49ers add a quarterback, select C.J. Beathard


  • With the 40th pick of the third round (104th overall), the 49ers selected QB C.J. Beathard from Iowa.
  • Beathard finished with a 77.7 percent adjusted completion percentage with a clean pocket, the 10th-best mark of any QB in the draft class.
  • Beathard is a two-year starter, grading out much better in 2015 than last season’s underwhelming performance.

    Just wondering if this kid is related to Pete Beathard who was a top draft pick back in 1964.
