After addressing their primary need (safety) with their first pick, the 49ers filled another need by drafting defensive lineman Cornellius "Tank" Carradine with the 40th overall pick.
They moved back from No. 34 and also picked up a third-round pick in 2014 along with the No. 216 pick in this year's draft.
A first-team All-ACC selection at Florida State, Carradine was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award, given to the nation's top defensive end. Carradine torn his right ACL in November, but said he expects to be ready for the season.
--With the departure of Delanie Walker to Tennessee in free agency, the 49ers filled the void with Rice tight end Vance McDonald with the No. 55 overall pick.
They sent a sixth-round pick and the No. 61 pick to move up. McDonald, a converted wide receiver, often played in the slot. He caught 119 passes for 1,504 yards and 15 touchdowns in 48 games for the Owls.
--The 49ers moved up via trade with the Packers for the second time on Day 2 to draft their second edge player -- a college defensive end likely to convert to outside linebacker -- Auburn's Corey Lemonier.
San Francisco gave the Packers the No. 93 and a seventh-round pick (No. 216) to get him with the No. 88 overall pick (third round). He got off to a good start in the 2012 season -- five sacks in the first four games -- but wasn't effective later in the season.
QUOTABLE: "My mom gave it to me when I was a kid. When I was a kid, I had this little army tank always with me. I could never go anywhere without that army tank. I just had to have it with me, and I used to always push people over, try to run over people and always had my army tank with me. So, that's how I got the nickname Tank." -- Tank Carradine on how he got his nickname.
