Mississippi State Bulldogs cornerback Will Redmond has just been selected by the San Francisco 49ers!

Redmond joins defensive tackle Chris Jones as Mississippi State's day two picks on Friday, as State's cornerback is the first DB to head to the league since Darius Slay and Johnathan Banks emerged back in 2013.

Redmond amassed five picks in his three years at Mississippi State and will be a welcomed addition to the Niners' secondary when he hits the field later this fall.

Congrats to Redmond and best of luck to him in the NFL!
