We all know that Jim Harbaugh likes to get involved in practice. He likes to get involved in player personnel workouts/tryouts, too. Mostly he uses his arm, being that he was a quarterback in the NFL. The players generally say he can still "chuck it".

Thursday, however, Harbaugh took to another role: he replaced Andy Lee as the holder on place kicks in 49ers OTA's, as tweeted by David Akers.

This seems to fit with the theme of these - the first OTA's under Harbaugh due to the NFL lockout last year - which has featured versatility among the players...now it's extending to the coaches, perhaps, too.

Will Tukuafu has played fullback, as has DeMarcus Dobbs. Cory Nelms has played some receiver, and All Pro linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman have returned kicks.

Coming soon: Ian Williams at QB?

Maybe not...
