The 49ers, who took long looks at the most prominent quarterbacks in this year’s draft, ended up taking a more obscure one — C.J. Beathard from Iowa.

San Francisco traded back into the third round with Minniesota to take Beathard at pick 104, which had been a Vikings’ compensatory pick. In return they sent the 109th pick (fourth round) and 219th (seventh round) to Minnesota.

Beathard is the grandson of former Washington general manager Bobby Beathard. C.J. Beathard (6-2, 219) threw for 1,929 yards, 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season in Iowa’s pro-style offense.
