The final day of the 2018 NFL Draft has come to a close, and the San Francisco 49ers acquired five new rookies to culminate Day 3: Defensive lineman Kentavius Street, cornerback D.J. Reed, safety Marcell Harris, defensive tackle Jullian Taylor and wide receiver Richie James.
Take a look around the Twittersphere at the social media reactions to the 49ers Day 3 picks.
The San Francisco 49ers select Kentavius Street, DE, NC State. He racked up 20 tackles resulting in a defensive stop in 2017— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) April 28, 2018
#NCState has set a school record with 7 players picked in the draft. Six of those guys are from their 2014 recruiting class which was ranked No. 34 at the time. Only one signee in that class (Kentravius Street) was ranked above a 3-star. Great testament to eval AND development.— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) April 28, 2018
The 49ers add secondary help in D.J. Reed. He didn’t allow a reception longer than 30 yards in 2017, and surrendered a passer rating of 55.5 when targeted— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) April 28, 2018
Correction: Reed did allow one catch per 12.3 coverage snaps, but that was not highest in draft class (my apologies!) Allowed just a 55.5 passer rating last season. Played mostly at RCB last year, but would project to slot CB.— Jeff Deeney (@PFF_Jeff) April 28, 2018
Sort of got buried beneath the Hurst-Griffin back-to-back there, but the 49ers just made a terrific pick there with D.J. Reed.— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurkeNFL) April 28, 2018
The 49ers pick 6-1 Florida safety Marcell Harris in the sixth round. He missed 2017 with a torn right Achilles tendon.— David Lombardi (@LombardiHimself) April 28, 2018
Harris racked up tackle numbers as a Gator, so likely projects as a strong safety for the 49ers’ Cover 3 in the future.
Harris was a 4-star coming out of high school. 6-1, 216 pound safety. Sounds like he was a big-time player for Florida. Similar strategy to the Kentavius Street selection.— Dylan DeSimone (@DylanADeSimone) April 28, 2018
