  49ers | Sopoaga prefers defensive end     Wed Jul 1, 04:23 PM

Matthew Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee, reports San Francisco 49ers DL Isaac Sopoaga has said previously that he prefers playing defensive end rather than nose tackle because he has less to worry about at end.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have developed a solid group of grinders on the DL to complement big ticket free agent pickupp Justin Smith, who has made a great transition from 4-3 to 3-4 end. Sopoaga is one of those key rotational players and his versatility is part of his value to the team.
