Niners Ink First Round Pick LB Aldon Smith to a Four-Year Deal

In a move that will get him in camp in time for the teams first workout, the 49ers have announced that they have signed first round draft pick LB Aldon Smith to a four-year contract.

He was the 7th overall pick in the 2011 draft, and is expected to be a starter at the weak outside linebacker position. Smith got many of his sacks as a defensive tackle in the University of Missouri’s 4-3 defense. He’ll have a long learning curve transitioning into a 3-4 outside linebacker.
