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.

Rumor: Jets turned down 1st-round pick from 49ers for Sam Darnold

There is a rumor from Cecil Lammey of The Fan 104.3 and Football Guys that the New York Jets turned down a first-round pick offered by the San Francisco 49ers earlier this offseason for quarterback Sam Darnold (h/t to Matt Audilet of The Spun). Of course, this was when the Niners sat at No. 12 overall, before trading up last month to the No. 3 spot. What on Earth would keep Joe Douglas and company from jumping at an offer like that? Lammey states that there were some concerns surrounding Zach Wilson's shoulder, and the Jets wanted to wait until the former BYU quarterback's pro day to evaluate the shouder's status. Wilson's pro day was on March

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper expanded his latest mock draft to two rounds, and it features the San Francisco 49ers adding prospects on both sides of the football. The team traded from No. 12 overall to the No. 3 slot on March 26. The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to select Trevor Lawrence with the top selection, and the New York Jets are projected to add Zach Wilson at No. 2 overall. That's exactly what Kiper has the two teams doing within his mock draft, leaving San Francisco with its choice of quarterbacks in Mac Jones, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance. Kiper has the



49ers add QB, CB, bolster O-line and D-line in Dane Brugler 7-round mock draft

Dane Brugler released his latest mock draft for The Athletic, and it goes seven rounds deep. The popular opinion is that the San Francisco 49ers will select former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones at No. 3, and the draft analyst follows that narrative. "Coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers have seen or are scheduled to see Jones, Justin Fields and Trey Lance throw in person as the organization does due diligence on the top available passers," wrote Brugler. "My initial reaction after San Francisco traded up to No. 3 was Lance, but most of the buzz points to Jones. Ultimately, any of the three quarterbacks could be the pick



Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"
