Sports Night: Seahawks TE familiar to 49ers

49ers: Draft pick Tartt will get his chance to stop Graham

General manager Trent Baalke once said he could use a 6-foot-6 safety to counter the Seahawks’ acquisition of former Saints tight end Jimmy Graham. Well, his team didn’t find one of those in the draft, but they did select hard-hitting, 6-1, 221-pound Jaquiski Tartt in the second round two months later. Tartt and others will get their chances to stop Graham when the teams meet Thursday.

Swingman Omri Casspi isn’t concerned about his uneven training camp and preseason. If his 16-point, seven-rebound performance Saturday in the exhibition finale against New Orleans is an indication, his confidence is well-founded.
