49ers General Manager John Lynch has made an addition to the personnel department in Santa Clara.

The 49ers announced on Friday that Ran Carthon has been hired as their director of pro personnel. He joins Adam Peters and Martin Mayhew as new faces to join the 49ers front office since Lynch was hired in February.

“Ran has a clear vision for how he plans to run our pro personnel department, and was excited about the opportunity to blend his approach with ours,” Lynch said in a statement. “Having previously directed his own pro department, we expect Ran to hit the ground running and help us build the strongest roster possible.”

Carthon held the same job with the Rams for the last five years after leaving the Falcons along with Rams General Manager Les Snead. Carthon, whose father Maurice was a longtime Giants fullback, played nine games for the Colts in 2005 and 2006.

    Correct me if Im wrong, but the Rams have sucked for more than 5 years. He was the director of player personnel with the Rams right? Oh boy, whos gonna take the blame when the whiners finish 4-12 this year?

    If they finish 4-12, that is an improvement over last season. LOL

    4-12 would be exceeding everyone’s expectations. This is a Mark Cubanesque strive to take a dive season for the #1 pick. If we could harness the energy of all the niner jerseys that will get burned this year, we could power this country for the next 100 years…

    4-12 is a step in the right direction, so ok. I do not expect SB this year. As of right now, no starting QB to speak of, 4-12 would not surprise me. I am realistic.

    I did not see where they mentioned the Lions, in this post, so i do not see the Millen connection.(Yet)
    But Waynefontsismyfather, you will always have to deal with those genetics. How many teams have gone 0-16?

    Kamthechancellor, sadly you have to troll 9er threads, can’t you worry about your qb getting arrested again? or signing another 9er retread?

    RaiderRob: Yes, yes they have… I can only hope and dream that they just ignored everything he said and did it Fishers way… (This may be somewhat delusional, but hey fan is short for Fanatic right?) Let a man dream… Silver and Black are looking good once again. Congrats…

    There, I fixed that for you!
