Players, Analysts React to 49ers First-round Picks

The San Francisco 49ers added a pair of first-round talents to their roster on Thursday night. 

After selecting Oregon defensive lineman DeForest Buckner with the No. 7 overall pick, the team traded back into the opening round at No. 28 in a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.

With that extra pick, the 49ers took a local Bay Area product in Stanford guard Joshua Garnett.

Here's how social media reacted to San Francisco bulking up in the trenches:


Congrats @DeForestBuckner ! Welcome to the squad! — Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) April 29, 2016

About to take off and saw we picked someone else. Congrats Joshua! He has the shortest trip ever  — Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) April 29, 2016
