Green still has a place

Question: Given the recent pickups in the draft, what is Roderick Green's future with 49ers?

- Dwayne, Houston

Answer: It's a good question, Dwayne, considering Green has sort of been lost in the shuffle with all the free-agent signings and draft picks. However, I don't think the 49ers have forgotten how Green had 4 1/2 sacks last year despite minimal playing time. He's one of the few players on the team who consistently can get after the quarterback and I expect to see him competing for playing time at the "Will" linebacker spot this weekend. If it's different than what I expect, I'll report back.

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.
