SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers added speed and potential to their defensive backfield and talented size and depth to both sides of their line Saturday in the NFL draft.
The Niners selected talented but troubled LSU cornerback Rashard Robinson with their first pick of the day in the fourth round. He brings outstanding speed and a tall, wiry frame to a secondary looking for help, but he also sat out last season after being suspended by LSU coach Les Miles during his sophomore season of 2014.
Robinson was one of three cornerbacks selected among San Francisco's 11 picks. The 49ers also took Mississippi State's Will Redmond in the third round and Western Kentucky's Prince Charles Iworah was the team's final pick in the seventh round.
