49ers sign rookie G Brandon Thomas

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers have signed guard Brandon Thomas to a four-year deal.

The team announced the move Friday.

Thomas was taken 100th overall out of Clemson with the last of San Francisco's three third-round picks. He played in 49 games in college, starting 30 games at tackle and nine at guard. He earned first-team All-ACC honors last season.

Thomas is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee suffered during a workout last month.
