49ers’ Emmanuel Moseley working with Charvarius Ward to become a better press corner

Jul 28, 2022 at 9:11 AM--


Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is entering his fifth NFL season. That's the same experience—as far as years—as his new teammate, Charvarius Ward. In March, the San Francisco 49ers signed the 26-year-old Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million contract, bolstering the defensive back room.

While the two cornerbacks entered the league at the same time, Ward has over 1,000 more career snaps on defense (2,719 to 1,676). So Moseley knows there is a lot he can learn from Ward.

"He's a great press corner, so I'm learning from him," Moseley told reporters on Wednesday. "Just the attitude that he brings every day to the meetings, talking to the younger guys, and even coaching me up. I like Charvarius, and I'm ready to work with him."

Moseley has been focusing on becoming a better press cornerback, an area where he believes Ward has thrived.

"If you guys watch film, great press corner," Moseley continued. "So that's one thing that I'm working on, and I just feel like I can continue to get better. So he's just been teaching me that, teaching me to be patient at the line."

Moseley is determined to improve on and off the field. He is set on being a team leader and wants to ensure the younger players learn from his experience. In addition to adding Ward this offseason, the 49ers drafted two cornerbacks—Samuel Womack in the fifth round and Tariq Castro-Fields in the sixth round.

Last year, San Francisco drafted Ambry Thomas and Deommodore Lenoir, two young cornerbacks Moseley believes have made leaps in their second NFL seasons.

As veterans were allowed to scatter this offseason, Moseley stayed in Santa Clara to help the younger players' development.

"I stayed back so I could coach them up and let them know what to expect," Moseley explained. "I look at myself every day in the mirror and tell myself I'm a leader on this team and just believing in myself that when I go out there, they're going to look up to me. And I feel it, and I'm ready to take on that leadership role."

As for his role on the defense, some wonder if Moseley might spend at least some time at the nickel position in an effort by the 49ers to get their three best cornerbacks—Moseley, Ward, and Thomas—onto the field at the same time.

"I honestly don't know," Moseley admitted. "I wake up in the morning, come into the building, whatever coaches tell me to do, I just go out there and give it 100 percent."

Brandon Aiyuk: 'Enforcer' Deebo Samuel brings different energy to 49ers practice; Charvarius Ward a 'strong, physical corner'

Brandon Aiyuk spoke to reporters after Sunday's practice. The wide receiver is having a tremendous training camp in his third offseason with the San Francisco 49ers. Veteran safety Jimmie Ward has noticed a difference in the 24-year-old wideout, saying Aiyuk is one of this year's training camp standouts. That's high praise, considering the receiver's position a year ago. Aiyuk appeared to be a training camp disappointment last offseason, seemingly landing in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house and being limited to one catch for six yards in the 49ers' first two games. However, as the season progressed, the receiver turned things around and looks to be on course for a breakout



Charvarius Ward: 49ers secondary being overlooked; Brandon Aiyuk having a great camp

Charvarius Ward is a Super Bowl champion. Unfortunately for The Faithful, that championship win came against Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers. However, Ward doesn't feel he had a great outing on February 2, 2020. A lot of that was because of Shanahan's creative offense. "That was one of the worst games of my career, though, because Kyle was calling some plays," Ward told NBC Sports Bay Area's 49ers Talk podcast. "There would be like six guys going right, but the ball was going to the left, so my eyes were all over the place. I was still young, my second year in the NFL. I was in the Super Bowl, and Kyle was just drawing up these crazy plays." Once Ward hit free agency, knowing the talent level of the team and its head coach, he wanted to join



"We all trust in Trey": Charvarius Ward says 49ers' Lance will be a great NFL QB

In June, new San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward declared that quarterback Trey Lance is "going to show the world this season." Ward has only been in the NFL for four seasons. However, he knows a thing or two about great quarterbacks. He spent those four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, watching one of the best in the game—Patrick Mahomes. Of course, reporters wanted to ask Ward to compare Lance to Mahomes. The talented cornerback offered a humorous response. "Patrick, both of them going to be great quarterbacks," Ward answered. "They



49ers CB Charvarius Ward sidelined a couple of weeks with muscle strain, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers will be without their big offseason acquisition, cornerback Charvarius Ward, for a couple of weeks. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who joined KNBR on Wednesday morning, Ward is dealing with a muscle strain and will miss some time ahead of the regular season. "He had a little setback here with a muscle strain, so he'll be out here for the next probably two weeks or so," Shanahan said on the Murph & Mac show. "But he's gotten enough baseline in to where his camp has been perfect. At least now I know he's not going to get a serious injury here in the next two weeks, and he'll be ready to go here Week 1, though." San Francisco signed Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million deal in March. Ward, 26, has recorded 222 tackles, a
