  1. You can see the potential in Hurd on that first slant rep. Shanny could have himself a real gem there in 2-3 years.

  2. Easy to fault rookie ball drops….horrible rookie WRs, correct? Um, who were the guys throwing the balls? I don’t think they were HOF QBs…

      1. And some throws were kinda bad, no?

        Rookie camp……………were you expecting a Super Bowl practice?

    1. So I guess it takes receivers HOF QBs to not drop the ball then lol. I think we also left out the invisible DBs out there making plays on the ball.

      1. Yup. An hour into rookie camp and the 9ers are toast. I’m sure we’d have seen horrible play in drills Grant didn’t video.

        It’s over.

        1. “Arizona Wildcats wide receiver Shawn Poindexter is signing with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent, according to Michael Lev of the Arizona Daily Star.

          Poindexter played in 35 games in three seasons at Arizona, starting all 25 over his final two seasons. He caught 67 passes for 1,135 yards and 12 touchdowns. As a senior, Poindexter hauled in 42 passes for 759 yards and 11 touchdowns, tying the school’s single-season record.

          Poindexter initially signed to play volleyball out of high school at Cal Baptist but never enrolled. Instead, he attended Glendale Community College where he caught 47 passes for 727 yards and seven touchdowns, being named a first-team All-ACCAC.

          The 6-foot-5 Poindexter has the size and catch radius to play in the NFL, but his ability—or lack thereof—to get separation will be the big question mark for him moving forward.

          The Niners were one of the teams to show the most interest in Poindexter during Arizona’s pro day. He said he met with the organization’s national scout and that led to former NFL receiver Miles Austin (now a Niners assistant) coming to Tucson to check Poindexter out.”

    1. It’s what we do. Most of us are experienced GMs and HCs, anxiously awaiting our return to the NFL. Not sure why we aren’t in the league at the moment. Doesn’t matter. We know. Always.

    2. Josh

      Because all of the posters on here NOW weren’t around when Randy Cross called them out with ..”maybe if they put down their glasses of white wine and cheered for us, we’d win more”…good lesson in anyone’s book….

    3. Because they have no class, hiding behind a keyboard they can say what they want without anyone knowing who they are.

  3. I do like them finally bringing in some big WR’s to camp. Give Jimmy big targets in the red zone and he will drop dimes to those guys..

  4. Hmmm, so one can extrapolate a player’s entire career from one dropped ball, poorly thrown, in a rookie mini camp.
    .
    Interesting.

  5. I propose that the NFL offer the option of season forfeiture to any team that suffers a 2nd dropped ball by a rookie WR on the first day of rookie camp. Exercising the right of forfeiture would be given to the subject team’s fan base. All it would take is a minimum of three fans to throw in the towel within 12 hrs of the 2nd ball drop.

    Team would record a 0-16 record, and would be forced to pick at the bottom of every round during the next draft. Ownership would be fined $20 million. Cool thing is that righteous fans would decide–not homers, only true fans. One drawback, fans would need to register with the team and the NFL so that rouge fans couldn’t tank the season of other teams.
