Saturday's Practice Reports

49ers camp practice 1: Nick Bosa shows well against Joe Staley
Takeaways: Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's return to 11-on-11 drills. He ended practice with six consecutive completions after his first two misfires. Rookie defensive end Nick Bosa's impressive first practice. Rookie Dre Greenlaw was the SAM linebacker with the first-team defense and stuffed running back Tevin Coleman on the first play of training camp.

49ers training camp: Bosa shines in debut practice
Takeaways: Bosa impresses. Garoppolo looked "encouragingly nimble" and was able to get his passes away before Bosa or Dee Ford got to him. Linebacker Kwon Alexander (ACL) and cornerback Jason Verrett (Achilles) made their practice debuts but were held out of 11-on-11 drills. The team is easing them back. Jimmie Ward, who is on PUP, did individual conditioning on a side field. Ben Garland started at center.

Garoppolo, defensive line shine for 49ers on opening day of training camp
Takeaways: Biderman listed DeForest Buckner and Solomon Thomas as standouts from practice. Each had a couple of tackles for a loss. Some of Buckner's success came against the right side of the O-line, where Mike Person and Joshua Garnett are rotating at guard. Garoppolo looked sharp. He "threaded the needle between traffic" on a play to wide receiver Dante Pettis. Rookie receiver Deebo Samuel hauled in a pass from quarterback Nick Mullens and took it for what would have been a touchdown. Defensive back Tyree Robinson stripped rookie tight end Tyree Mayfield and recovered the fumble.

Takeaways: Bosa was impressive. He lined up at right end with the second-team defense and in the first-string nickel package. Garoppolo had deep passes to Pettis and Jordan Matthews. D.J. Reed lined up at outside cornerback after playing nickel and free safety last year. Tarvarius Moore practiced at free safety. Kyle Shanahan's father, Mike, attended practice.
