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.

Trent Williams, Brandon Aiyuk expect 49ers to be better with Trey Lance at QB

The San Francisco 49ers expect things to be different with Trey Lance under center. The second-year quarterback takes the reins from Jimmy Garoppolo, who the team still hopes to trade. While Lance is inexperienced, many believe he has a high ceiling and can be the type of dual-threat player that gives opposing defenses headaches. "He's giving everybody confidence," tackle Trent Williams told NFL Network's Steve Mariucci and Michael Yam after Tuesday's practice. "He's giving everybody confidence in his ability and his poise, the way he commands the huddle. I say all the time that I'm impressed that he [doesn't] make the same mistake twice, and I think, from a young quarterback, that's all you can ask for because they're going to make mistakes, and that's part of the learning

Trey Lance improving thanks to help from 49ers locker neighbors

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is learning. He's had a lot of help, though. Last season, he spent his first year in the NFL learning from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, serving as the veteran's backup. Lance has one of the best coaching staffs in the NFL helping him develop. While Garoppolo works on preparing for his next chapter elsewhere, other veteran teammates have stepped in to work with Lance and offer advice. Two of those veterans are his locker room neighbors, safety Jimmie Ward and cornerback Jason Verrett. The arrangement probably isn't a coincidence. Ward and Verrett are two of the best pass defenders on the 49ers defense. During Saturday's practice, Ward hauled in a Lance-thrown football. That will likely spark some conversation in the

On Tuesday, things got snippy between San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and linebacker Fred Warner. The two were involved in scuffles during practice, forcing head coach Kyle Shanahan to pause the session and address his team. "It's hot today, so tempers flaring today," Aiyuk said after practice. "But it's football. Football season's here. ... The defense came out here with a great intensity the last couple of days, so we've got to wake the offense up one way or another." Aside from the heated on-field interactions with one of the league's best linebackers, Aiyuk has impressed his defensive teammates during training camp. One defender went as far as
