Update 4:15: 49ers got an offensive lineman. In his post-draft press conference, John Lynch said not taking an o-lineman was a vote of confidence in Colton McKivitz. Joey Fisher is one strong dude and should be a nice developmental piece.

Colletto an interesting player who had plenty of interest. During his college career, he played QB, LB and FB at various points.
Pat’s Update: This is from Texas DB D’Shawn Jamison. I think this means he’s becoming a Niner.
