OTA Notes: Good Kap, Bad Kap

SANTA CLARA — Here’s what stood out to me during Thursday’s mini-camp. THE GOOD 1. Red-zone Kap — Two-for-two during the full-team red-zone drill. On first-and-ten from the defense’s 15 yard line, Kaepernick hit Anquan Boldin in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. On attempt No.2 — first-and-goal from the 6 — […]

OTA Notes: Ellington beats Johnson, Patton beats Brock, Brooks beats Kaepernick

SANTA CLARA — Here’s what stood out to me at Wednesday’s mini-camp. THE GOOD 1. Bruce Ellington — The only receiver who caught a deep pass. During one-on-one drills, Ellington ran deep against rookie cornerback Dontae Johnson. McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw a perfect deep pass. Ellington jumped up and caught the ball over Johnson, who is […]

Is Ward a lock to start at Nickelback? Fangio: “I don’t think you can assume that.”

SANTA CLARA — Vic Fangio spoke to Bay Area reporters Wednesday afternoon. Here is a transcript courtesy of the 49ers. Are these the first real looks that you’ve been getting of DT Tank Carradine since he got here last year? “Yes. Last year at this time he wasn’t practicing, and that you guys know, didn’t […]

Given that Fangio is not very Harbaughlike when it comes to publicly evaluating players, I found this to be encouraging:... - claude balls

Harbaugh: “Didn’t call anybody out. There was no call out of anybody.”

SANTA CLARA — Jim Harbaugh spoke to Bay Area reporters Wednesday afternoon. Here is a transcript courtesy of the 49ers. Yesterday, I was just noticing WR Anquan Boldin how he practices and just what that means. Just him on the field and the way he goes about his nature. They were doing just warm-up drills, […]

Tank Carradine: “I say rushing from the inside is a little easier.”

SANTA CLARA – I asked Tank Carradine a couple of questions during a group interview in the 49ers’ locker room Wednesday afternoon. Here is a transcript. ME: What’s different for you rushing on the inside against a guard as opposed to rushing on the outside against a tackle? CARRADINE: “When you’re rushing the guard, everything […]

Davis has leverage in contract showdown

This is my Tuesday column on Vernon Davis holding out. SANTA CLARA – Taped to Vernon Davis’ locker is a white piece of paper that has a message printed on it: “Please come by the EQ Room and try on your helmet. Needs to be fitted by Friday, 5/23.” I guess Davis missed that message. […]

OTA Notes: Marcus Lattimore improves

SANTA CLARA — Here’s what stood out to me during Tuesday’s mini-camp. THE GOOD 1. Marcus Lattimore — Looked much more agile than he did during OTAs. He caught one pass in the flat, planted his left foot, cut and exploded into the end zone for a touchdown. I haven’t seen him cut like that […]

Vernon Davis confirms he’s holding out

Last Wednesday, I wrote a column explaining why Vernon Davis has leverage over the 49ers, and that he may choose to not attend this week’s mini-camp unless the 49ers renegotiate his contract first. Today, Vernon Davis wrote a column for SI.com confirming that he is indeed holding out. “I’m playing at a higher level than I […]
