UPDATE: Michael Oher has not yet visited the 49ers. He is scheduled to visit. * * * Each NFL team is allowed 30 visits from draft-eligible players leading up to the draft. The 49ers got the process started two days ago (will get the process started in the near future).
The 49ers added a fourth Smith to the roster today, as they agreed to terms on a two-year contract with veteran offensive tackle Marvel Smith, a league source said.
The 49ers will unveil their new uniforms at the team’s draft party Saturday, April 25, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Free agency has slowed to a crawl and the draft is a month away.
Talks are heating up between the 49ers and free-agent offensive tackle Marvel Smith, as both sides are getting more excited about the possibilities of a contract agreement.

Coach Mike Singletary said he wanted to create a certain “mindset” with the first minicamp, and that he did on the first day with the circuit drills.

The question was sort of vague and pretty innocuous, but Shaun Hill turned it into the quote of the day.
Coach Mike Singletary said he wants receiver Isaac Bruce to play for the 49ers this season, but they are giving him plenty of time to make a decision. Singletary said he hopes to have his answer by the first of April.
The 49ers hit the practice field Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. for their first “voluntary” minicamp.
