49ers sign nine of 10 draft picks

The 49ers announced this week the signing of all their draft picks, except one.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The San Francisco 49ers have gone through the formalities of signing nine of their 10 picks from the recent NFL Draft.

The lone exception is first-round selection Arik Armstead, the defensive lineman from Oregon taken with the 17th-overall pick. The 49ers moved back two slots, from 15, in a trade with the Chargers to take Armstead, netting an additional fourth-round selection and fifth-round pick in the 2016 draft.

That fourth-round selection ended up being tight end Blake Bell, who was one of nine selections to sign this week. Armstead is reportedly still attending school at Oregon and is unable to officially join the team until the end of his spring quarter.

The team's rookie minicamp begins this Friday. Last week, San Francisco announced the signing of nine undrafted free agents.

The list of signed draft picks:

Jaquiski Tartt, S, Samford (second round, pick 14, 46 overall)
Eli Harold, OLB, Virginia (third round, pick 15, 79)
Blake Bell, TE, Oklahoma (fourth round, pick 18, 117 - from San Diego)
Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina (fourth round, pick 27, 126)
DeAndre Smelter, WR, Georgia Tech (fourth round, pick 33, 132 - compensatory)
Bradley Pinion, P, Clemson (fifth round, pick 29, 165 - from Indianapolis)
Ian Silberman, OL, Boston College (sixth round, pick 14, 190)
Trenton Brown, OL, Florida (seventh round, pick 27, 244)
Rory Anderson, TE, South Carolina (seventh round, pick 37, 254 - compensatory)
