49ers notes: Welcoming party for top pick means business

After a missed flight in North Carolina and some plane delays in Texas, Kentwan Balmer finally touched down in his new NFL home Sunday night. Balmer arrived slightly tardy but decidedly happy. The 6-foot-5, 311-pound North Carolina defensive lineman spent Monday touring the 49ers' facility, meeting coaches and even getting a couple of the people he met – coach Mike Nolan and cornerback Nate Clements – to sign their autographs.
