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.

Vernon Davis on 49ers TE George Kittle: "His skill set is unmatched"

Vernon Davis remains the all-time leading receiver among San Francisco 49ers tight ends. His 5,640 receiving yards over his 10 NFL seasons with the team ranks sixth in 49ers history. Hot on his tail is current tight end George Kittle, who has amassed 4,489 receiving yards in five years. Kittle is likely just a couple of seasons away from surpassing Davis in the 49ers record books. Davis was at training camp in Santa Clara this past week and was asked about Kittle. Below is what one great 49ers tight end had to say about the other. "George Kittle is unbelievable," Davis told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. "He's a wonderful talent. Every skill position, especially the tight end, they have different attributes. George Kittle, he has his ability to be able to



49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo in talks with New York Giants, per source

For months, San Francisco 49ers fans have been awaiting closure surrounding the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, and finally got some last week when head coach Kyle Shanahan declared that Lance was the guy moving forward at the position. Even more closure around Garoppolo could be on its way soon, as Marco Martinez of the "49ers RedZone" podcast confirmed to me on Thursday that the veteran quarterback's agent has indeed been in talks with the New York Giants, who have had themselves a bit of a quarterback dilemma after electing to bypass on Daniel Jones's fifth-year option and signing veteran Tyrod Taylor to a two-year deal in the offseason. Remember, Garoppolo currently has one year and $24.2 million left on his contract, but it's

The spotlight was on quarterback Trey Lance heading into Friday night's preseason opener for the San Francisco 49ers, but it was a slew of newcomers that stole the show in a 28-21 win over the Green Bay Packers. Not that Lance didn't deliver in his limited opportunities. Lance played on two possessions in the game and led the 49ers to 10 first quarter points, completing 4-of-5 passes for 92 yards while also rushing once for seven yards. But with a number of starters on the sidelines for the duration of the game, several rookies stood out in the win for the 49ers, including wide receiver Danny Gray, who had two catches for 99 yards and one touchdown, and cornerback Samuel Womack, who had two interceptions, while free agent addition Ray-Ray McCloud chipped in with four catches



49ers rookie RB Ty Davis-Price eager for NFL debut vs. Packers

NFL preseason games don't mean much to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. If it were up to him, he'd replace them with joint practices, feeling those are more beneficial. For rookies, though, preseason games can mean a lot. It's not just an opportunity to showcase yourself. It's a chance to get acclimated to what it's like playing in an NFL game. The 49ers open their three-game exhibition schedule on Friday against the Green Bay Packers. It's the only preseason game they will play at Levi's Stadium, and rookie running back Ty Davis-Price (prefers Ty versus Tyrion) can't wait. "I'm looking forward to it, most definitely," Davis-Price told reporters after Wednesday's practice. "First NFL game, I don't know what to expect, to be honest with you. Just
