49ers’ Emmanuel Moseley seeks to help Trey Lance, stop Brandon Aiyuk

Aug 4, 2022 at 11:41 AM--

Emmanuel Moseley is always open to helping his San Francisco 49ers teammates. One, however, doesn't seem to need any help. In fact, the fifth-year cornerback is looking to stop one teammate who has been a headache thus far for the defense.

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is having an excellent training camp, putting in day after day of impressive effort. The 49ers defensive backs have been praising Aiyuk, expecting the third-year wideout to have a breakout season.

"Right now, he's having an outstanding camp," safety Jimmie Ward said this week. "I feel like he's having the best camp out of everybody on the team, offense and defense."

Ward noted maybe only one player—pass rusher Nick Bosa—is having a better training camp. But, "Bosa's going to be Bosa," the safety added.

Another 49ers defensive back has been impressed by Aiyuk in practice.

"B.A. be having a great camp," cornerback Charvarius Ward said. "I love competing against B.A. He's got big hands, long arms, and he can jump like almost 60 inches in the air. He's great to compete against. ... I got big hands. His hands are bigger than mine. B.A. got the potential to be one of those great receivers. He can be a real wide receiver No. 1."

Moseley joined KNBR on Thursday morning and continued the trend of teammates throwing praise toward Aiyuk. However, Moseley admits he really wants the offensive player's domination to end.

"He's definitely showing up," Moseley said on the Murph & Mac show. "... Offense is making the defense better. Defense is making the offense better. We have our days, but he's coming out there, he's been probably the most consistent guy in camp, and that's going to get all of us better, definitely in the backend, et cetera. So we've got to put an end to it."

While Aiyuk may not need much help from his defensive teammates, Moseley is taking a different approach with his second-year quarterback, Trey Lance. The veteran cornerback is doing whatever he can to help last year's No. 3 overall pick.

"I think we have the best defense in the league, so if he can make plays against us, I know he can make plays on other people," Moseley shared. "But whatever I'm seeing, I go up to him in the locker room and maybe tell him what I saw on film. 'Hey, this is what I saw. This is why I did this, because I saw you do this.' You know, little things like that [which] can help him out, that can definitely take his game to the next level."

So the defensive back's mission for the rest of training camp: Help Lance but find a way to stop Aiyuk. That will help make everyone better.

Oliver signed a two-year deal with the Niners and will likely compete for the nickel cornerback spot made vacant by the departure of Jimmie Ward to the Houston Texans. Oliver has played 77 percent of his 510 defensive snaps in the slot over the last two seasons, per Pro Football Focus.
