49ers | Help On the Way

Matt Maiocco reports for the Press Democrat the San Francisco 49ers may have netted three starters with their first three picks in the NFL Draft. They were able to fill vacancies at three spots with LB Jamie Winborn of Vanderbilt in the second round and RB Kevan Barlow of Pitt in the third round to go along with first round pick, DE Andre Carter of Cal. Barlow may be the early favorite to take over at RB. Hope remains for RB Garrison Hearst, but, as coach Steve Mariucci said, they are "not counting on him." GM Bill Walsh believes Carter can rush the passer in the mold of past 49ers greats Fred Dean and Charles Haley.
