Turner looks comfortable

Kevin Lynch, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner appears to be comfortable in his new role. A revitalized Turner will try to lift the 49ers' offense, ranked 32nd last season, beginning July 27, when the team reports to Santa Clara for training camp. He got a good start during the 49ers' three weeks of organized team activities in June. Often, Turner's voice rang above all others during team scrimmages. "I don't remember Norv being that vocal," said 49ers head coach Mike Nolan, who was Turner's defensive coordinator from 1997 through 1999, when Turner coached the Washington Redskins. Turner is looking forward to coaxing the young 49ers. "They are a fun group to be around," Turner said. "The one thing I like about them is that they are real sharp." He has already impressed 49ers players with what's known as the "digital" offense, which he helped create. Unlike the West Coast offense, in which pass routes have names, the digital offense's pass routes are based on a numerical system.

Pro Football Focus looked at the entire 2022 NFL Draft and identified some of the biggest draft steals. The San Francisco 49ers didn't own a first-round pick but did have nine picks starting with No. 61 overall in the second round. With that selection, the Niners added defensive end Drake Jackson out of USC, and the analytics site sees the pick as a great value for the NFC West team. "San Francisco got a promising developmental pass-rusher with Drake Jackson much later than any team should have," wrote Anthony

Over the weekend, the San Francisco 49ers made quarterback Brock Purdy the No. 262 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He was the final selection in this year's draft, making Purdy "Mr. Irrelevant."

He registered five tackles during Week 1 this past season before suffering a season-ending torn ACL, landing on injured reserve for the sixth time in eight seasons. Verrett, 30, has recorded 145 tackles,
