The San Francisco 49ers maneuvered within the third round before addressing their need at cornerback with Chris Culliver, taken 80th overall.

Culliver, from South Carolina, is a former receiver with good height for the position (6 feet). He also suffered from injury problems in college, including a torn pectoral.

"I like him; he is a press corner," draft analyst Rob Rang said. "One of the concerns I had was he was a corner-safety tweener. He is athletic enough to play corner, but wasn't as physical as you would always like. I thought Seattle might have some interest in him as well, but I thought he might go in the fourth round."

The chart shows which picks the 49ers have after swapping third-rounders with Jacksonville and picking up the 182nd overall choice.
