49ers report: Strategy and personnel

Mike Rumph, the 49ers' first pick in the 2002 draft, is moving back to cornerback, the position at which he entered the league. Last year, the new 49ers coaching staff tried to convert him to free safety, but after two games, they discontinued the experiment and Rumph was moved back to cornerback. Rumph never got a chance to play corner in a game last season because he tore the plantar fascia of his right foot, ending his season.

Rumph enters this off-season as a second-string cornerback, behind free-agent acquisition Walt Harris. Rumph is getting his first chance to show coach Mike Nolan and secondary coach Johnnie Lynn what he has to offer as a cornerback.

"They haven't seen me," Rumph said. "It's an audition. I'm coming in like it's my first day and I'm starting all over again. They've never seen me at the position, so I don't have any credibility with these guys. I'm going at it as a rookie. I want to be here and I want to come in here and do what I can to help."
