Joe Montana's oldest son Nate, who auditioned for the 49ers earlier this month, will take part in their rookie minicamp May10-12 as an unsigned free agent, the Sacramento Bee first reported Sunday.

Montana was not selected in the NFL's seven-round draft that completed Saturday. He took part in the 49ers' workout for local prospects April 17, having attended De La Salle High School in Concord.

"I love the Bay Area. It's a great, great place," the younger Montana said after that workout. "Coming back to where my dad played, you just have to put your head down and try to make your own name."

Joe Montana launched his Pro Football Hall of Fame career in 1979 as a third-round draft pick by the 49ers. He won four Super Bowls before being traded in 1993 to the Kansas City Chiefs, where he played his final two seasons.

Nate Montana's agent, Marty Magid, told the Sacramento Bee that the 49ers haven't offered his client a contract, at least not yet. Other teams have also expressed interest in Montana for their rookie camps next weekend.

Montana (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) finished his nomadic college career at Division II West Virginia Wesleyan. He previously attended Notre Dame, Pasadena City College and Montana.

Of their 11 draft picks, the 49ers used a seventh-round choice Saturday on University of South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels, who'll initially compete for a backup role with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien behind starter Colin Kaepernick, coach Jim Harbaugh said. Daniels' athleticism also makes him a prospect as a running back, wideout and return specialist.
