Jimmy Garoppolo can rest tonight. His other perimeter liner is officially a 49er, starting a full week before training camp.
San Francisco rightly signed Mike McGlinchey to his rookie contract on Sunday night, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, informed by a source about the situation. The four-year contract has a value of $ 18,341,876 million and is fully guaranteed, Pelissero added.
McGlinchey was the # 9 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Notre Dame product was a consensus All-American on the left tackle in 2017, but has worked on the other side this summer. It's where he projects to start the season, as six-time pro-pitcher Joe Staley remains one of the league's better hide-and-seekers.
Mammoth McGlinchey, listed at 6-foot-8, 309 pounds, started the right fit for the whole 2015 campaign, before moving to the left for his last two college seasons. His selection was an extension of the $ 137.5 million investment the 49ers made in Jimmy G. San Francisco last year relied on a committee led by Trent Brown in the right tackle, which is a sore point since Anthony Davis retired after the 2014 season was.
McGlinchey's signature leaves Brown's quarterback Baker Mayfield (1), Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (3), Brown's cornerback Denzel Ward, Bill's quarterback Josh Allen (7) and Bears linebacker Roquan Smith (8) as the remaining unsigned top 10 players .
