49ers 2019 Training Camp: Richard Sherman, defense highlights practice report roundup for July 30

Jul 30, 2019 at 4:28 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have completed their fourth of 11 training camp practices from Santa Clara. The Tuesday session lasted about an hour and 45 minutes.

Quick Notes


Tarvarius Moore worked at free safety with the first-team defense during team drills. Adrian Colbert had been receiving the bulk of the reps with the starters.

"Just want a little bit more, not versatility, but making sure guys are getting the looks they need," defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said after practice while explaining the switch, "getting the work that they need to be able to get better. As training camp gets going, we need to figure out who's going to make this 53-man roster, and giving guys different looks to see if they're able to do it is very important."

The 49ers defense was the clear winner coming out of Tuesday's practice. The offense, including quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, reportedly struggled.

Injuries


Defensive back Jimmie Ward was activated from the PUP list on Tuesday. Running back Jerick McKinnon, center Weston Richburg, and tight end Garrett Celek remain on the PUP list.

Guard Joshua Garnett continues to miss practice due to a dislocated finger.

Running back Jeff Wilson tweaked his calf on Monday and did not practice.

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk had his foot stepped on during Monday's practice. He did not practice.

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon appeared to tweak his knee during practice. Greg Mabin replaced him.

Rookie linebacker Dre Greenlaw had a lacerated left hand while pass rusher Dee Ford had quad and finger issues. Neither finished the practice. Ford told Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group that he also routinely battles knee tendinitis.

Tuesday's Practice Reports


Matt Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area
49ers camp report: Free safety Tarvarius Moore gets some action with first team
Takeaways: Rough day for the offense. Garoppolo was 6-of-13 passing (others report he was 5-of-13), including a nice throw downfield that tight end George Kittle dropped. Nick Mullens was 7-of-10 passing. C.J. Beathard was 5-of-10. Nick Bosa impressed with three quarterback sacks or pressures. Defensive end Jamell Garcia-Williams batted down a Beathard pass. Kittle had a team-high three receptions. Trent Taylor, Richie James, Tevin Coleman, and Jalen Hurd had two catches apiece.

Cam Inman, Bay Area News Group
49ers training camp: Highlights from Tuesday's practice
Takeaways: Cornerback Richard Sherman impressed in tight coverage against wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. Jason Verrett and D.J. Reed also made physical plays. Mullens completed his final seven passes after his first three went incomplete. The defensive front is causing the run game to struggle. Matt Breida, however, had a breakaway run. Defensive lineman Kentavius Street is the strongest player in the weight room. That is apparent on the field, too.

Eric Branch, San Francisco Chronicle
49ers' practice report: Sherman big reason defense thwarts Garoppolo
Takeaways: Sherman boasted his play after his blanket coverage on receiver Dante Pettis resulted in a Garoppolo-thrown incompletion on the first rep of team drills. The secondary dominated practice. Sherman was in coverage during another incompletion to Pettis, and another to Goodwin. The corner stuffed running back Tevin Coleman at the line of scrimmage. Sherman "flashed decent wheels" while catching up to Breida at the end of a long run. Receiver Richie James is making a strong impression.

Chris Biderman, Sacramento Bee
49ers Practice Recap: Sherman sets the tone as defense takes control
Takeaways: Sherman is operating on a different level. The hit on Coleman fired up his defensive teammates. Witherspoon was having a good practice before leaving with his knee issue. Bosa had another strong practice. The 49ers linebackers have played well. The secondary disrupted the offense on Tuesday.

Grant Cohn, Santa Rosa Press Democrat
The good and not so good from 49ers training camp: Day 4
Takeaways: Breida, Mullens, Sherman, Moore, Bosa, and tight end Ross Dwelley listed as Grant's "good." Garoppolo, Pettis, Ford listed as "bad."

Richard Sherman still betting on Justin Fields to 49ers in draft

On Wednesday, Justin Fields worked out in front of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John Lynch, and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello. Was it enough to convince the trio that he — not Mac Jones nor Trey Lance — should be the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming draft? We may not know the answer to that until April 29. Former cornerback Richard Sherman already explained why drafting Fields made sense for his former squad. "He's been at a program that competes at a high level year in and year out," Sherman said last week on The Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which he co-hosts, "always in a championship, always in

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.

49ers held pre-draft meeting with Michigan RB Chris Evans, per report

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards
