SAN FRANCISCO (AP)

The San Francisco 49ers selected linebacker Nick Moody out of Florida State with their sixth-round selection in the NFL draft Saturday.

The 49ers continued to add prospects to fill voids on their defense with their fifth selection of the draft on that side of the ball. The versatile Moody is a candidate for multiple roles after starting at both safety and linebacker during his college career.

Moody spent three seasons at safety with the Seminoles before moving to outside linebacker last year. At 6-foot-2 and 237 pounds, he also has potential to move to inside linebacker in San Francisco's 3-4 defensive scheme and could become a physical presence on special teams.
