According to Don Banks of SI.com, the 49ers will not break Michigan DT Alan Branch's fall should he last past the top 10.

From SI.com:
And just FYI, if Branch does indeed last past the top 10, my sources say the No. 11 49ers will not break his fall, even though they could use a defensive tackle. Nebraska defensive end Adam Carriker continues to look like a good bet in San Francisco.

SI.com also states, "Despite his physical talent, some scouts question Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch's intensity."
