Niners sign 4th-round pick Wallace

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -The San Francisco 49ers signed center Cody Wallace to a four-year contract Wednesday, leaving only first-round pick Kentwan Balmer unsigned on the day before players report to training camp.

Wallace, a fourth-round pick and 107th overall, was an all-conference lineman at Texas A&M last season. He will back up veteran starter Eric Heitmann on the 49ers' revamped offensive line.

Balmer, a defensive lineman from North Carolina, was the 29th overall pick. Earlier this week, general manager Scot McCloughan said he was confident he would have all six of the 49ers' draft choices in camp on time.

San Francisco has its first team meeting on Thursday afternoon, with its first practice Friday at its training complex.
