49ers selected South Carolina WR Bruce Ellington with the No. 106 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Ellington (5-foot-9 1/4, 197) is Andre Ellington's cousin and has similarly explosive athleticism, running 4.45 at the Combine with a 10-foot broad jump and 39 1/2-inch vertical. He doubled as a point guard on the Gamecocks' basketball team, and finished his football career with 106 catches for 1,586 yards (15.0 YPR) and 16 touchdowns. He also has experience returning kicks. Ellington does not profile as a future fantasy star, but is a tough, sure-handed slot receiver with balance and acceleration that jump off the screen. In terms of rookie-year snaps, Ellington will have a hard time earning action behind Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson, and Quinton Patton. This is a pick for special teams and the future. Sat, May 10, 2014 12:43:00 PM
