Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat and ProFootballTalk.com have both said that the San Francisco 49ers have struck a deal with offensive tackle Joe Staley, the No. 28 overall selection in the 2007 NFL Draft.
Maiocco states that "The two sides need to work out the language of the contract, which is expected to be a five-year deal."
ProFootballTalk.com states that "the deal represents an 8.2 percent increase over the package given to the 28th overall pick in the 2006 draft, Jags tight end Marcedes Lewis."
Maiocco also states that the team is hopeful to have all of their draft picks signed by July 29th, the start of training camp. Linebacker Patrick Willis and defensive end Ray McDonald are expected to be the last of the draft picks signed.
