    49ers DST dominates for third straight week

    The 49ers DST forced four turnovers for a second straight week and posted its third consecutive dominant performance in the Week 6 win over Arizona. San Francisco's defense also scored for the second straight week, this time on a safety by rookie linebacker Corey Lemonier. Safety Eric Reid had an interception and a fumble recovery. Corner Carlos Rogers picked off Carson Palmer, too, and linebacker NaVorro Bowman recovered a fumble. San Francisco gave up 403 total yards and allowed 5.2 yards per carry, but compensated with a slew of big plays. The 49ers DST has a good chance to stay hot in Week 7 at Tennessee.

    Lemonier heads to San Francisco

    The 49ers selected Auburn defensive end Corey Lemonier with the 88th pick in the NFL draft, moving up five spots after their second deal of the day with the NFC rival Green Bay Packers. This selection further upgrades San Francisco's pass rush as they looked to fill voids on the defensive line. Lemonier, who skipped his senior season to enter the draft, had 5.5 sacks last season after earning coaches' first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors with 9.5 sacks as a sophomore. The 6-foot-4, 246-pound Lemonier played in 34 career games, making 24 starts. He finished his Auburn career with 98 tackles, 17 sacks, 24 tackles for loss and 33 quarterback hurries.
