The 49ers drafted Mike McGlinchey to start at right tackle. That’s the short-term plan. But offensive tackles drafted in the top 10 usually end up playing left tackle, which is where Joe Staley currently resides.
But Staley turns 34 in August and has two years remaining on his deal, so in all likelihood, McGlinchey will have Staley’s job by 2020.

Projects are fun to watch, write about and listen to (the NFL isn’t known for its variety of accents) in spring and early summer. But Labor Day weekend is the time of reckoning for international athletes and position-change experiments. Only a few make rosters. Others earn practice-squad slots. But most disappear and are forgotten as soon as games start to matter. For players like Mailata, the final cuts are the crossroads between being an NFL starter or a taproom trivia question in four years.
There is little on the line for Saquon Barkley through OTAs, training camp and the preseason. A Week 1 starting job and a heavy role in the offense is waiting for him in September. Barkley just needs to stay healthy, learn the playbook, Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey stay healthy, establish a rapport with veterans, stay healthy and…stay healthy. The Giants will probably help him on the first, third, fifth and sixth points by limiting his training camp workload and preseason carries.
Johnson also did not agree with the personnel moves Kelly made.
It was definitely exciting whenever he first came in, and we did some good things, Johnson said. Then we start getting rid of our best players. You’ve got DeSean Jackson, who can outrun everyone on the field. You’ve got Shady McCoy, who’s going to be one of the best running backs of all time. You just get rid of those guys just like that, and you set a tone. Players didn’t really like that.
It’s been remarkable how quickly Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson turned the Eagles around: Kelly left them a mess, and in two years they won a Super Bowl.
Greg Hardy, the former All-Pro defensive end who became one of the poster boy’s for the league’s problem with domestic violence, has booked a fight in the UFC 鈥?against another NFL player. Hardy will face Austen Lane in a UFC fight on June 12. Lane, a fifth-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2010, was a defensive end like Hardy, although Lane didn’t see the same kind of success in the NFL. Lane’s career spanned just 30 regular-season games.
