Team could trade with the Raiders – if Young is available

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers' vice president of player personnel Scot McCloughan is not ruling out the possibility that the 49ers and Oakland Raiders could end up speaking during the NFL Draft Saturday, April 29, especially if Texas QB Vince Young is still available when the 49ers pick at No. 6. "If he does fall to six, we're going to field some calls, and they (the Raiders) are going to know that," McCloughan said. "If that's the guy they've pinpointed, they're not going to want to miss out on him." The Raiders would likely have to part with their first- and fourth-round picks (No. 101 overall) to get the No. 6.

Team sees J. Lewis as an offensive lineman

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports the San Francisco 49ers are projecting George Mason basketball player Jai Lewis as an offensive lineman, not a tight end.

Steve Young credits great coaching, Deebo Samuel for 49ers' turnaround, believes team can win it all

Things didn't look so hot for the San Francisco 49ers in October. The team was coming off a four-game losing streak, and their lofty postseason hopes looked more like wishful thinking. Then the season turned around. The Niners went on a run, and in the final week of the regular season, clinched a playoff berth. That run, paired with the upset win against the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys in the opening round of the playoffs, has given the 49ers a lot of confidence. The team believes it can beat anyone. However, the next task isn't an easy one. San Francisco will have to knock off the Green Bay Packers this weekend at Lambeau Field if it hopes to reach the NFC Championship Game for the second time in three seasons. Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young wouldn't



49ers' DeMeco Ryans hopeful Nick Bosa will be available vs. Packers: 'We definitely need him out there'

The San Francisco 49ers defense is a different beast with pass rusher Nick Bosa anchoring the edge of the defensive line. Unfortunately, Bosa left Sunday's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys with a head injury. He is currently in the concussion protocol as the team prepares for this weekend's playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers. The 49ers are at a bit of a disadvantage thanks to the NFL scheduling the Divisional Round playoff match on a Saturday. That means Bosa has one less day to clear the concussion protocol. You can never predict the recovery timeline for head injuries. Concussions impact everyone differently. Defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans' job on Saturday night would be a whole lot easier with Bosa in the lineup. Naturally, he is hopeful



Steve Young envisions 49ers playoff win, jokingly looks past Cowboys

On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys meet in the playoffs for the first time in 27 years. There are five other playoff games in the Wild Card round, but this matchup may be one of the most talked-about this weekend. Half of Fame quarterback and 49ers legend Steve Young has a good feeling about his former team's chances against the Cowboys. He joined KNBR this week to discuss the much-hyped bout between old rivals. "I've got a good feeling [about this game]," Young said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "I've got a feeling the Cowboys might come out fast, but there's just a grittiness [to the 49ers]. I think [the Cowboys are] going to get beat down. Then we get to go renew all the Packer games from '95, '96, '97, '98. Then we



What Steve Young said about Jimmy Garoppolo's injuries, 49ers' chances vs. Packers

Jimmy Garoppolo was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, the San Francisco 49ers' second of the week. That's good news for the quarterback's availability against the Green Bay Packers this weekend. Not that there was ever any doubt that Garoppolo would play. He is pretty banged up, though. Not only has Garoppolo been dealing with the pain of throwing with a torn ligament in his right thumb, but now, he is dealing with a right shoulder sprain. Saturday's playoff game will be a challenge. San Francisco is going against the top-seeded Packers, but Green Bay is well-rested while the 49ers have to prepare on a short week. Oh, and that game is at frigid Lambeau Field—at night. Garoppolo suffered his shoulder injury during Sunday's playoff win over the
