First looks at 49ers QB Trey Lance throwing during rookie minicamp practice

May 14, 2021 at 1:28 PM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, stepped onto the field in Santa Clara for the first of three practices during the team's rookie minicamp. The Friday afternoon session is the only one that will be open to the media, and it gave reporters their first opportunity to get a look at the former North Dakota State star.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic seemed to sum things up well with the following tweet.


Other media members shared some video of Lance tossing the football at the 49ers' facilities for the first time, not counting any throws during a morning walkthrough that took place hours earlier.


Lance has not played in a game since October 3, 2020. It was his only outing last season, and the young quarterback has been eager to get back on the football field. Until today, Lance has been working to absorb his new NFL playbook.

"The playbook was fun," Lance told reporters before practice. "I've been looking forward to learning a new playbook, and obviously, it's an NFL playbook, so it's going to be a lot. But for me, I've been waiting to learn a new playbook for the last seven-eight months, so it was a ton of fun to finally be able to get into it."

The rookie minicamp will continue on Saturday and conclude on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined Michael Silver and his daughter, Natalie, on the latest Pass It Down podcast. Of course, the topic of quarterbacks came up. The Niners have Jimmy Garoppolo, who helped guide the team to a Super Bowl just over 16 months ago. But the team also planned for the future, trading up to select Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. While Kittle remains loyal to his starting quarterback of the past three and a half seasons, the All-Pro tight end is impressed with his new rookie quarterback. "He's a freak athlete. It's kind of fun to watch that. It is," Kittle told the Silvers. "He's got a cannon for an arm too. That's fun to watch too. It's a different style of quarterback play, for



Kyle Shanahan discusses having a dual-threat quarterback in 49ers rookie Trey Lance

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's ability to lead the San Francisco 49ers offense. That confidence may waver when it comes to depending on his veteran passer to be available for the majority of the season. That, not his skill set, led Shanahan and the 49ers to seek another quarterback in the draft. In January, Shanahan fell in love with the idea of acquiring Trey Lance. He liked several of this year's rookie quarterbacks, but it was the North Dakota State product who pushed him to want to trade up from No. 12 overall. So San Francisco did exactly that, moving up to No. 3 to select Lance, a prospect with little experience but huge upside. Most assume that it is Lance's athletic ability that drew Shanahan to the
