49ers add another TE, pick Oklahoma’s Brayden Wills at No. 247 overall
The 49ers added another tight end in the draft. This time they selected Oklahoma’s Brayden Willis with the 247th overall pick.
Willis was connected a lot to the 49ers in the pre-draft process. He’s a good athlete at 6-3, 241 pounds, and he caught 75 balls for 998 yards and eight touchdowns in 58 college games.
He could wind up projecting long term as a fullback with third-round choice Cameron Latu already in the mix as a tight end. The 49ers don’t have a ton of quality depth at the TE spot though so it’s not out of the question both of them make the team as rookies.
