SANTA CLARA – Kyle Williams had his best practice of the offseason, and he was the best wide receiver on the field today. I saw him catch nine passes, including the catch of the day – a diving 20-yard reception over the middle in front of Perrish Cox. Williams also beat Tramaine Brock for a deep touchdown in one-on-one drills. If Williams dropped a pass, I didn’t see it happen. His hands have been great all offseason, and he seems to play faster than all the other wide receivers on the team.
Chris Culliver intercepted another pass today. The receiver he was covering slipped, so Culliver easily picked off Scott Tolzien. It seems like Culliver intercepts one pass per practice. His coverage isn’t as tight as Carlos Rogers’ and Tarell Brown’s, but Culliver’s the one picking off the passes this preseason. He seems to have the best hands of all the defensive backs on the Niners.
Dashon Goldson picked off Alex Smith on the first play of a seven-on-seven drill. Smith fired a short pass to Gore which tipped off the running back’s hands and right into Goldson’s. Gore shoulder checked him hard to the ground, and the whole team yelled, “OOOOOOHHH.”
