The 49ers made their fourth trade in two days, moving up to the 26th pick in the third round (No. 89 overall) to take Auburn's defensive end Corey Lemonier.

It took another trade with Green Bay, the team's second of the day, to take their third defensive player in four picks.

Lemonier was a top recruit coming out of high school for Auburn and was considered far more talented than his draft selection.

At 6-3 and 255 pounds, Lemonier was a three-year player for Auburn, amassing 98 total tackles and 17 sacks. His best season came as a sophomore in 2011 when he made 9.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. He earned first-team all-conference honors that year.

Lemonier spent the majority of his time with his hand in the ground in college, but will likely become an outside linebacker in the 49ers' 3-4 defense. The team already added former Florida State defensive end Cornellius "Tank" Carradine in the second round Friday. Although Carradine will likely join the rotation to the inside of the line.
