49’ers Sign Two Draft Picks

ProFootballWeekly.com reports that the Niners signed two draft picks today, the first two picks of the 2009 NFL Draft to sign:

The 49ers signed two of their draft choices Thursday, as they became the first draft picks in the league to sign contracts since No. 1 overall selection Matthew Stafford signed with Detroit prior to the draft. The Niners signed LB Scott McKillop, a fifth-round pick, and DE Ricky Jean-Francois, a seventh-rounder, to four-year contracts. “It says a lot about these young men that they have made it a priority to get their contract negotiations out of the way early,” said 49ers general manager Scot McCloughan. The 49ers have five other draft choices remaining to be signed, including their first-round selection, WR Michael Crabtree of Texas Tech.
