Lack of fullback depth

Question: I have been following the free agent signings and draft with great anticipation of making the playoffs this year. We seemed to have added depth at every position except one: fullback. Who is on the depth chart behind Moran Norris?

Mike, Citrus Heights

Answer: The only other fullback on the roster is Zak Keasey, who is certainly not a banger like Norris. Look for the team to add someone to push Norris after June 1. If they don't, and if Norris gets hurt, the 49ers certainly would use more two-tight-end formations and could even use Vernon Davis as an H-back.
