                             Chris Trotman Getty Images The newest 49er, outside linebacker Aldon Smith, is

                             greeted by Commissioner Roger Goodell after being taken with the seventh pick in

                             the NFL draft Thursday.

                             On the day the 49ers surprised observers by selecting Missouri defender Aldon

                             Smith with the No. 7 pick, coach Jim Harbaugh threw another curveball: He said

                             that quarterback Alex Smith, a free agent he has been wooing all offseason, would

                             be visiting team headquarters as well.

                             The fact that the NFL lockout has been lifted – at least temporarily – means that

                             teams are compelled to open their doors so that players can meet with coaches

                             and work out at team facilities.

                             Smith has been part of a group of a dozen or so 49ers who have been training

                             together in the San Jose area. He has a one-year contract offer from the 49ers.

                             Teams could begin to sign free agents as soon as Monday.

                             Harbaugh and the 49ers also showed their faith in Alex Smith on Thursday when,

                             with Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert and a host of other passers available at

                             No. 7, they instead took Gabbert's teammate, Aldon Smith.

                             Smith, 21, is a junior who only had 5 1/2 sacks last season for the Tigers. But he

                             impressed Harbaugh and his assistants with the grit he showed in 2010.

                             Smith broke his right fibula in the third game of the season against San Diego

                             State. The injury normally takes six weeks to heal. Smith, however, was back on

                             the field five weeks later for Missouri's game against Oklahoma, a 36-27 Missouri

                             win in which Smith had an interception return for 58 yards.

                             "That struck a chord with me," he said of Smith's toughness. "You could tell he was

                             playing on it, limping at times. There's a toughness aspect there, both mentally and

                             physically, that I was impressed with."

                             Although Smith played defensive end in Missouri's scheme, Harbaugh said he would
                                                                                               Generated by at 5/2/2011 3:27:23 AM
