Nick Easton is a 6-3 300 lb center out of Harvard who signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent. No word on what the 49ers gave up for Easton, but most likely a late conditional round draft pick. Here is some info from Pro Football Focus on Easton during the preseason.
New #49ers center Nick Easton led all centers in the preseason with a +9.1 overall grade including +7.7 run blocking.

The 49ers must have really liked what they saw out of Easton, cause we all know GM Trent Baalke hates giving up his coveted draft picks.
