The Niners announced Thursday they have reached a four-year deal with defensive back Jimmie Ward, selected 30th overall in this month's draft. The team also signed linebacker Chris Borland, the second of a trio of third-round selections by the team, to a four-year pact.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the deal is worth over $7 million. Last year's No. 30 pick, St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree, signed a four-year, $7.03 million contract that included a $3.492 million signing bonus. Expect Ward to receive a similar pact.

The 49ers have now struck deals with nine of their 12 draft picks.
