Round 6, No. 202: Fullback Sam Rogers
Who and where they actually drafted: Defensive lineman Pita Taumoepenu, No. 202
With fullback Bruce Miller gone, and we all know there is no way that Baalke would have ever signed Kyle Juszczyk to the same deal that Lynch did, there is a gaping hole at the position for the 49ers.
Literally, there is nobody on the roster who is a fullback. It is a need for the team, but Baalke waits until the latter portion of the draft to pull the trigger.
Virginia Tech’s Sam Rogers is who Baalke goes with, and he’ll have an inside shot at becoming the starting fullback for the 49ers. As well as lead blocking for Hyde and Perine, Rogers possesses the ability to be a productive receiver.
During his career, he amassed 802 yards and seven touchdowns on 77 receptions.
