Watch 49ers DT Javon Kinlaw preparing for his rookie campaign

Jul 9, 2020 at 6:30 AM--

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw signed his rookie deal with the San Francisco 49ers on June 26 and is working hard preparing for his first NFL season. There is a lot of pressure to fill the shoes of the Pro Bowl defensive tackle he is replacing, DeForest Buckner, and prevent one of last year's most impactful defense lines from regressing.

Defensive line training specialist Cam Spence posted a couple of videos of Kinlaw working out (h/t to Patrick Tulini). You can watch them below.

NFL players have been finding ways to train on their own this offseason. Concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have kept them away from team facilities and prevented team-organized workouts and practices.

Players can't even meet face-to-face with their coaches and won't be able to do so until training camp later this month, assuming the pandemic doesn't impact that plan.

Video conferences using Zoom have replaced physical meeting rooms. Player organized workouts had replaced practices until the NFL Players Association advised those to stop after more positive tests for the virus, including one unidentified 49ers player, started to emerge.

San Francisco made Kinlaw the No. 14 overall pick in April.

"Oh man, he just fits our scheme so perfectly," defensive end Nick Bosa said last month. "I know [defensive line coach Kris Kocurek] is chomping at the bit to get him in the building and get him doing some get-offs.

"I'm just so excited to play with a caliber of player like that ... it's going to be interesting to see how he picks everything up, not being in the building. He looks like he's going to be a great fit. He seems like a great kid."

Linebacker Kwon Alexander's first season with the San Francisco 49ers didn't go exactly as planned. He worked his way back from an ACL injury in 2018 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers only to deal with another setback the next season. After an impressive start to the season, Alexander missed eight games in 2019 due to a torn pectoral muscle but returned for San Francisco's playoff run. He registered 34 combined tackles, 0.5 sacks, four passes defensed, an interception, and a forced fumble through his eight regular-season starts last season. That wasn't the linebacker's only injury.
