49ers safety Tavon Wilson impresses coaches after stepping into starting role

Last week, the 49ers placed starting strong safety Jaquiski Tartt on the reserve/COVID-19 list to begin training camp, paving the way for new 49er Tavon Wilson to take the starting safety snaps. After a week, he has drawn the praises of his coaches and teammates for his play and energy coming into training camp. The 31-year old defensive back was originally brought in during the beginning of the offseason, coming off a season with the Indianapolis Colts, with which he played fifteen games. While Wilson is on the wrong side of 30, he has been primarily healthy as a contributor in his NFL career, which is something the 49ers need at the defensive back position. On Wednesday, defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans shared his thoughts on how

NFL Network's analytics expert, Cynthia Frelund, recently went around the NFC and named one player for each team who she projects as its most improved player. "Using my forward-looking data models, I've identified one player from each NFL team who projects to see such an uptick in 2021 based on their performance trajectory and the scheme they'll be playing in this season," wrote Frelund. Second-year defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw is that player for the San Francisco 49ers. The nearly 320-pound defender's rookie statistics weren't overly impressive. However, his game film and work in the trenches often showed much potential, setting him up as a good choice for Frelund's pick. "Kinlaw's official rookie stat line: 1.5 sacks, 19 pressures, three TFLs,



"It's like he's a different player": 49ers impressed with Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason

Yesterday, Michael Silver of NFL Media shared quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's response to potentially being pulled off the field for situational packages designed exclusively for rookie Trey Lance. Garoppolo said all the right things, as you would expect, but also noted that he's never had to deal with a situation like that. After all, the only time he's stepped off the field in the last three seasons was due to injuries. "I mean, if it could help the offense, help the team, I think that would be a good thing," Garoppolo told Silver. "I think when you get into that two-quarterback system, it gets tough at times, but we'll see when we get there." Today,



49ers' Fred Warner is helping usher in a 'new age' of linebackers

Fred Warner has proven that he can do it all. That's why the San Francisco 49ers recently locked up their star linebacker to a massive contract extension, ensuring he remains with the team for years to come. Warner represents a change in the prototypical NFL linebacker. Athleticism and versatility have become more important than the massive linebackers who were once the prototype. Who better to comment on that than the 49ers new defensive coordinator, DeMeco Ryans, who played the position for 10 seasons at a weight of around 250 pounds? Now, Warner is the new form factor for NFL linebackers, and that has Ryans excited about the player's future. "I think the way the game is changing with a lot more passing, a lot of spread offenses, you know, there's a lot of
