Aaron Banks talks 49ers future, Brock Purdy's progress

By David Bonilla
Jun 5

The San Francisco 49ers hold left guard Aaron Banks in high regard as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. Banks is one of several 49ers players set to become free agents next offseason. While his Pro Football Focus grades (50.2 in pass blocking and 55.8 in run blocking) may not stand out, one statistic does: He didn't allow a single sack last season, according to the analytics site. Banks likely benefits from playing alongside one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL, left tackle Trent Williams. Most defenses tend to position their strongest pass rushers away from Williams, targeting the more vulnerable right side. The 49ers will soon need to decide how much they are willing to invest in the 26-year-old guard. Worrying about the future isn't a

When Talanoa Hufanga returns to the football field, he expects to be a better player mentally. The San Francisco 49ers safety has been recovering from the ACL injury that shortened his 2023 season. He aims to be ready for Week 1 of the upcoming season after ramping up his workload during training camp. Although Hufanga is now considered a veteran in the defensive backs room, having already secured Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in his short career, he doesn't believe he has reached his ceiling. Hufanga is in the unique position of learning from one of the best ever to play the position, Hall of Fame safety and 49ers general manager John Lynch. The 49ers wrapped up their mandatory

Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch describe the 49ers locker room at halftime vs. Lions

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers trailed the Detroit Lions by 17 points at halftime in last season's NFC Championship Game. To many, it looked like their quest for a trip to the Super Bowl was over. However, the mentality inside the 49ers locker room was different. While there weren't discussions about mounting a comeback, one thing was clear: the team was embarrassed. "I was so angry, I couldn't think about winning or losing," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared at the 49ers' "State of the Franchise" event. "That wasn't the thing. It was like, 'Guys, if we're going out, we're not going out like this. When we come out, hey, we're gonna make this a problem.'" The 17-point deficit wasn't the focus.

John Lynch explains 49ers' offseason improvement strategy

By David Bonilla
Jun 10

The San Francisco 49ers are excited about their offseason improvements, believing they've done enough to remain competitive and make another Super Bowl run. Of course, every NFL team is optimistic about its chances in June. They still have to go out and perform for 17 games, hoping they're competitive enough to earn a playoff spot. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan would prefer the NFL Draft take place before free agency, allowing the team to add rookie contributors first and then spend money to fill remaining needs. Unfortunately, free agency comes first, necessitating teams to consider the depth of specific positions in the draft while not knowing who they might acquire and trying to fill any potential gaps ahead of time. The 49ers had to
