Watch: 49ers rookie Trey Sermon working on his footwork leading to training camp

Jun 28, 2021 at 8:48 AM--


San Francisco 49ers players are on a break until they report to training camp on July 27. That doesn't mean the work stops, though. Players are expected to take what they learned during the offseason program, work independently, and stay in shape.

It looks like Trey Sermon is taking the task seriously. Video has surfaced (h/t to Patrick Tulini) of the rookie running back working on his footwork as he prepares for the rigors of his first NFL training camp.


The 49ers made Sermon a third-round draft pick out of Ohio State. He was the first of two running backs selected. San Francisco also drafted Elijah Mitchell out of Louisiana in the sixth round.

Both rookies are competing for playing time in what is expected to be a strong running back rotation that includes Raheem Mostert at the top of the depth chart.

Mostert recently shared his thoughts on his new rookie teammates and what it has been like mentoring the younger running backs.

"We all challenge each other, they're gonna get the best out of me and I'm gonna try to get the best out of them," Mostert said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "Especially with the younger guys, Trey and Elijah, those two guys, they're really learning under me right now and they're understanding the game and what it takes to be a pro and they're handling it so well."

Trey Lance started his first NFL game this past weekend, replacing an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. The rookie quarterback's performance had its ups and downs. Despite the defeat and the San Francisco 49ers falling to 2-3 on the season, the outing was an excellent opportunity for Lance to learn and gain valuable experience. General manager John Lynch joined KNBR today. He offered an evaluation of Lance's first start and didn't feel the moment was too big for the 21-year-old. "I think that was the case from the very first play," Lynch said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "You know, welcome to the NFL. J.J. Watt and Chandler Jones blow by our offensive line on the first play, and Trey's got enough athleticism and instinct to pull up and make an

Analyzing 49ers QB Trey Lance's rookie season so far

When the 49ers drafted Trey Lance at No. 3 overall, I thought that he was specifically for 2022, because I felt the inconsistencies with his accuracy in college just needed to be fixed, similar to Josh Allen when he came out of the draft. Well, the inevitable happened, as Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a calf strain in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to Seattle, paving the way for Lance to make his first career start. Up to now, Lance is 25-of-48 for 354 yards, with three touchdowns, and an interception through the air, while also rushing 27 times for 133 yards and a touchdown. So, where does that place Lance? Well, in the limited sample size, Lance has primarily been what was expected, and then some. Coming out of college, Lance was a player

San Francisco 49ers players aren't around their Santa Clara headquarters right now because the team is on its bye week. However, they will return next week to begin preparations for the Indianapolis Colts. The off time is a good opportunity to listen to analysts like Greg Cosell, who joined KNBR today and shared his thoughts on rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first start this past weekend, a 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. What did the respected long-time analyst think of the 21-year-old's starting debut? Lance ran the football 16 times for 89 yards, which was a bit unexpected considering head coach Kyle Shanahan had said that fans could expect the rookie looking more like a quarterback and less like a running back in the game,
