Rookie minicamp begins today

The 49ers' rookie minicamp is already underway with players going through a walk-through before a practice begins at 12:30. The three-day session is designed for rookies and young players. In other words, linebacker Mark Washington figures to be here, but receiver Isaac Bruce does not. We're told that the team will have at least four QBs for the minicamp: Shaun Hill, Alex Smith, Nate Davis and Kirby Freeman. No word yet whether Damon Huard is in town. The 49ers signed 12 undrafted rookie and fifth-year linebacker Marques Harris yesterday. They signed a kicker, Alex Romero, today.

Here are some jersey numbers for the newcomers:

QB Nate Davis: 7
QB Kirby Freeman: 9
WR Michael Crabtree: 15
S Curtis Taylor: 28
RB Glen Coffee: 29
CB Terrail Lambert: 30
RB Kory Sheets: 30
CB Jahi Word-Daniels: 35
