49ers select Fordham OT Nick Zakelj with No. 187 overall pick


The 49ers added depth on the offensive line with their sixth-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. 

With the No. 187 pick, San Francisco selected tackle Nick Zakelj out of Fordham University. 

Taking Spencer Burford with the No. 134 pick in the fourth round, the 49ers double down on the tackle position two rounds later.

In four seasons at Fordham, Zakelj allowed just 22 pressures and five sacks for the Rams.

The 6-foot-6, 316-pound tackle has both the physical traits of a tackle and a guard. Just like Burford, the 49ers might elect to try him at both positions this summer.
