49ers to start 3-day rookie minicamp on May 13

May 3, 2022 at 10:09 AM--

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch stated that the rookie minicamp would kick off on May 12. However, that appears to be when first-year players can report to the team. The NFL announced today that the 49ers' rookie minicamp would take place May 13-15, two weeks after the draft.

It will be the first opportunity for 49ers coaches to see its latest draft class, which includes nine players, on the practice field. In addition, several undrafted free agents will join them, along with some players looking to try out for the team.

The 49ers drafted the following players in the 2022 NFL Draft.

  • Round 2: Drake Jackson, DE, USC
  • Round 3: Ty Davis-Price, RB, LSU
  • Round 3: Danny Gray, WR. SMU
  • Round 4: Spencer Burford, OL, Texas-San Antonio
  • Round 5: Samuel Womack, CB. Toledo
  • Round 6: Nick Zakelj, OT. Fordham
  • Round 6: Kalia Davis, DT. UCF
  • Round 6: Tariq Castro-Fields, CB. Penn State
  • Round 7: Brock Purdy, QB, Iowa State

Kalia Davis won't be among those on the practice field. He is still recovering from an ACL injury suffered in October.

The team recently announced the signings of these 14 undrafted free agents.

  • Kevin Atkins, DL, Fresno State
  • Jeremiah Gemmel, LB, North Carolina
  • Tayler Hawkins, S, San Diego State
  • Qwuantrezz Knight, CB, UCLA
  • Taysir Mack, WR, Pittsburgh
  • Tay Martin, WR, Oklahoma State
  • Jordan Mason, RB, Georgia Tech
  • Marcelino McCrary-Ball, LB, Indiana
  • Segun Olubi, LB, San Diego State
  • Leon O'Neal Jr., S, Texas A&M
  • Jason Poe, OL, Mercer
  • Sam Schlueter, OL, Minnesota
  • Garrett Walston, TE, North Carolina
  • Dohnovan West, OL, Arizona State

Running back Cyrus Habibi-Likio of Boise State is among those invited to try out.

Each team may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, beginning on May 16. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of the post-draft rookie minicamp.

In February, Vic Fangio met with the San Francisco 49ers, and some felt he might join the team as a consultant for the 2022 season. However, it was later reported that the longtime coach would be taking a year off. Fangio served as the 49ers' defensive coordinator from 2011-14 before serving in the same role with the Chicago Bears (2015-18) and then the Denver Broncos head coach (2019-21). San Francisco looked to bring Fangio back when Kyle Shanahan became the head coach in 2017, but Fangio couldn't get out of his contract with the Bears. Fangio is back in Santa

The San Francisco 49ers had their first day of rookie minicamp on Friday, in which the drills consisted of primarily 7-on-7s, as there was a lack of available offensive and defensive lineman for 11-on-11s. While there isn't normally much to take away from the first day of drills, here are three encouraging reports from Friday's start to rookie minicamp. 1. Danny Gray impresses Gray, a third-round selection in last month's NFL Draft, was reportedly the best player at minicamp, and it wasn't close. Gray showcased his speed on a number of occasions in 7-on-7s, including a near 50-yard touchdown catch when he got behind fellow rookie Tariq Castro-Fields in coverage for the score.

San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers' rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday. Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. However, Gray's talents aren't limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame. When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his

Why 49ers rookie C Dohnovan West might've gone undrafted

The San Francisco 49ers were considered by many as one of the winners of the undrafted free agent process, signing centers Dohnovan West and Jason Poe alongside a slew of potential contributors to round out their 90-man roster. West, a prospect many in the media believed would be drafted in the mid to late rounds, did not end up hearing his name called, making him one of the most sought-after undrafted free agents of the class. He quickly signed with the 49ers, who reportedly gave him $100,000 in guaranteed money with a $10,000 signing bonus. Why did West go undrafted?
