The 49ers on Tuesday signed wide receiver Bruce Ellington to a four-year contract, the club announced.

The last remaining 49ers draft pick to sign is center Marcus Martin, who coincidentally also happened to be the last player attending the NFL draft to be selected.

Ellington's contract was slotted to include a signing bonus of approximately $474,000 on his four-year, $2.694 million contract. Ellington, a fourth-round draft pick from South Carolina, was chosen with the No. 106 overall selection.

He caught 49 passes for 775 yards and eight touchdowns. Ellington, who also was a starter on the South Carolina basketball team, is expected to compete with LaMichael James for the 49ers' return duties.
