With the final pick in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers made a move for the fututre, selecting guard Brandon Thomas out of Clemson. Once considered a top offensive line prospect, Thomas tore his ACL during a pre-draft workout. As a result, his stock plummeted and he’ll have to start the 2014 season for the 49ers on the PUP list.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the selection:

Great to see Brandon Thomas picked up by the 49ers at the end of the third round. Nice spot where he can "redshirt" like Lattimore did.

Really happy to see Brandon Thomas get drafted. I was afraid his injury would scare teams from picking him when he deserved to be drafted

We clearly have the best draft this year, Carlos Hyde from OSU and Chris Broland and Brandon Thomas from Clemson #49erGang
