View all of San Francisco's selections from the 2015 NFL Draft

With the 244th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers select Florida OT Trenton Brown.

Brown played in 11 games in 2014 including six starts. He saw playing time primarily at guard after playing tackle in 2013. Prior to joining the Gators, Brown spent two years at Georgia Military College following high school graduation where he was named second-team NJCAA Football All-American in 2012.

Here are his strengths from his draft bio page.

"Has very long arms and meat hooks for hands. Can jar defender with the power in his hands and has very good upper-body strength. Uses his length and power to redirect when beaten. Despite his height and lack of bend, still finds a way to get under opponents' pads and root them off their spot. Potent drive-blocker who finishes. Generally stays engaged with his target. Uses his frame effectively and can play with toughness. Good feet for a man his size and conditioning has improved since he stepped foot on campus two years ago. Finds targets and mashes in short-pull game"

Brown stands 6-foot-8 and weighs 355-pounds. His combine results include a 40-yard dash time of 5.29 seconds, a vertical jump of 23.5 inches, an 97-inch broad jump and 20 reps on the bench press.

The 49ers newest pass protector has been busy getting himself in the best shape of his life, losing over 20 pounds between his appearance at the Senior Bowl and his weigh-in at the combine.

"I started the process right after I signed with my agent Drew Rosenhaus," Brown said. "In school, I didn't have the funds to eat which is why my weight was so high. Now that I have the funds and the means of income to eat healthy, I can maintain a healhty playing weight."

Brown said he was nervous that he wasn't going to get drafted with only a few picks remaining and is excited to be joining the 49ers.
