49ers sign DE Will Tukuafu

I believe it is a depth signing who will also be used in a few jumbo sets too.

Yup, he's in, follow him to the ball. When he's out, get ready for a pass.

For the most part, yes. But that also sets up a pass when we really need it. Usually our jumbo package is pretty predictable in this regard, but we have had success on the rare occasion we decide to throw out of it.
Harbs: our jumbo package is not working Greg..
Roman: i don't think we have enough jumbo in our jumbo package Jim..
Harbs: hmm what do you suggest?
Roman: remember that 300 pound fullback we cut?
Harbs: ya, I liked him but won't it makes us more predictable?
Roman: ya, but we could always line him up out wide...
Harbs: good thinking Greg, make it happen.

I think you see Dixon in on run plays, and maybe you see Vernon Davis in that Delanie Walker role more often.

The problem is Miller could play any formation and it wouldnt tip off the type of play. Were already predictable, and now itll be even easier to tell. Thankfully we have the talent to beat people physically regardless of whether they guess right.

I don't think Dixon will tip it off either. He should be just fine as a lead blocker.
I think Dix can block most LBs, but not top notch LBs and DTs like Miller did
still think dixon gets used more

Yup. If Dixon can hold up in the run/pass blocking department, they shouldn't have a problem tipping their hand. I think he should be able to adequately catch the ball out of the back field, so if he can pick his blocks up, i think they can somewhat make up for the loss of Miller and replicate his production.
the fullback needs to just be a lead blocker.

we have too much talent to depend on the fullback to do more than just block.
