Aug. 21 Practice Notes

Aug 21, 2015 at 2:27 PM


Here is what some of the San Francisco 49ers beat writers had to say about today's practice held at the team headquarters.

Grant Cohn, The Press Democrat:

Aaron Lynch: Chased down and tag-sacked backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert on a play-action bootleg pass to the offense's right. Lynch seems in shape for the first time this offseason.

Rookie quarterback Dylan Thompson faked a handoff to his left, rolled back to his right and spotted wide receiver Nigel King open downfield ... Before Thompson threw the pass Tartt started accelerating toward King, and when the ball arrived Tartt swatted it to the ground.

Colin Kaepernick: Completed six of seven pass attempts including a 50-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline to Vernon Davis, who was being covered by cornerback Marcus Cromartie, who stopped running around the 25-yard line.


Cam Inman, The Mercury News:

Cornerback Keith Reaser finished an encouraging week of practice by remaining on the first-string unit, ahead of Shareece Wright.

Jarryd Hayne's ball-catching skills again were among the practice highlights. Hayne raced down the right sideline and grabbed a 25-yard pass from fellow rookie Dylan Thompson, splitting the deep coverage of Mylan Hicks and L.J. McCray.

Chuck Jacobs had the catch of the day, diving into the end zone and securing a pass from Dylan Thompson against Hicks' coverage.

The San Francisco 49ers hold defensive back Deommodore Lenoir in high regard. The team values versatility, and Lenoir has demonstrated to his coaches that he can be relied upon in various roles throughout the secondary. Whether lining up inside or outside, Lenoir's adaptability and consistent performance have made him an invaluable asset to the defense. 49ers defensive backs coach Daniel Bullocks believes Lenoir made a significant mental jump as a player last season, and the analytics back that up. Lenoir's 75.8 overall grade and 74.3 coverage grade from Pro Football Focus were career highs. Opposing quarterbacks had an 86.9 passer rating when throwing his way. "I say, mentally, he made his biggest jump [last year]," Bullocks told reporters last week. "I think
