Niners Snag South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw with the 14th Pick in 2020 NFL Draft

The Niners went defense in round one of the NFL Draft on Thursday, as the team took South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw with their first pick in the draft.

Nick Wagoner of ESPN talked about the move to get Kinlaw:

The 49ers traded DeForest Buckner to the Colts for the 13th pick and, after a small move down, used that pick to land his replacement. Niners coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have not been shy about putting resources into building a dominant defensive line. Lynch has talked often about “strengthening a strength,” and their strength is the defensive line. Kinlaw will be asked to replace Buckner at the 3-technique spot as he joins a loaded defensive line. As a bonus, San Francisco will have Kinlaw under team control at a fraction of the cost of Buckner

CBS Sports gives the Niners a B- for the pick:
