The 49ers on Monday announced the promotion of Salli Clavelle to the role of pro personnel analyst.
Clavelle is the only female to hold a full-time scouting position in the NFL, according to The Athletic. She joined the 49ers last summer during training camp as a scouting assistant. In her previous role with the organization, she assisted the college and pro scouting departments in their evaluations of NFL players.
Clavelle, the niece of former Green Bay Packers player Shannon Clavelle, played basketball at Sam Houston State. In May 2016, she was hired in the football recruiting department at Tulane.
The 49ers announced seven promotions and hirings to their personnel department.
Dominic DeCicco takes over as the 49ers’ West Area college scout after spending last season scouting the Midlands Area. DeCicco takes over for Reggie Cobb, who passed away in April.
Ryan Kessenich was hired to scout the Midlands Area. He spent the past six seasons working as a scout for the Chicago Bears.
Travis Dauro moves from his role as a scouting assistant to the college scouting coordinator in his third season with the 49ers.
Fred Gammage III was hired as pro personnel analyst. He previously served on the Arizona State football staff.
Crowley Hanlon was promoted to pro personnel coordinator. He had been a special assistant, working on roster evaluations, creating player cutups, monitoring roster moves and coordinating free-agent visits.
Steve Slowik was brought on as a scouting assistant after spending more than three years as an analyst for Pro Football Focus. The brother of 49ers offensive assistant Bobby Slowik, Steve played cornerback at Michigan Tech University in 2007 and ’08.
The 49ers host the Pittsburgh Steelers in their first home game of the season. It's also the first time in 30 years San Francisco enter their regular-season home opener with a 2-0 record.
In what should be a loud homecoming for the squad, the 49ers will face a Ben Roethlisberger-less Steelers team after the quarterback underwent season-ending elbow surgery last week.
Defensive end Dee Ford will be a game-time decision as he's dealing with knee discomfort.
As far as the matchup is concerned, the 49ers are favored to win. And football writers across the country appear to agree as well.

There’s still room on the bandwagon, but you better hurry.
Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers are 2-0 to start the season, and have won both games by at least two touchdowns.
They’ll look to keep the momentum rolling Sunday when they welcome in the Steelers. Pittsburgh will be sans franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who had season-ending elbow surgery last week after the team’s Week 2 loss in Seattle.
Dee Ford is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, after sitting out practice on both Wednesday and Thursday. The talented defensive end sat out the second half of Sunday’s win in Cincinnati with knee discomfort.
