Greetings from Indianapolis, the site of the NFL’s Annual Poking and Prodding of Very Large and Skilled Young Men Convention.
It is, of course, the NFL Combine and the 49ers will take center stage today on the first day of media availability at Lucas Oil Stadium. General manager Trent Baalke will take the podium at 8:15 a.m. (PST) and head coach Jim Harbaugh will follow at 9:45 a.m.
As far as players, who will arrive daily by position groups to meet the media scrum, it’s not a big day from a Niners’ perspective. Today’s position groups: offensive linemen, kickers, punters, long snappers and tight ends. The odds of the 49ers selecting a player at one of those positions in the first several rounds are currently hovering at Infinitesimal.
Here’s a breakdown of the media availability for the week:
Today: offensive linemen, kickers, punters, long snappers and tight ends
Friday: quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers
Saturday: defensive linemen, linebackers
Sunday: defensive backs
