Key dates for 49ers and Brock Purdy; Offseason schedule announced

The San Francisco 49ers offseason program has come into focus.

On Friday the NFL announced the offseason workout schedule for all 32 teams. The 49ers are set to open their offseason program April 17.

The 49ers will host rookie minicamp the first of second weekend following the draft. The draft is set for April 27-29 and the Niners currently hold 11 selections.

San Francisco will hold three weeks of on field OTA (organized team activities) during phase three of the offseason program. During this period no live contact is permitted, but teams can run 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills. The OTA dates are scheduled as follows:

May 22-23, May 25

May30-31, June 2

June 5-6, June 8

Following OTA’s the 49ers will wrap up their offseason program with mandatory minicamp June 13-15.

The 49ers minicamp is likely to provide the next update in Brock Purdy’s recovery process following a repair of the torn UCL in his throwing elbow.

Purdy underwent successful surgery on March 10 during which an internal brace was used to reconnect the torn UCL he suffered during the NFC Championship game.

The 49ers quarterback is set to begin a throwing program to build rebuild the strength in his throwing arm around three months post-surgery. That puts his return to throwing prior to the beginning of minicamp.

To gradually build up strength in the elbow, the early stages of the program will call for Purdy to be throwing smaller objects such as golf balls and tennis balls. Purdy will be going through the rehabilitation process in Santa Clara under close guidance of the 49ers strength and conditioning staff.

  1. Seems to me the team looks a little thin at OT, OLB, and CB. If the could add some kind of play-making TE to compliment Kittle, that would be great. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the 49ers draft a kicker as well.

    1. agree with Jeff. Also, look for Darold to open the system if trey does not show major improvement in camp. I would not be surprised if Darold plays the first 4-6 weeks of the season or more.

    2. Jeff
      I would add a Safety, a QB, a K and a 2nd OT to your list of OT, OLB, CB and TE.
      Then the only question left is, do the 9ers trade up for a OT? IMO. yes! I’d try to trade up for Blake Freeland, BYU or for Jaelyn Duncan, Maryland.

  2. Very interesting. I know many fans are taking a negative attitude towards Purdy’s availability. However, the medical community says that the healing process should be complete at 3 months just prior to OTAs and then the arm strengthening part begins. Purdy will be there during this period and getting at least mental reps. When training camp starts, Purdy will be 2 months into his arm strengthening program and will be at the same stage as Mullen was when he had completed his rehab.

    This is all to say that Purdy is likely ready to be a full participant at the beginning of training camp or at least the start of preseason games. Lance will likely get the majority of reps during training camp. Based on how well he plays in training camp will likely determine the order of playing time between Lance and Purdy in preseason games. Unless Lance clearly shows dramatic improvement in both training camp and the preseason, Purdy will start the season.

    1. By my calculation Purdy will return to full activity (practice) on or around Sept 10. That puts his return 1 day after the first game. Meaning he will miss all OTAs, mini camp, camp and preseason games. Every Doctor I have heard says he will be ready for full practice in Approx. 6 months. If that time table holds he should be fully ready by the 4th or 5th week. If his rehab is quicker than most Dr.s predict he could possibly be ready by the 1st or second week. I see Lance starting at least the first two games unless he looks terrible and then we might see Darnold for a couple of weeks. The 49ers early season success lies with Steve Wilks and his D. imho

      1. Yeah, I think they should play Lance at the beginning of the season until Purdy is comfortable to play. No sense of rushing Purdy back with Lance waiting in the wings.

      2. Lamar will not be our next QB.. He is not a great passer and is an oft-injured running QB. Time is catching up with him and fast. Cousins is far more Kyle’s type of QB if we were in the trade market.

        1. You’re joking, right?Are you going to pay Lamar’s salary? Or are you one of those that thinks trading Nick Bosa and another player to Baltimore is a good call, and we worry about the money later on, by restructuring contracts, and paying guys for 5 years after they retire?

      3. You could be right, however, I think you are missing the point that he will be fully healed after 3 months. The next 3 months are just strengthening the arm. Mullens did it in 2 month so why cant Purdy do it? He absolutely has the possibility of being ready to play before the first game. Time will tell though as nobody knows for sure, but unless Lance looks great going through training camp, I believe Purdy will start.

      4. OldCoach
        Would you draft a QB? If yes, who and in what Rd?
        IMO, the 9ers should draft Clayton Tune, Houston in the 7th Rd. (If he’s still available)

        1. GEEP,
          Yes and yes. They should draft a QB and Tune is my #1 QB. I would go as high as the 6th round.

  3. LARRY KRUEGER is spot on … the 49ers are on the doorstep, and walking through the door of another dominant, multiple championship run, and that’s on top of 3 NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl appearance over the last 4 seasons! If they pull this off, they become the first NFL team to have 2 separate, dynastic, decades-long run of domination! I absolutely love the way JL and the FO have honed and perfected their team, roster-building formula, and have really separated themselves from the pack, IM. they’ve got a talented group of QB’s at the basement pay scale, and they have added a priority, ELITE blue-chip talent at a position of need (C. Ward 2022, Hargraves 2023), all while MONOPOLIZING the NFL’s draft compensation formula ( a record 7 comp picks in 2023[league MAX]). This sure feels like a surefire team-building recipe for sustained success! Kyle just needs to figure out a way to keep his QB’s relatively healthy and it’s GAME ON!!

    1. Taken aback at how positive you’ve become about the Niners organizations and prospects. If a one-time skeptic such as yourself has been won over, this does bode well for the team and the year(s) ahead.
