The San Francisco 49ers traded up in the third-round of the 2021 NFL draft. They sent a pair of fourth-round picks to the Rams to jump to No. 88 while holding onto No. 102 in the third round. They moved up to pick Ohio State RB Trey Sermon.
49ers get: Pick No. 88
Rams get: Pick Nos. 117 and 121
Sermon spent his first three college seasons at the University of Oklahoma where he racked up 2,076 rushing yards and 22 rushing touchdowns on 339 carries. He also caught 36 balls for 391 yards and three touchdowns.
He transferred to Ohio State last season and put together his best year. Sermon racked up 870 rushing yards on just 116 carries with four touchdowns.
Sermon is just the second running back drafted by the 49ers during the John Lynch-Kyle Shanahan era. Utah’s Joe Williams was their fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft.
