    It turns out the 49ers didn’t have to go far to find their first-round draft pick.

    They selected the player many had earmarked for them, Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas, the second consecutive Cardinal player they have taken in the first round. Last year they chose guard Joshua Garnett with their second of two first-round picks.

    Before selecting Thomas, the 49ers traded down one spot with the Chicago Bears, who took quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the No. 2 selection. The 49ers received a third-round pick (No. 67), a fourth-round pick (No. 111) and a third-round pick in 2018 as well as the No. 3 pick this year. That means new general manager likely took the player he would have selected at pick No. 2 and added three more picks in the process.
