after last season's success, they created a blueprint for the 49ers. so in this draft the 49ers can pinpoint the players that are best fit for their system. >> it really comes down to their ability, their fit, their fit within our system, and the intangibles, the character aspect of the player. there are certain players that can't play here for various reasons whether we feel there is too much risk in what they have established themselves as from a character standpoint or the fit, physical limitations they may have that would prevent them from reaching potential here versus somewhere else. >> reporter: so when it comes their turn to select a draft pick, there may be some great athletes and great players at positions the 49ers would like to pick up to add depth to their roster but if that player
doesn't fit into their system, they'll pass on that player. they do believe they can find the best player available that fits their system in the first round. we will see very shortly who that player will be. >> thank you, mindy. back over to andrew luck. he'll wear the helmet with the horseshoe on it in indianapolis while replacing one of the best quarterbacks in the game, peyton manning. >> so excited. nothing is truly a done deal until it is done. amazing to be out here. for the family to be here. excited. >> indianapolis colts. >> great moment right there. former stanford cardinal had a big smile when it became official and he's very eager to play on sundays. we wish him the best of luck. >> so excited. nothing is truly a done deal until it's done. amazing to be out here. this moment for the family to be here. really excited. >> you told me in the back, i
can't wait. >> over to baseball now. giants and reds top of the fourth. 19-game hitting streak to open the season sets a new franchise record. all right. way to go, panda. ninth inning we jump to. giants down 5-3. giants needing a little bit of divine intervention. find it in the form of angel. three-run homer gives the giants the lead for good. giants win. your final 6-5. >> he's a guy that's very tough. you can't get too big against him. he's very successful. last night he struck me out with a curveball. i was aware he would throw it back again. i put a good swing on it and got him. it's a nice park to hit. obviously i never try to hit a homer but i was trying to make solid contact to help my team. that's what i did. two-strike approach and put the ball in play.
