Sizing up the 49ers' local pro day

The San Francisco 49ers are listing 50 players on their invite list for a pro day featuring 2011 NFL draft prospects with Bay Area ties.

Not all will work out, but the team is opening the annual session to reporters in conjunction with Trent Baalke's first predraft news conference as 49ers general manager.

The chart shows players from Stanford and Cal comprising half of the 50 invitees. The 15 players from Stanford should have insights into new 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, their former coach. That aspect appeals regardless of how the players perform.

I'll be making a day trip to 49ers headquarters for this one.

A few invitees of note: Nebraska running back Roy Helu, Cal defensive lineman Cameron Jordan, Stanford defensive lineman Sione Fua, Cal running back Shane Vereen and former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who transferred to Mississippi after pleading guilty to burglary while with the Ducks.
