Report: 49ers agree to deal with sixth rounder Slowey

The 49ers have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with sixth-round pick Jason Slowey, according to Sirius XM NFL reporter Adam Caplan, who cites Slowey's agent. Slowey, the second of two sixth-round picks, played at Western Oregon and is being eyed as a center.

In recent years the 49ers have been one of the most aggressive teams in the league when it comes to signing their picks quickly. No other deals with 49ers draft picks have been consummated at this point, but their agents said contact has been made and they anticipate agreements falling into place quickly. Around the NFL, two second-round choices have agreed to terms, including Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill, who has a deal with the Jets.

The 49ers will see most of their rookies, including 18 undrafted free agents, next week. The team has a rookie minicamp May 11-13.
