The 49ers have locked in Jimmy G's 6-foot-8, 315-pound rookie tackle. The team announced the Mike McGlinchey contract on Monday morning. McGlinchey, the No. 9 pick in this year's draft, reached a four-year deal with the 49ers that will pay him $18.3 million, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Media.

The Notre Dame standout was a consensus All-American at left tackle in 2017 but has been training on the opposite side with the Niners. With six-time Pro Bowler Joe Staley entrenched on the blindside, McGlinchey is on track to play as the club's right tackle.
