Which players are participating in the 49ers rookie minicamp?

May 15, 2021 at 10:17 AM--

Today, the San Francisco 49ers will hold their second of three practices as part of a three-day rookie minicamp. Twenty-three players are participating, including the team's eight members of its 2021 draft class, the five signed undrafted free agents, a few members of the team with a year of experience, and several players trying out to make the roster.

While yesterday's practice was the first opportunity for the media to see the rookies in a 49ers helmet, including the No. 3 overall pick, quarterback Trey Lance, the rest of this weekend's practices are closed to reporters.

Below is a list of the players who are participating in the rookie minicamp. The eight drafted rookies are listed in bold. Players whose names are italicized are trying out for the team.

Which 49ers Team Will Show Up on Sunday?

By Bill Brown
Jan 14

When the 49ers clash with the Cowboys on Sunday, it should be a barroom brawl any frontiersman could tip his hat to. The 49ers have the talent and the passion to produce a win on Sunday. Still, many questions remain: Will Trent Williams really be able to play? Will Jimmy Garoppolo plow through the game with an injured thumb again this week? Will the 49ers shed their tendency toward injury for just long enough to broach a deep run into the playoffs, starting with a win over the Cowboys? Although these are all great questions, here's an even better one: Which 49ers team will show up to duke it out against a hot Cowboys team? There's a right answer to this question and, of course, a

Fred Warner talks rookie 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans: "DeMeco is as great as they come"

With an impressive Sunday afternoon 27-24 win against the Los Angeles Rams, it seems like the 49ers are reaching the expectations fans had for the team before the season. Sitting at a 10-7 record with the 6th seed in the NFC, they now look to face the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday. With the 49ers being as dangerous as teams come in the NFL currently, it's hard to remember that, just prior to the season, San Francisco went through an overhaul in terms of organization on the coaching and leadership staff. Former pass-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and, most importantly, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh both departed for the Jets, leaving huge vacancies to fill during the offseason. Fortunately, the Niners elevated Mike McDaniel to fill an offensive coordinator role and former

49ers' Kyle Shanahan impressed with rookie CB Ambry Thomas' improved play

Ambry Thomas' first NFL start came in Week 14, and it was a miserable outing. Yes, the San Francisco 49ers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 26-23, but the rookie cornerback surrendered three catches for 81 yards and a touchdown while being responsible for two penalties. Thomas earned the lowest overall Pro Football Focus grade of his six starts in that game. Those numbers have greatly improved since then. Thomas' 73.4 overall grade in Sunday's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys was the rookie's highest of the season. He allowed two targets for 24 yards and just four total yards after the catch while recording a pass breakup. Thomas was inactive for five of the 49ers' first seven games. The word "bust" was being prematurely thrown out by some. The cornerback is

49ers players say Jimmy Garoppolo looks 'real good' and has improved since last week

Jimmy Garoppolo's playing status against the Los Angeles Rams this week probably won't be known until gameday, but it sounds like he's been making visible strides in practice, based on what his teammates said Thursday. Garoppolo sat out last week's win over the Houston Texans in favor of rookie Trey Lance due to a thumb injury that may or may not require surgery in the offseason, but he's been back at practice this week as the 49ers prepare for their season finale in Los Angeles (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). He was naturally a popular topic of conversation during post-practice media sessions on Thursday, with reporters wanting to know the players'
