Report: Aldon Smith turns himself in


Feedback on the San Francisco 49ers by the AP Pro32 panel
(ranking in parentheses):


Clark Judge (, four): Defense matters, and 49ers
proved it.

Wealthy Gannon (CBS Sports activities/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 4): Wonderful D and
far better this 12 months in passing game

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 4): Defense will be hard-hitting
and strong again, although offense must have far more pop.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 4): Nasty and physical on each sides
of ball.

John Lynch (Fox Sports activities, 4): This team is legit and has true shot
this year Dominant defense with eleven starters returning and complicated
Harbaugh-led offense that positive aspects from full offseason a lot more
confident Alex Smith and some explosion (Randy Moss) to help Vernon
Davis on offense

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/, four): Defense
dominates and Alex Smith finally gets to run same offense two many years
in row.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, five): Overachievers in 2011? In your encounter,
says Jim Harbaugh. Okay, coach. We're purchasing.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 5): If Alex Smith can play like he
did a 12 months in the past, 49ers will be amid best in NFL.

Chris Berman (ESPN, five): Following all, 49ers could have simply been
in Super Bowl.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, five): NFL's subsequent Baltimore Ravens
on defense. Patrick Willis is next Ray Lewis.

Alex Marvez (, seven): All eleven starters return from one particular
of NFL's stingiest defenses. Question now is whether or not quarterback
Alex Smith and rest of offense can give sufficient complementary

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning Information, 9): Jim Harbaugh worked
miracles as rookie coach, but 49ers won't be sneaking up on anybody
this season.
