The 49ers entered the weekend with 12 picks and they ended up making 12 selections. Despite signing safety Antoine Bethea to a four-year, $23 million deal, general manager Trent Baalke used the No. 30 selection on strong safety Jimmie Ward. That’s one year after using a pick on Eric Reid, too. It was surely a surprise, but this defense is fueled on hard hitting, impact-setting players. Ward fits that mold. Another surprise was drafting Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde, who is considered the best overall running back in this year’s class. The 49ers now go six deep at the running back position. With Frank Gore entering the final year of his deal, the writing could be on the wall.
