Source says that 49ers will select A.J. Hawk over Vernon Davis

Apr 26, 2006 at 2:07 PM--


According to Scout.com, a league source has indicated that the San Francisco 49ers will select Ohio State linebacker A.J. Hawk over Maryland tight end Vernon Davis if both players are available at the No. 6 selection in the first round.

It is unknown how reliable this "league source" is and rumors often run wild during the week leading to the NFL Draft as the media attempts to guess what teams will do.

While Hawk would fill a more immediate need, Davis has been described as a player that the team can't pass up on. The addition of Davis would add another big and fast target for young quarterback Alex Smith.

It has been well known that these two players have been at the top of San Francisco's wish list. However, most figured that it was in the reverse order with Davis as the 49ers' first choice.

While the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to head on the road for the start of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host Kyle Shanahan's squad. Naturally, the last thing the Cowboys want to see is a takeover of their home stadium, which is what we saw at SoFi Stadium during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. On Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan and acknowledged that he has no control over who buys the tickets. However, he boasted about the Cowboys having the highest resale ticket prices in the NFL right now, which he feels could help limit the number of opposing fans for the playoff matchup.

The San Francisco 49ers had the usual heroes step on Sunday against the Rams. The game would not have been won, and the playoffs would not have been clinched, without the great contributions of several great players like Deebo Samuel, Jimmy Garoppolo, Arik Armstead, Elijah Mitchell and Brandon Aiyuk. Samuel and Aiyuk were brilliant, of course. Mitchell and Garoppolo both showed a lot of toughness, grit and poise when the 49ers really needed to keep drives going. And Armstead was dominant. It was certainly his best game the last two seasons. But there were a handful of players who helped the 49ers get into the postseason, that we probably wouldn't have expected to come up big, like they did. Sure, you had Emmanuel Moseley with an interception in his first game back from

Deebo Samuel called himself a "wide back" this past week. That's because he's a wide receiver that can play running back and do it well. The Dallas Cowboys are experiencing this first hand in the NFC Wild Card playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers. With his 49ers holding onto a 16-7 lead in the third quarter, cornerback K'Waun Williams picked off Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, getting the football back for the offense. On the next play, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo handed the football off to Samuel, who made some magic happen and ended up in the end zone for a 26-yard
