SANTA CLARA — Here’s who stood out on Day 7 of 49ers coaching camp. Keep in thoughts, the 49ers have the day without work tomorrow, so as we speak’s observe was gentle, the gamers didn’t put on pads, and George Kittle, Nick Bosa and Dre Greenlaw had the day without work.
1. Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk
He was the perfect participant on the sector. No one might cowl him. During 1 on 1s, Aiyuk beat Charvarius Ward twice to the within for touchdowns, and then beat Jimmie Ward and made him spin the mistaken path. During 11 on 11s, Aiyuk caught a 20-yard go over Ambry Thomas (extra on him under), plus two landing catches in the pink zone — one over Charvarius Ward and one over Ka’Dar Hollman. Aiyuk is not extraordinarily quick or explosive, however he is a superb route runner, he is sturdy, he is powerful, he has lengthy arms and he is certain handed. So Aiyuk is not the perfect athlete on the offense — that is Deebo Samuel (extra on him under) — however Aiyuk does seem like the perfect large receiver on the crew.
2. Running again Ty Davis-Price
Exploded across the left finish for a 10-yard acquire throughout 11 on 11s. Davis-Price is the quickest operating again on the crew and the one participant apart from Deebo Samuel who can get to the sting on operating performs.
3. Safety Tarvarius Moore
Started at security subsequent to Jimmie Ward for the primary time this offseason. Moore is coming off an Achilles tear, however he is nonetheless rather more athletic than Talanoa Hufanga, who had began at security in the primary six practices of camp.
4. Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir
Intercepted a tipped go and returned it for a landing throughout 11 on 11s. Then in 1 on 1s, he beat rookie large receiver Danny Gray (extra on him under).(*7*)
5. Defensive sort out Javon Kinlaw
Practiced for the second day in a row and not often got here off the sector for the first-string protection, which is a superb signal that he appears wholesome. It might be fascinating to see if the 49ers let him and/or Mike McGlinchey take part in 1-on-1 go rush drills throughout camp.
6. Tight finish Tanner Hudson
Scroll to Continue
Caught a 40-yard go downfield over Marcelino McCrary-Ball — Hudson regarded like Randy Moss on that play. He has been the 49ers’ only tight finish apart from George Kittle in camp.
7. Safety Leon O’Neal Jr.
Slapped the ball out of Hudson’s fingers and compelled a fumble after he made the 40-yard catch downfield.
THE NOT SO GOOD
1. Quarterback Trey Lance
Completed simply 3 of 9 go makes an attempt, which is by no means good. To be truthful, two of his passes had been dropped, together with one that ought to have been an exquisite landing go to Deebo Samuel. The different three deep passes Lance threw had been method off, as if he and the supposed receiver had a miscommunication. But in the pink zone, Lance was cash. First, he rolled proper and threw a landing go to a diving Aiyuk. Then a couple of performs later, Lance fired a fast go in the left flat to operating again JaMycal Hasty who outran Samson Ebukam to the pylon for the rating. So Lance’s observe wasn’t dangerous, but it surely definitely wasn’t nice. He most likely would profit if the 49ers might ever get Aiyuk, Kittle and Samuel on the sector on the identical time.
2. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel
Let an ideal deep go drop via his fingers in the tip zone. Samuel was operating a fade route towards Emmanuel Moseley, who had terrific protection, however the go was good, and Samuel simply dropped it. He completed observe with zero catches whereas taking part in with the first-string offense. Clearly he is not fairly in soccer form but.
3. Wide receiver Danny Gray
Won no reps throughout 1 on 1 drills in the pink zone, which is regarding as a result of he did not face any starters, plus large receivers have the benefit throughout this drill. I doubt we are going to ever see Gray beat high quality man-to-man protection in the NFL. The 49ers must discover methods to scheme him open.
4. Wide receiver Juan Jennings
Dropped an uncontested landing go in the tip zone throughout 1 on 1s, then let Ambry Thomas wrestle the ball out of his fingers for an interception in the identical drill. Jennings caught a whopping zero passes throughout crew drills the previous three practices. Maybe he misplaced his focus.
5. Cornerback Ambry Thomas.
He intercepted a go throughout 1 on 1s, but additionally gave up his each day 20-yard catch throughout 11 on 11s. Thomas most likely ought to cease giving up 20-yard catches.
