49ers training camp begins this week

Jul 22, 2013 at 1:08 PM--




Training camp will open for the San Francisco 49ers this week. Rookies reported to the team's headquarters in Santa Clara on Friday, July 19. Veterans will arrive on Wednesday, July 24. The team's first full practice will be held on Thursday, July 25. Rookies will begin practices today.

Stories about hats and magazine spreads will likely start to take a backseat to real football related news.

One of the more interesting camp battles to keep an eye on will be at the cornerback position. The 49ers have been stocking up on corners during this offseason. The group already included Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Chris Culliver, Perrish Cox and Tramaine Brock. The 49ers also added free agent Nnamdi Asomugha and traded for Eric Wright. Rogers has one of the largest cap figures on the team this season and it will be interesting to see what happens if he can't hold on to his starting role.

Another key position to watch will be at the wide receiver position. It looked strong after the 49ers acquired Anquan Boldin in a trade on March 11. However, the 49ers lost starting receiver Michael Crabtree to a torn Achilles, which will keep him out of the lineup for the majority of the season. That will leave players like Mario Manningham, Kyle Williams, A.J. Jenkins, Ricardo Lockette, Quinton Patton and others to compete for spots in the depth chart.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is expecting to see some locker room pranks due to his nude appearance in ESPN The Magazine's Body issue. Prior to that, he received some negative comments for wearing a Miami Dolphins hat. he will finally be able to put all of that aside and prove on the field that last year was not a fluke.

The team also awaits word on a possible punishment for linebacker Ahmad Brooks due to an assault on a fellow teammate. A punishment could come from the NFL or even the 49ers themselves.

Nick Bosa will soon go through his first practices with the San Francisco 49ers since tearing his ACL last September, but if his offseason workouts are any indication, he appears to be ready to go. Bosa's 2020 season came to an end due to the injury, which took place against the New York Jets on September 20. He's been working on rehabbing the injury since then and has made it a point over the past few months to share videos on his progress, both in a public capacity and in private with the 49ers. "The coolest thing with Nick is he's pretty good with documenting his workouts and sending them our way," 49ers general manager John Lynch said during a media session

PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the
