49ers’ interest in Ahmad Brooks has dampened

Jun 22, 2006 at 10:24 AM--


According to a Q & A with Dennis Georgatos of the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers interest in former Virginia LB Ahmad Brooks may be decreasing. 49ers personnel director Scot McCloughan was scheduled tp be on hand when Brooks works out for scouts Thursday, June 22, in Charlottesville, Va.

It appears the 49ers' interest has dampened in using a pick in the supplementary draft on Brooks or any other player. The team's personnel chief, Scot McCloughan, says the 49ers want to hang onto their picks for next April's draft. If they use a pick in the July 13 supplementary they give up that same pick in the April draft. After looking into it, it appears the 49ers have decided the risk versus reward is too high for them in the supplementary draft.

Brooks will be in the NFL Supplemental Draft July 13. Brooks was (and may still be) scheduled to fly to the Bay Area on June 28 and have a physical with the 49ers the next day.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo joined KNBR on Wednesday morning as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to head on the road to face his former squad, the New England Patriots. Garoppolo spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons there learning behind future Hall of Famer Tom Brady under the tutelage of Bill Belichick. The Patriots head coach spoke with 49ers reporters on Monday and praised Garoppolo. "I mean, he's a quality player," Belichick said on a conference call. "The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you know, reflected their confidence in him going forward to lead their team, won the NFC Championship last year behind him. So, I think that all speaks for itself." During Wednesday's radio interview, Garoppolo was asked about Belichick's comments

Kyle Shanahan still has confidence in Trent Taylor, explains reduced opportunities

Trent Taylor was a training camp star for the San Francisco 49ers in August. That hasn't carried over into the regular season for the fourth-year wide receiver. Taylor has just six receptions for 45 yards through seven games this season. He's hauled in just one reception for eight yards since Week 3. Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and was asked about Taylor's reduced production. The coach explained that the team still has faith in the receiver, but other factors have produced fewer opportunities. Shanahan made it clear, though, that Taylor is not dealing with an injury, as was the case over the last two seasons. "Yeah, Trent is healthy," Shanahan said. "I definitely could find more ways to [get him more involved in the offense]. I've got a

Robert Saleh believes 49ers' ability to develop players can help offseason cornerback conundrum

Richard Sherman, Jaquiski Tartt, K'Waun Williams, Jason Verrett, Ahkello Witherspoon, Dontae Johnson, and Jamar Taylor. Those are all San Francisco 49ers defensive backs who are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next offseason. Emmanuel Moseley and Ken Webster are scheduled to become exclusive-rights free agents, while Marcell Harris will be a restricted free agent. It may have been more efficient to rattle off the names of those who will be under contract. The 49ers defensive backfield will likely look very different in 2021. The team has some young talent that it is high on, like Tim Harris and recently-claimed Parnell Motley. How does San Francisco balance trying to patch together an effective secondary amid injuries while evaluating
