The San Francisco 49ers selected Oklahoma fullback Trey Millard with the 245th overall  selection in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-2, 247-pound fullback suffered a torn left ACL on Oct. 26. Prior to the injury, Millard rushed the ball 17 times for 97 yards and caught 11 passes for 78 yards with one touchdown reception.

Millard, San Francisco's 12th pick of the draft, joins Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas (third round) and FAU cornerback Keith Reaser (fifth round) as players who likely spend the 2014 season rehabbing their respective ACL injuries.

Here's the scouting report on the Oklahoma product courtesy of NFL.com:

Outstanding size. Hits with some thump and is an efficient lead blocker. Nice run skills -- shows vision, patience and subtle moves to avoid direct contact. Soft hands. Adjusts well to the ball and possesses better body control and agility than a traditional iso-lead blocking fullback. Blue-collar worker. Leads by example. Quietly competitive. Determined short-yardage runner capable of finding a crease and slamming through the line. Has a special-teams temperament (has delivered knockout shots). Solid all-around production. Versatile, lines up all over the field (fullback, tailback, in the slot) and does everything well (can run, block, catch and cover kicks). Very intelligent and football smart.
