49ers OTAs: Vernon Davis makes the catch of the day

SANTA CLARA – Here’s what stood out to me from Tuesday afternoon’s OTA session. Keep in mind that most of this session took place about 75 yards away from reporters, so I can’t give you the same amount of detail I normally would. THE GOOD 1. Vernon Davis. He made the best catch of the […]

Boldin’s good work adds to Davis puzzle

Here is my Thursday column on the 49ers’ offense, sans Michael Crabtree. SANTA CLARA –Without Michael Crabtree, the focal point of the San Francisco 49ers’ passing attack last season, the 49ers need all of their receivers to step up – Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis, A.J. Jenkins and anyone else who can run and catch and […]

49ers OTAs: Boldin is sharp, Kaepernick is not

SANTA CLARA – Here’s what stood out to me from the 49ers’ second open OTA. THE GOOD 1. Anquan Boldin. He lined up in the slot about 90 percent of the time in 7-on-7 drills and 11-on-11 drills, and he caught 10 passes on 11 targets. He was the best offensive player on the field […]

If Anquan Boldin is the 49ers’ flanker, who will be their split end?

Jim Harbaugh spoke on 95.7 The Game Friday afternoon. Here’s what he said about the 49ers’ wide receivers. Q: Who do you expect to fill the void at wide receiver? HARBAUGH: “We’ll put (A.J.) Jenkins, (Quinton) Patton and Ricardo Lockette at the same position and let them compete and emerge. And the good news is […]

49ers OTAs: Craig Dahl and Chad Hall stand out, Chris Culliver struggles

SANTA CLARA – Here’s the good and the not-so-good from the 49ers’ Wednesday OTA session. THE GOOD 1. Craig Dahl – He was the starting free safety, and he had the best day of all of the 49ers’ defensive backs. Dahl almost picked off Colin Kaepernick twice. First, Kaepernick tried to fire a pass to […]

A.J. Jenkins: “I weigh about 196. When I weigh 200 I’ll be good to go.”

SANTA CLARA – A.J. Jenkins spoke to Bay Area reporters Tuesday afternoon. Here’s what he said. Q: What did you do this offseason? JENKINS: I worked out with Kaepernick down there in Atlanta. I was working hard, learning the playbook, gaining some weight. Me, Kaep and Lockette were real focused. Q: How much did you […]

Quinton Patton vs. A.J. Jenkins

As we wait for OTAs to start on Tuesday, here’s a contest to help pass the time: Predict which young 49ers wide receiver will catch more passes this season – A.J. Jenkins or Quinton Patton. Also, predict how many catches each receiver will make. Please explain your predictions.      

How much of an issue is speed for the 49ers’ offense?

This upcoming season, the 49ers arguably will have the slowest base offense in the NFL. I’m talking 21 personnel – Frank Gore at tail back, Bruce Miller at fullback, Vernon Davis at tight end, Michael Crabtree at flanker and Anquan Boldin at split end. When those players are on the field for the 49ers, their […]

The 49ers’ top 10 offseason position battles

Here are the top-10 position battles on the 49ers I’m looking forward to this offseason. Which battles interest you the most? 1. No.2 and No.3 cornerback: Carlos Rogers vs. Nnamdi Asomugha vs. Chris Culliver. Tarell Brown probably is a lock to start, so Rogers, Asomugha and Culliver will compete for the other two cornerback spots […]

The one player the 49ers should avoid in the draft

If there is one player the 49ers should avoid drafting at all costs, who is it? If you can’t think of just one player, can you make a top-five list? I’m saying the 49ers should not draft USC wide receiver Robert Woods, who’s projected to get picked at the end of the first round or […]

Trent Baalke’s pre-draft press conference transcript

Trent Baalke held a press conference in the 49ers’ defensive meeting room Wednesday morning. Here’s a transcript. Q: Where are you guys in the process of putting together your board? BAALKE: We’re probably 50 percent there. Q: That’s all? BAALKE: It’s pretty much set. We’ve got some touch-up stuff we’ve got to do, cleaning some […]

Peter King: “Jim Harbaugh has been at a high number of receiver workouts.”

In Peter King’s most recent article, he lets us know Jim Harbaugh has been at “a high number of receiver workouts” before this year’s draft. King cites an unnamed NFL G.M., who says this: ‘This isn’t about 2013 for the Niners. Harbaugh knows he’ll be there for a while. They just lost Randy Moss, and […]
