The Washington Redskins traded the 44th pick in the NFL Draft to the San Francisco 49ers, who selected Washington wide receiver Dante Pettis.
Pettis projects as a slot wide receiver and a punt returner at the NFL level. The 49ers felt strongly enough about him to move up in the draft to get him, and he is joining a wide receiver depth chart that features Pierre Garcon, Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor, and Aldrick Robinson. Look for him to enter training camp competing for the starting slot wide receiver job.
