pick and used that pick for another linebacker. Has your head exploded?"With the No. 148 pick in the NFL Draft Arik Armstead Jersey , the San Francisco 49ers draft Arkansas LB Dre Greenlaw. This was the pick the team traded with the Denver Broncos. They 49ers met with Greenlaw, so this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. The 5-foot-11, 237-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 seconds and had a 33.5 inch vertical leap. The senior finished with 80 tackles, 6 1/ for losses, two sacks and two interceptions as a senior. Greenlaw should provide depth behind Fred Warner and Kwon Alexander, while being a core special teams player.Alexander is currently rehabbing an ACL tear and while he should be ready to go when training camp starts, the 49ers clearly need some options in case something should arize with his recovery. With the trade of Dekoda Watson, the 49ers have Warner, Alexander, and Elijah Lee. Given the issues of injuries last year, a fourth body may be appropriate. The trade to make this pick possible was linebacker Dekoda Watson to the Broncos. So for trading a linebacker, the 49ers get a younger linebacker in essence. Highlights: Scouting reports: NFL.comCBS Sports1. First round: No. 2 overall Nick Bosa Y.A. Tittle Jersey , Defensive end, Ohio State2. Second round: (36 overall)Deebo Samuel, Wide receiver, South Carolina3. Third round: (67 overall)Jalen Hurd, Wide receiver, Baylor4. Fourth round: (110 overall) Mitch Wishnowsky, Punter, Baylor5. Fifth round: (No. 148) Dre Greenlaw, Arkansas6. Sixth round: (No. 176)7. Sixth round: (183 overall)8. Sixth round: (198 overall) A Rhode Island town council has voted to ask its departments to refrain from purchasing Nike products, one of a handful of local governments or agencies that have called for boycotts in recent weeks.The North Smithfield Town Council passed the resolution on a 3-2 vote Monday evening, Council President John Beauregard said. The resolution is nonbinding.Beauregard, a former state trooper Frank Gore Jersey , is upset with Nike's decision to use former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in an ad campaign. The town's administrator didn't know of any specific Nike products that municipal departments are currently using.The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island said the town could be held legally and financially liable for violating the First Amendment and told members of the council: "Just don't do it."The mayor of a New Orleans suburb recently rescinded a similar directive based on an attorney's advice.Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn, a Republican, had issued a memo saying that Nike products could not be purchased for use at city recreation facilities. It also required the parks and recreation director to approve all athletic purchases by booster clubs using the facilities. The order prompted a protest that included three members of the NFL's New Orleans Saints and hundreds of others.And Mississippi's public safety chief said over the weekend that state police would no longer buy Nike products, saying that Nike doesn't support law enforcement and the military. It wasn't immediately clear how much gear the state police agency buys from Nike, though the department has bought shoes, shirts and tactical training uniforms from the company. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant lauded the decision.A Nike spokesman said Monday he couldn't comment on the various governmental actions.Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and social injustice.Beauregard said he proposed taking a stance in North Smithfield because he feels Kaepernick has been disrespectful toward police. He said it's not about kneeling during the anthem.In a statement released after the vote, the ACLU of Rhode Island described the resolution's passage over the objects of residents who opposed it as "shameful.""By attacking the right to peacefully protest and refusing to recognize the racial injustice prompting it, the resolution shows a disdain for both freedom and equality," the statement said. "Rhode Island is better than this."
