49ers report: Strategy and personnel

The 49ers have four quarterbacks on their roster, and that does not include Michael Robinson, the Penn State quarterback-turned-running back that coach Mike Nolan said at some point in the future could serve as club's No. 3.

The first two spots on the depth chart look secure heading into training camp with Alex Smith and Trent Dilfer, who was acquired in a trade with the Browns for Ken Dorsey and a seventh-round draft pick. Cody Pickett, who started two games last season, appears as the favorite to win the third-string job. But Pickett will get solid competition from Jesse Palmer, who spent three games on the 49ers' roster last season but did not appear in a game. Palmer threw the ball impressively during the team's recent three-day minicamp, and might have a chance to win a job if Pickett does not make enough progress to satisfy the team's front office and coaching staff.
