The line on linebackers

Question: Notice you keep showing LB as a last issue. Since no word is leaking out on current team happenings, what current LBs are making impressions on you and the Niners thus far - attitude-wise, aggressiveness, sideline to sideline, etc? And is Parys Haralson totally involved in sessions?

- Sammy Moore Jr., Sacramento

Answer: Parys Haralson is indeed taking part in the offseason workouts (which, by the way, are different than OTAs) and is in the running to land the starting strong-side linebacking job. Since most teams run to the strong side (the side with the tight end), the linebacker has to be stout enough to hold up at the point of attack, and Haralson is built like a fire hydrant. As for new additions to the linebacking corps, the 49ers have been sniffing around Texas defensive end Brian Robison, who would be converted to linebacker if he were drafted by San Francisco.

- Matt Barrows


Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
