    "The San Francisco 49ers have hosted just about every top player in the draft. On Tuesday Jason Verrett Jersey , the former edge rusher out of Florida State said that he will be visiting the 49ers soon. That was in an interview with Chris Simms and NBC Sports. If you have never seen Burns play, we’ll be breaking him down on the site later today. One of the biggest critiques for Burns was his weight. He reportedly played during the year at 230 pounds. He weighed in at 253 at the combine. During the interview, Burns spoke about how he changed his eating habits and now he’s used to the weight. Four meals and two shakes a day will do that. By the sounds of it, Burns won’t have any issue maintaining his weight. At the combine he ran a 4.53 with a 1.57 10-yard split.Burns said the main things teams have asked him about is converting “speed to power” and holding up at the point of attack. Which makes sense for a guy that played at 253. It’ll be interesting to see how much stronger Burns gets with 23 extra pounds. It’s tough to say whether this would be for the number two overall pick. More than likely a trade back scenario.Betting line growing for 49ers-Lions Fooch’s update: The line continues to grow. The line has climbed as high as seven points, with most sportsbooks between six and 6.5 points. Plenty of money coming in on the 49ers.24 hours ago, the San Francisco 49ers were sitting as a field goal favorite for their Week 2 matchup against the Detroit Lions. I figured a strong Monday Night Football performance might bring the line down a little. Turns out a strong MNF performance made a difference, just not like many of us expected. The 49ers are now 5.5 point favorites, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.The New York Jets pounded the Lions Tevin Coleman Jersey , and the game also resulted in a host of injuries for Detroit. Cornerback Darius Slay left with a head injury but returned, edge rusher Ezekiel Ansah left with a shoulder injury and did not return, and quarterback Matthew suffered a knee injury but continued, and later suffered a rib injury that cost him a few snaps.Slay and Stafford seem likely to play in Week 2, but Ansah is a serious question mark for the matchup. Public money was coming in on the 49ers at a field goal, but it will be worth tracking how the money moves with the line climbing. The line is moved to even out the money coming in so the sportsbook can be in line to profit regardless of who wins. After the Lions Monday night meltdown, sportsbooks have their work cut out for them.
