Team interested in Lelie; but Denver wants too much in return

May 18, 2006 at 5:09 PM--


Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the San Francisco 49ers are interested in Denver Broncos WR Ashley Lelie, but the 49ers are not willing to give up what Denver wants, either a first-day pick or a player of commensurate value.

Supplemental draft coming in July

Gil Brandt, of NFL.com, reports the NFL will hold a supplemental draft July 13. Rules of the supplemental draft stipulate that it has to take place at least 10 days prior to opening of first training camp. Draft order is determined by a weighted system that is divided into three groupings. First comes the teams that had six or fewer wins last season, followed by non-playoff teams that had more than six wins, followed by the eight playoff teams. The paperwork hasn't officially been filed yet for this year's supplemental draft, but there are at least two players who will get a close look from scouts around the league, LB Ahmad Brooks (Virginia) and DE Jason Berryman (Iowa State).

13 emotionally-influenced 49ers observations (that I'm probably making too quickly)

The San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions 41-33 on Sunday, and at times, were dominant. That's the good news. The bad news? Rather than blowing out the Lions, like it looked like they were going to, they let the team from the Motor City back into the game, almost losing the lead. The worst news? More injuries, including a season ending injury to their best cornerback, Jason Verrett, as well injuries that knocked Raheem Mostert and Dre Greenlaw out of the game. The 49ers need Greenlaw and



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Deommodore Lenoir: 'Nothing's too big for him'

San Francisco 49ers rookie cornerback Deommodore Lenoir has been thrown into the fire early in his NFL career. Veteran defensive back Emmanuel Moseley missed the 49ers first game due to an injury. Lenoir filled in as the starting corner opposite Jason Verrett, and played 90 snaps in the team's opening day win over Detroit. He was very solid. And now with Verrett out for the season with a torn ACL, the rookie defensive back will be counted on even more. And his coaches are confident he is up to the task. Head coach Kyle Shanahan, who spoke about Lenoir to the media a couple of times this week, said, "I've loved his mentality," he told Matt Maiocco, of NBC Sports Bay Area. "He doesn't say a lot, he's a



Kyle Shanahan wants Brandon Aiyuk to earn his spot back, says receiver isn't in 49ers' doghouse

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning and threw cold water on the heated rumors that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is in his doghouse. The second-year player had an impressive rookie campaign last season, and high expectations prefaced his sophomore NFL season. In Week 1, Aiyuk split playing time with Trent Sherfield and wasn't targeted against the Detroit Lions. It had nothing to do with the young receiver being in Shanahan's doghouse, though. The coach wanted to dispel those rumors and once again explain Aiyuk's reduced role. "No. It's not a doghouse. It's just a pretty simple thing," Shanahan said. "Trent Sherfield has played at a very high level every single day for the entire training camp. Aiyuk



Steve Young wants 'to know what's happening' with 49ers' Brandon Aiyuk

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has been a curious case early in this season. The second-year wideout played only a handful of snaps in the first game, while being targeted only once. In the 49ers' second game, he played more snaps, but was targeted only twice. He caught one of those passes for a short gain. Add Hall of Famer Steve Young to the list of people wondering what is going on with the young wide receiver. Young didn't hold back in speaking of head coach Kyle Shanahan's usage of Aiyuk when the former 49ers quarterback joined KNBR Radio on Wednesday. "He's a tremendous weapon with the speed, he's shown such great things," Young said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks Show. "So what is going on? Why can't we know? I want to know.
