49ers Players Welcome First-round Pick Arik Armstead

After a nationwide search to find their 2015 first-round draft pick, the San Francisco 49ers selected a prospect out of their own backyard on Thursday.

Arik Armstead is a Sacramento, Calif., native and went to high school at nearby Pleasant Grove.

The 21-year-old will now move south to Santa Clara to join his new employer, which spent the 17th overall pick on him.

Below is a compilation of Tweets that followed the 49ers selecting the Oregon defensive tackle.
