SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) – The San Francisco 49ers have boosted their running game depth by selecting Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde with the 57th pick in the NFL draft in the second round after trading down.

NFL DRAFT COVERAGE

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.
