SANTA CLARA -- Five wide receivers got drafted before the 49ers got their chance at No. 30. Their choice: defensive back Jimmie Ward.
General manager Trent Baalke didn't sound too concerned that so many wideouts vanished before the 49ers' slot.
"We feel good about the wide receiver corps all the way through the draft," Baalke said. "We feel there's value to be had at every level.
"We felt all along it was one of the positions that had some depth to it."
The 49ers have five picks to make Friday, including two in the second round (Nos. 56 and 61) and three in the third round (Nos. 77, 94 and 100).
Five wide receivers went in the first 28 picks: Sammy Watkins (No. 4, Bills), Mike Evans (No. 7, Buccaneers), Odell Beckham (No. 12, Giants), Brandin Cooks (No. 20, Saints) and Kelvin Benjamin (No. 28, Panthers).
Beckham, Baalke admitted, was admired greatly by the 49ers.
"We certainly liked him as a football player," Baalke said.
Among top wideouts still remaining: Davante Adams (Palo Alto High, Fresno State), Cody Latimer (Indiana), Jordan Matthews (Vanderbilt), Marqise Lee (USC), Martavis Bryant (Clemson) and Allen Robinson (Penn State).
"All the players that went in the first round are extremely good players," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "Our scouting staff, our coaching staff, scouted it very similar and I thought the strategy to make our pick when it was our time to pick worked out for us."
