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."

Silver: Some 49ers players and coaches believe team is better with Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers avoided a catastrophe by bringing back quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal. Trey Lance's season ending in Week 2 is disappointing. The worst-case scenario for this season would have been not having a quarterback capable of stepping in and keeping the team competitive. Holding onto Garoppolo once seemed like an unnecessary luxury. Now, some feel the team is better suited to make a deep playoff run than they were with the second-year quarterback. Garoppolo knows the offense and what is expected of him. He's been a part of the locker room since 2017. According to one report, inside the building, some feel the team is better equipped to compete with Garoppolo at the helm of the offense. "[T]his is the part

The sooner everyone moves on from the 49ers' dreadful 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night the better. But first, let's tie up some loose ends to come from Sunday's postgame interviews. Much of the postgame discussion surrounded the performance of the 49ers' offense, which was poor enough to squander a defensive effort that held the Broncos' offense to just nine points. But there was also some honesty regarding the loss of left tackle Trent Williams, some insight from head coach Kyle Shanahan on why he declined an important first half penalty, and much more. Let's get into a roundup of some of Sunday's postgame comments in this edition of 49ers Notebook. George Kittle's honesty on the loss of Trent Williams and the performance of the
