05/05/2015 - A closer look at the 49ers' 10 picks: Round 5/165 -- Bradley Pinion, P/K, 6-5, 229, Clemson...Pinion left Clemson a year early in hopes of being the first kicker selected. He was. That's a credit to his versatility. He excels at pinning opponents deep with his directional punting, and making them start from the 20-yard-line with his ability to sail kickoffs out of the end zone. The latter might be where he cracks the 2015 lineup. Veterans Andy Lee (punter) and Phil Dawson (field-goal kicker) would seem to have a lock on their jobs. - The Sports Xchange
