49ers 8/30 practice: Jimmy Garoppolo’s 5 consecutive TDs; Deebo Samuel ramping up; Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, Javon Kinlaw sidelined

Aug 30, 2020 at 12:30 PM--

Reporters were given one more opportunity to observe a full practice after Thursday's session was downgraded to a walk-through. After today, they will be limited to only the start of practice and not be allowed to observe team drills as the San Francisco 49ers begin preparations for Week 1.

Below are some practice notes from various media sources.

Did not practice:

You may have noticed that two of the 49ers' top three linebackers, Warner and Greenlaw, are on that list. Warner received a lighter-than-usual workload during Friday's practice at Levi's Stadium. Rookie Kinlaw was also among the newly sidelined players.

Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, however, said after practice that there were no injury concerns regarding Warner, Kinlaw, or Greenlaw.

Jimmy Garoppolo did what he could to make everyone forget about his three-interception performance on Wednesday. The quarterback was impressive during red-zone drills when he threw five consecutive touchdowns. Three of those scores went to running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

With Warner sidelined, linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair worked with the first-team defense and opened the red-zone drills with a breakup of a Garoppolo-thrown pass intended for wide receiver Kendrick Bourne at the goal line. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Safety Jaquiski Tartt had a pick-six off Garoppolo during team drills while going against rookie tight end Charlie Woerner. (KNBR)

Garoppolo hit wide receiver Dante Pettis for a couple of significant gains deep in their own territory. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

"Practice ends with Dante Pettis catching a 1-yard TD pass from Jimmy Garoppolo. Jerick McKinnon ran in the two-point conversion for the "winning" points and heaved the ball over the parking lot and onto the neighboring youth soccer field," wrote Matt Maiocco. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Daniel Brunskill got some work at right guard while Hroniss Grasu got work at center. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

"(JaMycal) Hasty again broke a few would-be big gains in team (drills)," wrote Nick Wagoner. (ESPN)

That's a wrap on training camp.

Like most of us, NFL Network analyst and Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner doesn't know for sure which player the 49ers will choose when the time comes to reveal their selection at pick three of the 2021 NFL Draft. But he does have a personal preference for that pick, along with some thoughts on what factors the 49ers have been weighing throughout the decision-making process. Warner was a guest on The Rich Eisen Show Friday, days before he and the NFL Network will head to Cleveland, Ohio for this year's NFL Draft. Warner took several minutes to discuss what could happen at pick three, saying he believes the 49ers' decision could come down to what direction they'd like to take from current starter Jimmy Garoppolo. In particular, Warner thinks Alabama

Peter King mocks Mac Jones to 49ers, won't be surprised if price drops for Jimmy Garoppolo

Longtime NFL reporter Peter King posted his first and only mock draft of the season Monday morning, and in it, he guessed the San Francisco 49ers will use their first-round pick on Alabama quarterback Mac Jones -- and that it also wouldn't be a surprise if they decided to trade current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the days ahead for less than the first-round pick they were originally reported to be seeking. King included his mock draft in his weekly Pro Football in America column, which was posted by Pro Football Talk early Monday morning.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says parting with Jimmy Garoppolo would be hard now that a rookie QB is on the way

When the question arose during 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch's predraft press conference of whether or not quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would still be on the 49ers roster at the end of this week, Shanahan at first gave a very unusual and cryptic answer. Shanahan and Lynch were asked directly early in Monday's press conference if they could guarantee Garoppolo would remain with the team through Sunday, given the fact they intend to draft his eventual replacement with the third overall pick in this week's NFL Draft. Shanahan answered in the negative -- in his own, unique way. "I can't guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday, so I can't guarantee who will be on our roster on Sunday," Shanahan said. "So that goes for

La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via
