49ers will not break Branch’s fall

Apr 20, 2007 at 7:07 AM--


According to Don Banks of SI.com, the 49ers will not break Michigan DT Alan Branch's fall should he last past the top 10.

From SI.com:
And just FYI, if Branch does indeed last past the top 10, my sources say the No. 11 49ers will not break his fall, even though they could use a defensive tackle. Nebraska defensive end Adam Carriker continues to look like a good bet in San Francisco.

SI.com also states, "Despite his physical talent, some scouts question Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch's intensity."

The team is attempting to sign the All-Pro to a contract extension beyond his rookie deal, of which he is in the final year. How do you pay someone like Kittle, though? Yes, he is widely considered to be the NFL's best tight end. Yes, he is one of the game's most entertaining young stars. Kittle is also the 49ers' best receiving threat and one of their best blockers. It's like having an extra offensive lineman out there who happens to be capable of hauling in a deep
