The 49ers today signed third-round pick Corey Lemonier to a rookie contract, leaving only one member of their 11-man draft class unsigned, first rounder Eric Reid.
Lemonier (6-3, 255) played defensive end at Auburn but is being converted to outside linebacker with the 49ers. With starters Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks nursing shoulder injuries, Lemonier promises to see plenty of action at the three-day minicamp that begins Tuesday.
Lemonier, veterans Parys Haralson and Dan Skuta, and second-year players Darius Fleming and Cam Johnson, are competing for spots on the team. Fleming also has been asked to play inside linebacker. He tweaked his surgically repaired left knee during last week's OTA practice, and his status this week is unknown.
The 49ers also signed tight end/fullback Jason Schepler and parted ways with rookie fullback Alex Debniak, who was waived/injured. Debniak played at Stanford.
