News, notes and reader questions about the San Francisco 49ers

Mini-camp starts with free agent list

The 49ers finally announced their undrafted free agents and .... drum roll, please ... there's really not anyone of note.

The only name I recognized was that of Akron quarterback Luke Getsy. Reporters were allowed to watch combine practices for the first time this past February, and I was assigned to follow Getsy. The impression I got was that he had a so-so arm and so-so accuracy. However, he is supposed to be very bright and could challenge Shaun Hill for the role of third quarterback.

The other signees are: DE Zach Anderson (Louisville), TE Zac Herold (Nebraska-Omaha), CB Sammy Joseph (LSU), P Ken Parrish (East Stroudsburg), DE Darius Sanders (Oregon) and WR Dominique Zeigler (Baylor). The team also added first-year PK MacKenzie Hoambrecker (Northern Iowa).

Bryant Young did not take part in today's minicamp because he is attending the funeral of former teammate Kevin Mitchell. Larry Allen also is excused. The following players won't participate because of injury: Jonas Jennings (shoulder), Justin Smiley (shoulder), Eric Heitmann (leg), Delanie Walker (shoulder), Darrell Jackson (turf toe) and Shawntae Spencer, who apparently is dealing with bone spurs in his feet.

Here are the new numbers for the 2007 draft class: Patrick Willis (52), Joe Staley (74), Jason Hil (89), Ray McDonald (91), Jay Moore (58), Dashon Goldson (38), Joe Cohen (76), Tarell Brown (25) and Thomas Clayton (35).


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.
