By Alabama News Network

The San Francisco 49ers selected Auburn defensive end Corey Lemonier with the 88th pick in the NFL draft, moving up five spots after their second deal of the day with the NFC rival Green Bay Packers.
   
This selection further upgrades San Francisco's pass rush as they looked to fill voids on the defensive line.
   
Lemonier, who skipped his senior season to enter the draft,  had 5.5 sacks last season after earning coaches' first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors with 9.5 sacks as a sophomore.
   
The 6-foot-4, 246-pound Lemonier played in 34 career games, making 24 starts. He finished his Auburn career with 98 tackles, 17 sacks, 24 tackles for loss and 33 quarterback hurries.
