49ers sign third round draft choice, running back Glen Coffee

And then there was one.  The 49ers announced today that they have signed third round draft choice Glen Coffee to a four year contract.  I haven't found the details yet, but will add them when I get a chance.  Here are some quick background details from the 49ers.

Coffee (6-0, 209) was an All-SEC selection and 2008 Doak Walker Award semi-finalist with the Crimson Tide. While at Alabama, he played in 35 games (17 starts), finishing his career with 2,107 rushing yards on 410 carries with 14 touchdowns and 42 catches for 351 yards and two touchdowns.

Coffee tallied 1,383 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008. His rushing yardage tied Shaun Alexander as the second-best total in school history, while his 5.9 yards per carry in 2008 ranked sixth all-time. In 2007, he played in 9 games rushing for 545 yards and four touchdowns, along with 18 catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. Coffee was granted a medical redshirt in 2006 after recording 179 rushing yards and 91 receiving yards as a true freshman.

And that leaves Michael Crabtree.  Rookies report tomorrow so things are definitely getting tight.
