49ers sign fifth-round draft pick Parys Haralson

Jun 19, 2006 at 5:21 PM--


According to 49ers.com, the San Francisco 49ers signed draft pick Parys Haralson on Monday. Haralson, an outside linebacker that played defensive end at Tennessee, was the seventh pick in the fifth-round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

Including Haralson, the 49ers have signed five of their nine draft picks. Marcus Hudson, Melvin Oliver, Vickiel Vaughn and Delanie Walker have all agreed to contracts with the team.

This only leaves Michael Robinson, Brandon Williams, Manny Lawson, and Vernon Davis to be signed.

From NFL.com's Draft page:
Haralson is a very good athlete who can defeat offensive tackle pass blocks consistently with his variety of pass-rush moves, closes quickly on the quarterback and makes hard hits on the quarterback. He is a very active and competitive defensive end who consistently goes all out on every snap and has the playing speed to chase down running plays in pursuit. Despite his lack of size, he is stronger than expected and if he bulks up by adding 10-15 additional pounds, he will be very strong at the point of attack. Overall, Haralson is no doubt going to need to bulk up and become more consistent in his get-off at the snap, but weight can be added and he will become a good all-around defensive end for a team that plays a 4-3 defense. As a rookie, he will be a backup who will contribute mostly as a pass rusher and on special teams, but in his second or third season, he will become a good starting defensive end. Additionally, if Haralson goes to a team that plays the 3-4 defense, he will make an immediate impact rushing the quarterback and will become a dangerous starting rush linebacker within a season.

Why the 49ers drafted a running back in the third round

By Rohan Chakravarthi
May 6

With their first 2022 NFL Draft selection not coming until No. 61 overall, the San Francisco 49ers were required to remain patient without a first-round selection for the first time in the Lynch-Shanahan era due to last year's trade-up to select quarterback Trey Lance with the third overall pick. With that first selection, the 49ers took USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, who some analysts considered a fringe first-round talent, making it shocking that he was still available near the end of the second round. However, with their second selection at pick No. 93, the 49ers surprised many, drafting LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who not only was a player at a position of low value, but also a player projected to go potentially one or two rounds later. So, why did

The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have signed tight end Troy Fumagalli to a one-year deal. To make room on the roster, the team waived tight end Garrett Walston. Fumagalli was among the tryout players at the 49ers' rookie minicamp. Something noteworthy: The tight end's left index finger was amputated due to a condition known as amniotic band syndrome. "It happened at birth, so I don't know any better," Fumagalli told ESPN in 2016 (h/t Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle). "If you were to ask me if I imagined a finger on my left hand, I feel like that's in the way of things. I wouldn't want it

Since the start of free agency and the NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers have added more talent to their roster to hopefully get the team over the hump in its quest for a sixth championship. With training camp set to open at the end of July, let's take a quick look at how the 49ers will look on offense. Next week's article will focus on the defense and special teams. Quarterback At the start of training camp, the Trey Lance era will officially begin. Since the offseason began, Lance has worked with the other skill position players to hone his timing and offensive rhythm with his pass-catchers. Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the roster, but he is unlikely to get on the practice field as the team works to trade the veteran quarterback. The move will
