Parrish may practice next week

SF49ers.com reports San Francisco 49ers S Tony Parrish (leg) could return to practice as early as next week after breaking his leg last season. "He looked good running up and down the sideline," said head coach Mike Nolan. "It's a possibility. We'll certainly be talking about it next week."

Hill signing could push Pickett to a new position

Kevin Lynch, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports the signing of QB Shaun Hill by the San Francisco 49ers may force 49ers' QB Cody Pickett to a different position. Last year, he dabbled as a coverage man on punts and kickoffs and did well as a receiver on the scout team in practice. Coaches have discussed moving Pickett to receiver. "I want to be here," Pickett said. "If they want me to play receiver, I'll do it." So far in the OTAs, Pickett mainly has played quarterback. But when training camp begins, he might be splitting time between receiver and quarterback.

Torrey not at practice yet

Roger Phillips, of the Oakland Tribune, reports newly added San Francisco 49ers LB Andre Torrey was not at practice Monday, June 5.

Adams and Williams to compete for a starting spot

SF49ers.com reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan said he expects S Mike Adams and S Chad Williams to compete for a starting safety spot, once injured S Tony Parrish returns. "Chad Williams is a good addition," said Nolan. "Without a question in my mind, he fits in to the picture with us defensively, not only because of his safety ability because of his third down ability. He's been a very effective player the last few years in the NFL. He's doing a good job."

Battle expected back Tuesday

SF49ers.com reports San Francisco 49ers WR Arnaz Battle (knee) is expected to return to practice Tuesday, June 6, according to head coach Mike Nolan. Battle missed practice Monday, June 5, due to swelling in his knee. "I had another MRI done and there are no problems structurally or anything," said Battle. "My knee is still stable but I had some swelling in there because of the workload. It's frustrating not to be out there taking reps but I don't expect it to be a lingering problem."

John Lynch explains the 49ers re-signing Jason Verrett

By David Bonilla
May 3

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed oft-injured cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal on Monday. For the team, it was worth the risk. When Verrett, who entered 2021 as the 49ers' starting cornerback, is healthy, he plays like one of the top corners in the league. The problem is his healthy seasons seem few and far between. Verrett has been in the NFL for eight seasons and has landed on injured reserve during six of those. Verrett's two healthy seasons, though, were impressive. In 2015, he recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a touchdown, and 12 passes defensed, earning a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 88.4 and Pro Bowl selection. Verrett signed with the 49ers in 2019 and again struggled with injuries in that first season with the team. But a

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch stated that the rookie minicamp would kick off on May 12. However, that appears to be when first-year players can report to the team. The NFL announced today that the 49ers' rookie minicamp would take place May 13-15, two weeks after the draft. It will be the first opportunity for 49ers coaches to see its latest draft class, which includes nine players, on the practice field. In addition, several undrafted free agents will join them, along with some players looking to try out for the team. The 49ers drafted the following players in the 2022 NFL Draft. Round 2: Drake Jackson, DE, USC Round 3: Ty Davis-Price, RB, LSU Round 3: Danny Gray, WR. SMU Round 4: Spencer Burford,

Around the NFL writer Dan Hanzus provided his updated power rankings after the 2022 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers remained at the No.5 spot, with no movement post draft. Hanzus offered no comments on the 49ers draft selections but he did comment on the availability of All-Pro Deebo Samuel. Hanzus writes: "Meanwhile, the Niners don't seem at all eager to move superstar wide receiver Deebo Samuel, trade demand be damned. Kyle Shanahan said on Friday the 49ers have yet to receive an offer that was



The impact John Lynch believes Drake Jackson will have on the 49ers defense

By David Bonilla
May 3

The San Francisco 49ers' first selection of the 2022 NFL Draft didn't come until day two on Friday. Thanks to last year's trade package to move up to select quarterback Trey Lance, the team lacked a first-round pick. When the Niners' first selection came around, at No. 61 overall, the team again opted to bolster its defensive line, selecting former USC defensive end Drake Jackson. San Francisco has now used its first selection on a defensive lineman in six of the past eight drafts. The 49ers have focused a lot on keeping its defensive line well-stocked with talent, believing that making the pass rush a top priority will help every other position on defense. San Francisco added veteran pass rusher Dee Ford in 2019, just before drafting Nick Bosa,
