hall of Fame linebacker Patrick Willis has voiced his admiration for Purdy and the team's achievements. However, when faced with a choice between Purdy and Colin Kaepernick, Willis sided with his former teammate. During a recent podcast appearance with Robert Griffin III, Willis was asked to choose between Kaepernick from 2012 and Purdy from 2023. "I'm going to have to take Kap," declared
