Heneghan not long for Niners?

ProFootballTalk.com had this to say about the 49ers' own Lal Heneghan:

The addition of Lal Heneghan to the San Francisco front office has not been regarded as, as we hear it, a successful move.

The opinion held by some is that Heneghan, a former employee of the NFL league office, brings too much of a league-office mentality to the operation (whatever that means), and that he is not a classic "football guy."

Heneghan's primary expertise is the salary cap, not the identification and/or evaluation of football talent.

He previously was the cap guy with the Browns, but was abruptly fired by former coach Butch Davis in 2004. Heneghan was hired by the 49ers in April 2006.

This morning, after Justin Fields of Ohio State took the top spot for a week, Mac Jones of Alabama once again became the betting favorite to be selected No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. He had been there for weeks following the Niners' trade on March 26. Fields' odds improved following his second workout, this time in front of head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. Oddsmakers once again favor Jones, though. One NFL executive, along with many fans, can't really envision it. San Francisco surrendered a lot of draft capital to move up from No. 12. Is Jones worth sacrificing multiple first-rounders and a third-rounder? "I don't think
