"Harbaugh Watch" begins for San Francisco 49ers fans

Jan 3, 2011 at 9:01 PM--


With Stanford's season over after a 40-12 win over Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl, all football eyes in the Bay Area are on the Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh has been named as the San Francisco 49ers' top choice for head coach after the firing of Mike Singletary.

The team has not even named a general manager yet but team Vice President of Player Personnel Trent Baalke and Mike Lombardi may be the frontrunners. It may come down to whoever has the best chance at landing Harbaugh.

Many 49ers fans also hope that Harbaugh's presence in San Francisco may help the team land Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck in the 2011 NFL Draft. Although, that would be highly unlikely without a major trade to move up from the team's current 7th spot.

With their Orange Bowl win, Stanford finished their 2010 season 12-1 under Harbaugh.

Other teams expected to make a big push for Harbaugh include the University of Michigan and even the Denver Broncos.

'It begins and ends with accuracy': Jeremiah explains why he thinks 49ers will draft Mac Jones

What is it that possibly has San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan so enamored with Mac Jones of Alabama? So much so that he might pass on Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The latter two are seen as having higher ceilings in the eyes of most analysts. That includes NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah. If the decision were up to Jeremiah, he would pick Lance before Jones. He would even pick Fields instead of the former Crimson Tide quarterback. "Kind of going through the whole process of both those guys, that would be my choice, between those two, because I do think they expand the playbook," Jeremiah told Rich Eisen on The Rich Eisen Show. "And to kind of use a phrase you hear more and more in the NFL right now, you get

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he hopes to see stadiums across the league filled with fans once again. Last season, there were no or limited fans in venues due to the pandemic. For players, the strangeness of playing in empty stadiums could be a thing of the past. Defensive end Nick Bosa only got to play one game at Levi's Stadium last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury during Week 2. He caught up with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin and shared that he hopes to see fans again in 2021. "It would mean a lot, really," Bosa said during a virtual one-on-one. "I only got one game at home without the fans, and it was really weird. I love to look back at the film and TV

How will the 49ers' depth chart look as the NFL Draft moves on? That's a question we'll attempt to answer here. It's a bit difficult at this time of the year to accurately project a depth chart, given how many players are new to the team, how many will come and go in the weeks ahead, and how many positions may shift down the line. There's an awful lot of guesswork going on here, but we'll give it a try based on who is on the roster at the moment. The 49ers will release their first unofficial depth chart at some point in the weeks or months ahead. We'll be making updates to this chart as the NFL Draft concludes and more players are added to the 49ers. Be sure to check back for updates. Offense QUARTERBACK 1.
