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.
GM Scot McCloughan pulled up a chair and sat in front of a dozen newspaper (and online) scribes in the media trailer today. He bobbed and weaved through a flurry of questions.
A 49ers executive has left the organization, presumably to accept another job, the team confirmed today.
GM Scot McCloughan might be the next person in the 49ers’ organization to feel the heat if the franchise’s string of seasons without a playoff appearance continues. But he said he is NOT approaching this draft like the 49ers just need a sudden bump to be a Super Bowl-contending team.

Tonight — coincidentally, it was right around bed time for the kids — I took part in a live chat with the fans who gathered at 49erswebzone.com and 49ersparadise.com. Thanks to my wife for handling the tucking-in duties without me. Here are some excerpts from the chat. The full transcript can be read at 49erswebzone.
The latest report is one that Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji will certainly not dispute.
The 49ers have a lot of reasons to want to bail out of the No. 10 overall pick – in excess of $14 million reasons, in fact.
Today is the last day draft-eligible prospects are allowed to visit with teams prior to the April 25-26 draft. The 49ers expect a turnout in the mid-30s for their local pro day at the team’s practice facility in Santa Clara.
The 49ers’ signing of outside linebacker Parys Haralson to a four-year contract extension was an essential move. He is the only pass-rusher on the team. But it should not change the 49ers’ approach for next week’s draft.
The 49ers used some of their cap space this morning to sign outside linebacker Parys Haralson and kicker Joe Nedney to contract extensions, the club announced.
John Madden, the ground-breaking and often-imitated second man in the booth, has decided to retire from broadcasting, NBC Sports chair Dick Ebersol announced this morning.
The 49ers will have to remain in wait-and-see mode through the first 90 minutes of the draft on Saturday, April 25. It would be pretty shocking if the 49ers traded up, but a trade back is a definite possibility.
