B.J. Daniels: “I’m just trying to pick up everything at a fast rate. You can’t redshirt.”

SANTA CLARA – B.J. Daniels spoke at his locker Tuesday afternoon. Here’s what he said.

Q: So, are you Russell Wilson this week?

DANIELS: (Laughs) I don’t know yet. I’m honestly not even sure yet.

Q: Were you Aaron Rodgers last week?

DANIELS: No, I was B.J. Daniels last week (more laughs).

Q: Do you think that that is a logical assignment for you to do your best Russell Wilson impersonation in practice this week?

DANIELS: I don’t know. I’m going to do whatever the coaches ask me to do. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I just got done getting in some extra work with the young guys. Right now, I’m just trying to master this offense.

Q: What was your role during the Packers’ week?

DANIELS: Just helping out with the scout team. Still learning with the first-year offense. Trying to take mental reps and watch Kap do his thing and get ready for Green Bay.

ME: Do you have the playbook down pat yet, or how difficult is that process?

DANIELS: I’m just trying to pick up everything at a fast rate. You can’t redshirt. You have to hurry up and get in and make sure you’re studying. The coaches have high expectations of you, so each day in practice you have to go out and prove yourself, be consistent. One of the things Coach Harbaugh always talks about is not being an error-repeater, but to continue to improve and show progress.
