The San Francisco 49ers signed first-round draft pick Eric Reid to a four-year deal on Tuesday. 

According to the Silicon Valley Mercury News via the Associated Press, the development means the 49ers have signed all of their 11 draft picks. Reid, a safety who spent his collegiate career at Louisiana State, was drafted 18th overall by San Francisco in the 2013 NFL Draft. 

The 49ers traded their first and third-round picks to the Dallas Cowboys in order to obtain the 18th spot which they used to select Reid. He is expected to be considered for a starting spot at free safety after free agent Dashon Goldson signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Reid played in three seasons for the LSU Tigers, finishing with 199 tackles, six interceptions, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, 11 pass breakups and 4 1/2 tackles for loss. 

According to 49ers.com, Reid is a two-time All-SEC Honor Roll selection. He also became just the second LSU safety to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.  

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, per the Silcon Valley Mercury News report.
