The 49ers stood pat at No. 30 overall in the 2014 NFL draft and selected Northern Illinois defensive back Jimmie Ward.
Here are the reactions from some familiar names out there:

Admittedly, in the moments after 49ers' selection of S Jimmie Ward, I was skeptical. But more I think about it, logic of the pick is sound.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) May 9, 2014
Baalke on Ward: "He plays well week in and week out. I don't remember watching a bad game on him." #49ersDraft— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) May 9, 2014
