The Niners acquired Miami’s choice that came via San Diego after sending the 56th pick to Denver only minutes earlier. San Francisco added a potent runner to complement Frank Gore and Co. on Day 2 of the draft Friday to join Thursday’s first-round pick Jimmie Ward.

Earlier Friday, the 49ers addressed a big need on the offensive side by acquiring wide receiver Stevie Johnson from the Buffalo Bills for an undisclosed 2015 draft pick.

San Francisco traded the 61st pick to Jacksonville.
