Why Ambry Thomas is 'in a great spot' despite 49ers' offseason CB additions

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers bolstered their cornerback group this offseason. The team added Charvarius Ward via free agency and then drafted Samuel Womack and Tariq Castro-Fields. As a result, fewer see the cornerback position as a significant weakness. There is considerable depth there now, with Ward, Emmanuel Moseley, and the potential return of Jason Verrett. Cornerback Ambry Thomas struggled early but ended hot during his rookie 2021 campaign. So what do the offseason additions mean for the second-year cornerback who started the final five games of last season and two playoff games? "The fact that AT, he earned that opportunity [to start] as he kept coming through the season," defensive pass-game specialist and secondary coach Cory Undlin said this week, via the

The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 9 in ESPN's post-draft power ranking. If you were upset about that underwhelming result, the Bay Area squad's placement in ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI) isn't going to make you any happier. San Francisco came in at No. 24 in the FPI rankings, at 6.1 points worse than the metric of an average NFL team on a neutral

San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team's young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you'll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season. Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB. It's baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they're pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade



Simms doubts 49ers' decision to draft Trey Lance: 'I'm not sold on his potential'

The San Francisco 49ers' second-year quarterback, Trey Lance, has been the target of much scrutiny this offseason. A lot of it seems based on the team's decision to hold onto veteran Jimmy Garoppolo without fully considering why. Garoppolo remains on the 49ers roster because no one has made a trade offer, not necessarily because the coaches doubt Lance's readiness. Of course, that could be speculation too. However, it's based on the narrative the 49ers have laid out and not the narrative created by the national media. Speaking of national media, Chris Simms of NBC Sports created some chatter after ranking Lance at No. 31 in his top 40 quarterback ranking. His
