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.
