201 NFL Draft order: 49ers secure final pick of the sixth round!

The 2015 NFL season is officially a wrap, and that means the run to the 2016 NFL Draft is truly on for all 32 teams. The Denver Broncos win in Super Bowl 50 means they will pick No. 32 in each round (31 in the 1st round with New England stripped of their pick), and the Carolina Panthers picking No. 31. That completes the draft order for the first three rounds leading up to the eventual comp picks. This final setting of the draft order actually has some impact on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers dealt tight end Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos this season, and one of the picks they...

'World champion Vernon Davis' still sounds a little weird

It was not a pretty year for Vernon Davis, but the one-time San Francisco 49ers tight end walks away from it as a Super Bowl champion. He got very limited work on Sunday, and really for much of the latter half of his time in Denver. But he still gets a ring and the winning team playoff share. It's not too shabby. Vernon will become a free agent after this season, and has said he wants to continue playing. I am very curious to see how much interest Davis draws in free agency. Teams are more inclined to look for young, cheap options, and I could see it taking some time for Vernon to land a...

Which free agent tight ends should the 49ers consider?

Vance McDonald isn't the answer. Garrett Celek probably isn't the answer. Fooch always has a dozen different plans to cover free agents and I'm sure we'll revisit this topic dozens of times, but for now I want to talk about the San Francisco 49ers and the tight end position. The 49ers have a bunch of young tight ends and Garrett Celek after parting ways with Vernon Davis this past season and I tend to think the team will try and find an option on the free agent market as opposed to in the 2016 NFL Draft. Blake Bell and Busta Anderson are both entering their second year in the NFL and both...

Super Bowl 50 media day: Transcript of Vernon Davis's comments at Opening Night

The former San Francisco 49ers tight end took part in media day on Monday evening. We've got a full transcript in which he discussed the 49ers, his own motivation, and returning to the Bay Area. (on his thoughts of comments that his age is a factor in his performance) "When the opportunity comes and I do some of the things I've always done, people will start to second guess themselves. It's cool, it's fine, I like it. It's perfect. I've been here before." (on if comments about his age add motivation) "It's not really about the motivation. I'm always motivated from talking to guys with...

Vernon Davis thinks he was traded to Denver 'for a reason'

The Super Bowl circus is in town, and San Francisco 49ers fans get a little something extra out of it with the arrival of Denver Broncos tight end Vernon Davis. The 49ers traded Davis to the Broncos in early November. It was clear by then that the 49ers were not going anywhere. Davis was struggling to do much of anything in San Francisco, and with free agency looming for the aging vet, there was no reason to keep him around. Over the weekend, Davis chatted with the Broncos team site about returning to the site of the vast majority of his career. He happened to arrive back in the South Bay...

Vernon Davis, Denver Broncos using 49ers locker room

Super Bowl 50 is 11 days away, and the various logistics are being sorted out at Levi's Stadium. The NFL's Director of Events briefed media on a variety of topics, including locker rooms, sidelines, and uniforms. The Denver Broncos are the home team for this game due to a rotation. The AFC gets home status for even-numbered Super Bowls, and the NFC gets home status for odd-numbered Super Bowls. As such, the Broncos will be dressing in the San Francisco 49ers locker room on game day. That means Vernon Davis will get a familiar looking locker room for the Super Bowl! The Carolina Panthers...
