The 49ers hope the similarities between Jean Francois and Dial, a fifth-round pick from Alabama, extend to the NFL. Jean Francois, a seventh-round pick from LSU, performed his backup duties so capably that he signed a four-year, $22 million deal…Extra Point:
Although Dial's initial role will be as a plug, and that role is needed with the 49ers defense - his athleticism may allow the 49ers to do some creative things with him coming off the end position. He will know his role, but my bet is that the 49ers will try and stretch him before determining whether he is a one trick pony or not.
