49ers sign two draft picks to contracts

That didn't take long.

The 49ers began chipping away at a 12-man to-do list by signing two members of their draft class to four-year deals. The first to have their contracts completed were fifth-round pick Aaron Lynch from South Florida and seventh-round pick Kaleb Ramsey from Boston College. The 49ers and Jets tied with a league-high 12 picks in the recent draft.

Lynch (6-5, 255 pounds) will play outside linebacker in the team's 3-4 scheme. Ramsey (6-3, 285) will play defensive end. Ten years ago, teams used to wait until the start of training camp to sign their draft classes. Salaries are slotted under the new collective bargaining agreement, and some teams began signing players this week.
