Selection: San Francisco 49ers select Oregon defensive end DeForest Buckner.

Analysis: Buckner is a massive human being with shocking measurements - including hands that measure in larger than a standard sheet of paper

Coming in at 6-foot-7, 291-pounds, Buckner wreaked havoc on Pac-12 opponents during his time in Eugene, Oregon. With plenty of power off the edge, Niners fans will be ecstatic to have him coming off the edge for years to come.

The Tennessee Titans have traded up to No. 8, switching spots with the Cleveland Browns.
