Watch: 49ers provide first look at Trey Lance, others during OTAs

May 23, 2022 at 8:25 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) on Monday. The first on-field session wasn't open to the media, though. Reporters will get their first look at the players on Tuesday.

The 49ers did offer a glimpse of Monday's action, posting a video of players going through practice.


The video provides a quick look at Trey Lance, last year's No. 3 overall pick, and many others. Most expect the second-year quarterback to be the 49ers' starter in 2022. There has been no shortage of national media questioning his readiness to lead the offense after serving as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup last season and starting just two games as a rookie.

OTAs will offer Lance the first opportunity for the 22-year-old quarterback to quiet his skeptics.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan and various players are scheduled to speak to reporters after Tuesday's practice.

Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your



Five Reasons to Trust Trey Lance as 49ers' Quarterback

With the debate raging in the media and fandom about whether Trey Lance will start this year, an important fact has been lost by some. The team says Lance will start. That begs several questions. What kind of quarterback is Trey Lance? What can fans expect from this fledgling play-caller? Can Lance buck the "Shanahan Curse" and win without changing his first name to "Jimmy?" These are fair questions (Well, maybe the last one is a bit facetious.). With all this in mind, here are five reasons to trust Trey Lance as the 49ers' starting quarterback this season: He has displayed incredible athletic potential. Trey Lance's college tape litters the internet. It isn't unusual to discover hours of footage covering all the plays



Sam Acho picks 49ers' Trey Lance as 2nd-year QB to make biggest jump in 2022

Last week, ESPN analyst Rob Ninkovich looked at the 2021 rookie quarterback class and stated he expects Trey Lance to make the "biggest jump" in Year 2. Another ESPN analyst, Sam Acho, agrees with that prediction. Why is Lance the best second-year quarterback, in Acho's opinion? It's because of the weapons around him. The 22-year-old quarterback will have wide receiver Deebo Samuel (assuming the offseason rift can be mended) and tight end George Kittle at his disposal. "Yes, there was a reason Zach Wilson was the second pick overall last year," Acho said. "There's a reason Trey Lance was third, right? Because he's that good as well." More critical for



Jerry Rice on why 49ers QB Trey Lance is 'ready to go'

Jerry Rice seems to be all aboard the Trey Lance train as the 2022 San Francisco 49ers season approaches. The legendary former 49ers receiver spoke briefly about Lance with KSBW-TV in Monterey this week while he was in the area promoting his energy drink, G.O.A.T. Fuel. Rice was asked about Lance during his appearance and said he likes his dual threat potential over what Jimmy Garoppolo brings to the table and that he thinks Lance is ready to take over the team's starting quarterback spot this season. "Trey Lance, I think he's ready to go," Rice said. "And I think he's incredible because he has that one aspect that Jimmy doesn't have, and that's the threat of running with the ball and stuff like that. So his mobility, his strong arm, and this guy, he's before his
