Pro Football Weekly reports the following:

Mike Reinfeldt update

We hear it won't be long before the Niners add a heavyweight executive with NFL experience to the team's front office who will have significant power within the organization. At the top of the list of prospective hires — we hear the team has had talks with at least four candidates — is Seahawks vice president/football administration Mike Reinfeldt, a key behind-the-scenes contributor to Seattle's success in 2005.

Rumph back at corner

When Niners DB Mike Rumph returns from his plantar-fascia injury this offseason, word is he'll do so as a cornerback. The team tried to convert Rumph into a safety last season but concluded that the former first-round pick was unable to develop the vision needed for the position.

Rookie advice from Alex Smith

Niners QB Alex Smith told PFW at the Super Bowl what advice he would have for a young quarterback like Matt Leinart or Vince Young as a highly touted rookie: "Your rookie year is so unique, and every situation is different. But as much coverage as the NFL gets, there are going to be bumps in the road, and people are going to start talking about you and different things. And of course, those guys have had so much success that most of the talk is good about them. But it will be important to just put everything aside and stay the course, stay with the grind, stay late and put the time in. And especially early, keep your mouth shut. You're a rookie. It's kinda good if you go unheard from or unseen for a little while. Just put in your dues. You're going to take some bumps in the road, but it'll pass."

John Lynch provides update on Jalen Hurd after 49ers pass on drafting a WR

The San Francisco 49ers did not draft a wide receiver in the 2021 NFL Draft. The team had selected at least one wideout in each of the previous 19 drafts, dating back to 2002. That streak is dead. Most assumed the 49ers might add a receiver this year, potentially bolstering the depth behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk. One of the receivers from San Francisco's 2019 draft class, Jalen Hurd, has yet to step onto the field for a regular-season game, landing on injured reserve in each of the past two seasons. He suffered an ACL injury during training camp last year. General manager John Lynch spoke with reporters after the 49ers made their eighth and final draft pick and provided an update on Hurd. "Jalen's rehab is going well," Lynch shared. "We're

The 49ers used their final pick in the 2021 NFL Draft (Round 6, pick 194) to add more running back talent to the roster in Elijah Mitchell of Louisiana. The selection may have been a bit of a surprise given the fact the 49ers drafted Ohio State running back Trey Sermon in Round 3 and also have three veterans of note on the roster in Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and Wayne Gallman. But Mitchell (5-11, 215) is a fascinating addition to the 49ers and will be an interesting player to follow in the months ahead, as you're about to see.
