Two more draft picks agree to contract terms

The 49ers reached deals with two more draft picks today, meaning that three of the seven selections likely will be completed today as players arrive for a three-day rookie minicamp. The deals were struck with fifth-round pick Darius Fleming, an outside linebacker, and sixth-round pick Trenton Robinson, a safety, according to their agents. Those deals were first reported by Sirius XM NFL radio's Adam Caplan.

The 49ers previously had reached a deal with another sixth rounder, Jason Slowey, who is expected to play center for the 49ers. All the deals are for four years. The remaining players to sign are receiver A.J. Jenkins, running back LaMichael James, guard Joe Looney and the final pick, outside linebacker Cam Johnson.

The 49ers will hold a three-day minicamp starting Friday. Players arrive today.
