49ers ink third-round pick Lemonier

The San Francisco 49ers signed rookie outside linebacker Corey Lemonier, the team's third-round pick in this past April's draft, to a four-year contract on Monday.

The Niners took Lemonier, a two-time All-SEC performer for Auburn, with the 88th overall selection. The 6-foot-3, 255-pound converted defensive end recorded 17 sacks, 24 tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles over three seasons with the Tigers.

With Lemonier now under contract, the lone member of San Francisco's 11-player draft class yet to sign is first-round safety Eric Reid.
