Richard Sherman praises Emmanuel Moseley, remains confident in third-year corner

Aug 5, 2020 at 6:38 AM--


Veteran San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman recently said third-year cornerback Emmanuel Moseley would greatly benefit from the first-team reps he is about to get in training camp. That sounds like a vote of confidence from Sherman that Moseley is a shoo-in to fight off any competition for the starting job opposite him.

"I think he'll have a whole training camp of starting," Sherman told The Athletic. "It's a different preparation and a different mindset when you come into the year knowing where you stand and being able to prepare in that way. And I think that will be good for him."

Sherman sat down — virtually — with the media on Tuesday and was asked about Moseley and if he could elaborate on his praise of the young defender. Sherman responded by rattling off a lengthy list of attributes that make Moseley, in Sherman's eyes, so talented.

"He does a lot of things well," Sherman said. "He's really smart. He adjusts as he goes. He learns. He gets smarter throughout the game. He's poised. He's poised in big games. The moments are never too big for him. He's consistent. He's consistent in practice. He's consistent in the games. And he'll only get better."

The 49ers signed Moseley as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2018. He registered 50 combined tackles, eight passes defensed, and an interception through 16 games in 2019.

Nine of those 16 game appearances were starts after Moseley replaced injured cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon. Witherspoon returned to his starting role in the playoffs but was quickly replaced by Moseley.

Moseley started in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers and recorded an interception against Aaron Rodgers. He went on to start in Super Bowl LIV against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Trent Williams received a video from his head coach on Sunday after the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was the block he had on linebacker Jordan Hicks during the game. "Wow, it's good to have you back," Kyle Shanahan said in the message that included the highlight. That block went viral on Sunday, and rightfully so. Williams absolutely obliterated the defender on the play, which featured tight end George Kittle on an end-around run. Here's some cleaner video of that viral clip of Trent Williams killing a man in broad daylight.

The San Francisco 49ers surprised reporters by bringing in tight end George Kittle to speak via Zoom on Thursday. Fans shouldn't take Kittle's availability to the media as a clue that he will play on Sunday against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, though. In case anyone from the New York Giants is reading this — maybe he will, maybe he won't. "I just missed you guys," Kittle said. "They said I could talk to you guys. I haven't talked to you guys in a week. I just really missed all your faces and voices." Kittle is recovering from a sprained MCL and bone bruise, according to multiple reports.

The San Francisco 49ers released an unofficial depth chart ahead of Week 1. It listed "Emmanuel Moseley OR Ahkello Witherspoon" as the starting cornerback opposite veteran Richard Sherman. While Moseley is expected to start, we may not officially know that until warmups on Sunday morning. Kyle Shanahan sounds content with leaving the Arizona Cardinals guessing until then. The 49ers coach joined KNBR on Friday morning and was asked if the team has officially named the second starting cornerback. "No, we don't officially do anything this year," Shanahan responded. Of course, he knows. That doesn't mean listeners were going to get
