Takeaway from Day 5 of 49ers Training Camp

The pads are finally working! Now things are getting serious at training camp for the 49ers. While it can still be useful to cut back on blanket statements about the season based on practice, opinions can be better taught now that there is more fitness and connection in these bootcamp sessions.

Here’s what happened on Day 5 and what we make of it:

Deebo Samuel debuted in 2022 and for the first time every Offseason team participated with his teammates in training. In the mandatory minicamp he stayed to the side to do the conditioning. Follow the same path for the first four days of camp. On Sunday he agreed to a three-year extension, then signed the agreement on Monday before practice. His entry into action would be eased so he wouldn’t go through a full session, but his No. 19 shirt was definitely on the field.

Kinlaw was my first quilting practice, but there’s no need to worry. The 49 players simply give their defensive tackle a routine maintenance day after day off. Staying healthy is key to San Francisco’s defense this year. It wouldn’t be surprising if maintenance days were a regular occurrence for the Kinlaw throughout the year.

49ers pass rush force the midfielder Tre Lance to do a lot of things off schedule in the attack. This has some pros and cons. The good news is that San Francisco’s defense looks like it’s part of a championship-caliber unit, and Lance was able to put in some great plays by coming out of the pocket. The bad news is that the offensive line is struggling early and the 49ers probably want to see Lance more in tune with plays running on time. The ability to escape the rush of good passes and keep playing is one of the advantages of switching to Lance in QB, and his penchant for playing plays when things fall apart will be good for him and San Francisco in 2022. Now the club just needs to make sure their offensive line gives them time to play. Inside the attack structure as well.

Disputed capture Kittle

One of the few blows George Kettle took during the early part of his career was that he wasn’t a super effective player in traffic. Some changed last year, and Looks like he’s moving to training camp This year with the tight end ripping multiple receptions away from the defenders. Lance and Keitel should be on the same page, but it will be a lot easier the first time QB starts if his TE is going to make those receptions in tight coverage. That should also be helpful in keeping Kittle’s touchdown numbers high after he posted six TDs last season.

Brandon Ayok continues to shine

With Samuel out of the first four drills, Aiyuk shone as the team’s number one receiver. That hasn’t changed with Samuel’s return to work. He’s got two big Lance games, and he’s caught up to Jimmy Ward in one-on-one drills:

Pads do not change OL

The coming pads didn’t change the 49ers training camp plan up front. They rotated the interventions of Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchy. Spencer Burford, who was selected in the fourth round, remained in the right guard position while Jake Brendel served as the center of the first team. Burford’s appearance remains a surprise to the training camp, and appears to be the favorite to start RG with Aaron Banks likely to retain the left-hand guard job.

The role of Elijah Mitchell

A crowded back-running room didn’t seem to interrupt Mitchell’s role as the team’s number one player. Note ESPN’s Nick Wagner Mitchell wins the lion’s share of the first team Early in the camp. He was the top-ranked in the 49ers last year and the team treated him like that. This season, the club will probably want to see another back that could make an effective appearance with Mitchell. For now, the plan appears to be to return with Mitchell as a catalyst, although that could change quickly with Tyrion Davis-Pryce, Trey Sermon and others vying for a pregnancy.
