Jimmy Garoppolo believes work with Tom House during 49ers’ break “really helped”

Jul 9, 2019 at 4:39 PM--

We didn't see too big a sample size of on-field play last season from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Fans were excited to see how a full offseason of study and work from head coach Kyle Shanahan's playbook would elevate the signal caller's game.

Then things were put on hold when Garoppolo went down with a torn ACL in Week 3.

The quarterback saw a significant workload during the 49ers' offseason program this year, but the team was cautious with Garoppolo as he continued his rehab from the injury. He hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery and told Pro Football Talk on Tuesday he expects to be "full-go" for the start of training camp.

"I'm good to go. Finally," Garoppolo said.

49ers players are in the midst of a six-week break which started in mid-June and ends when they report to training camp on July 26. Garoppolo used part of the time to work with a renowned throwing coach, Tom House, in the Los Angeles area.

Garoppolo was asked in June what he hopes to get out of his work with House and his team at 3DQB in Southern California.

"I wouldn't say there's one thing specifically," he responded. "During these 40 days, you do so many different things physical, mental. You're trying to recover at the same time getting ready for training camp. I think just having the timing of the offense down, being in rhythm with the receivers that I'll work with and everything and just getting comfortable. It's been a little while since I've been in 11-on-11 football, so just getting as comfortable as I can as quickly as I can."

Garoppolo spoke a bit on Tuesday regarding his work with House, who has helped notable quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, and others. Garoppolo's agent connected him to House, and the relationship developed from there.

The 49ers quarterback is trying to improve every aspect of his game, including his deep ball, which has been viewed by some as a weakness in his skill set. He also had a chance to throw to a group of his "pass catcher" teammates during his work at 3DQB.

Garoppolo told Matt Barrows of The Athletic that his work with House's team consisted of about four sessions per week.

"It was about fixing little things in the throwing motion," Garoppolo told Barrows, "trying to do things that I've never thought about before, helping me make the weird, awkward throws that are tough and you're not used to all the way to making the most basic hitch throw in the book, but doing it perfectly. So I think it was a good opportunity to get out there and kind of break down those guys' minds and see what they saw in my game. And I think it's really helped."

The list is a top 25 ranking, and two players represent the San Francisco 49ers. The first — 26-year-old offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill — comes in at No. 10. The

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa is the highest-ranked defender following his rookie season in the history of the NFL Top 100 Players.

Richard Sherman believes first-team practice reps will benefit Emmanuel Moseley

There's a training camp battle brewing between San Francisco 49ers cornerbacks Emmanuel Moseley and Ahkello Witherspoon. One will earn the right to start opposite veteran Richard Sherman, who believes Moseley has the upper hand after a strong 2019 campaign. Moseley, an undrafted player out of Tennessee, is entering his third NFL season. He started nine games last season after taking over for Witherspoon, who was sidelined with a foot injury. Moseley also started the 49ers' final two playoff games, including Super Bowl LIV. Sherman envisions Moseley getting the early snaps with the first-team defense when the 49ers finally get onto the practice field in August. "I think he'll have a whole training camp of starting,"
