Kenny Chesney Announces 49ers Fourth-round Pick

You heard Roger Goodell announce the San Francisco 49ers first-round pick on Thursday. Then, a day later, you saw soon-to-be Hall of Famer Charles Haley announce the team's second-round selection.

What did the 49ers have in store for the final day of the 2015 NFL Draft?

The organization brought in some serious star power on Saturday, recruiting country music star Kenny Chesney to announce San Francisco's fourth-round pick.

Chesney's call went like this:

"With the 18th pick of the fourth round, No. 117th overall, the San Francisco 49ers select Blake Bell, tight end from Oklahoma. Congratulations, Blake."

Chesney is in town to headline a show at Levi's® Stadium with Jason Aldean.

Asked if he heard the singer announce his name on national television, Bell told reporters that he missed the moment because of the uproar at his draft party.

"Did he really?" Bell said. "Oh man, that's cool."
