Day 1 of the San Francisco 49ers training camp is officially over, as head coach Kyle Shanahan conducted a light, padless practice where the team installed primary shorter-area concepts, as well as various facets of the run game.

Both the offense and the defense had their moments on Day 1, with a ton of spotlight being shined on the quarterbacks.

Here are all the sights and videos of Day 1 of Training Camp, including Trey Lance's new mechanics, which were on full display Wednesday.

Full Breakdown of Day 1

For a full breakdown of Day 1, listen to our podcast recapping every detail I saw during Day 1 of training camp, from the quarterbacks to standout players to those to keep an eye out for and more.

Trey Lance's new mechanics

Trey Lance's new mechanics, which included a quicker throwing motion than the one displayed earlier in his career, was on display Wednesday, as he and Sam Darnold took turns in a variety of drills run by quarterbacks coach Brian Griese.

Here are other drills that Lance and Darnold were involved in, helping them with aspects like their follow-through, setting their feet, and working on different aspects of the game against air.

First on the field

Last season, safety Talanoa Hufanga made waves during training camp by appearing as the first player out on the field before practice to warm up over 30 minutes before the scheduled start of each training camp day.

Beginning that trend during his rookie season, the hard work has clearly paid off, as Hufanga was a first-team All-Pro in his first year as a full-time starter.

This offseason, Hufanga returned to the field as early as before prior to practices, but there was already a fellow teammate out there ahead of him. Who's taken the reign of being the first 49er on the field for practice?

DC Steve Wilks leading drills

Wednesday was the first training camp practice where fans saw defensive coordinator Steve Wilks run the defensive drills, as he joined the organization just a few months ago following the departure of DeMeco Ryans, who became the head coach of the Houston Texans.

Wilks was hands-on during several drills, and was especially vocal when working with the defensive backs unit. Here's a clip of him coaching his new team on Day 1 of training camp.

QB Kyle

Kyle Shanahan activates his quarterback sense every training camp when working with the defense, serving as the quarterback when the defense operates out of its shell.

However, Shanahan started his quarterback duties early this season, as he was seen tossing the ball around with his two sons during the early portion of practice.

Stay tuned for all the latest videos and sights from 49ers training camp tomorrow!

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on. But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss. So we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to see what questions you had about the team. Let's jump in and take a look. Who are you hoping for (as defensive coordinator)? - Brian J.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
