Niners rookies and selected veterans hit the practice field this afternoon. Very few of the veterans are in attendance this weekend, as the youngsters get a chance to take the bulk of the practice repetitions during the minicamp.
The 49ers picked up an additional 2010 first-round draft pick last week, and GM Scot McCloughan said today it is possible the club will not still own it when next year’s draft rolls around.
The 49ers today signed veteran outside linebacker Marques Harris, an unrestricted free agent who played his first four seasons with the Chargers. The club also announced the signings of 12 undrafted free agents.
The rookies – drafted and undrafted — began arriving this afternoon at the 49ers’ practice facility in Santa Clara.
The 49ers have a lot of salary-cap room and two first-round picks for 2010. It only goes to reason that they would investigate all the possibilities for immediately improving the roster.
UPDATED: 8:19 a.m. (PT), Thursday * * * Here is a list of undrafted free agents who have agreed to contracts with the 49ers, according to their agents.
A couple days after the NFL draft, here are some thoughts on 49ers-related topics . . .
UPDATES: Agreements with undrafted free agents at the bottom. Here is the article that will appear in Monday’s paper, “Niners give offense a lot of attention.” And here’s a rundown of offseason changes with all the NFC teams, beginning with the 49ers. (Just in case you were wondering if I did any work this weekend.) * * * How did the 49ers do in this weekend’s draft?
The 49ers selected a big free safety, Curtis Taylor of LSU, with their first of two seventh-round picks.And with their final pick, No. 244 overall, the 49ers selected LSU defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois.
The 49ers have picked in six rounds. Why haven’t they picked an outside linebacker? Why haven’t they picked an offensive tackle?
The 49ers selected Bear Pascoe, the tight end from Fresno State, with their sixth-round pick at No. 184 overall.
For the first time since the first selection of 2005, the 49ers have invested a draft pick in a quarterback.
The 49ers selected Pitt inside linebacker Scott McKillop with in the fifth round with the No. 146 overall pick.
The 49ers just made their pick in the third round, selecting RB Glen Coffee (Alabama) to act as a complement to Frank Gore.
It’s time for my second mock draft. Today, we’re going to look at the third round, which begins bright and early at 7 a.m.
UPDATED WITH A LOOK AT PANTHERS DIFFICULT 2009 SCHEDULE. * * * The 49ers traded their pick in the second round – and their pick in the fourth round – to the Panthers for a first-round selection in 2010.
Welcome to draft day at 49ers headquarters at 4949 Centennial Boulevard here in lovely Santa Clara.
There’s more than 12 hours before the official start of the NFL draft, which means my mock draft will be accurate for a little more than 12 hours.
The 49ers have nine scheduled picks in the draft. GM Scot McCloughan promised the team will not trade up from No. 10, but they might trade back to acquire more picks. But, then, the 49ers might also trade up later in the draft.
We can probably agree that heading into the 2005 draft, the 49ers had the worst roster in pro football.
