Tomsula: ‘We have no right to overlook anyone’

Dec 14, 2015 at 12:42 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula spoke to the media today. As far as injuries go, LG Alex Boone, who was injured on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, is having an MRI today. He confirmed that RB Kendall Gaskins did indeed suffer a concussion and is going through the concussion protocol this week. WR Torrey Smith is being treated for the back spasms that kept bringing him out of Sunday's game. DB Jimmie Ward suffered an elbow contusion and not a break.

Many of the questions focused around player comments following the game. Tomsula disagreed with LT Joe Staley and his comments that the team may have overlooked the Browns. "Maybe he was speaking from a personal note. I don't know," said Tomsula. "Number one, we have no right to overlook anyone. Number two, in the NFL, I don't care if you are 14-0, you better not overlook anyone."

"We didn't execute. I didn't see an effort problem," said Tomsula regarding the loss on Sunday.

Tomsula confirmed that his coaching staff would not change for the team's final three games.

When asked if there were younger guys that the team would like to take a look at, Tomsula said, "No. I think you've seen us working everybody all year."

The 49ers run defense was atrocious during Sunday's loss. Tomsula feels that the defensive mistakes are correctable.

The 49ers cut things fairly short when it came to post-practice media sessions on Saturday, but that doesn't mean there weren't any items of interest to pass along. Quarterback Trey Lance and rookie wide receiver Danny Gray were the only players to speak to reporters after practice on Saturday, and each of them talked about a number of topics. Lance spoke about what he's seen from a number of veterans and young players on offense, while Gray discussed where he is in his development since being selected by the 49ers in Round 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft. And there was another rookie on Saturday who put on a memorable show at practice, albeit in a unique way. Here's a rundown of what was discussed Saturday afternoon. * Welcome back



Drake Jackson's usage might vary week to week; Young 49ers CBs have an opportunity vs. Packers

Maybe soon, Drake Jackson will become the complementary bookend to Nick Bosa that the San Francisco 49ers envisioned for Dee Ford. That was the hope when the team used its first selection in this year's draft, a second-round pick, on the defensive end out of USC. DeMeco Ryans is in his second year as the 49ers' defensive coordinator. He is working to ensure young players like Jackson are prepared for the rigors of an NFL season. He also wants to put those players in the best position to succeed. Their success is the 49ers' success, after all. For now, it looks like the 49ers have Samson Ebukam penciled in as the starter opposite Bosa. That role should eventually land with Jackson. "With Drake, he's coming along," Ryans told reporters after Wednesday's practice.



49ers may have two rookies starting in 2022

Once drafted, rookies have an uphill battle to become a starter. Usually, first- and second-round picks are a lock to start, but with the San Francisco 49ers, that hasn't necessarily been the case unless your name is Nick Bosa (first-round pick, 2019) or Deebo Samuel (second-round pick, 2019). In 2020, the 49ers selected two first-round picks, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, and their time was limited as rookies. Aiyuk became a starter due to injuries in the wide receivers room, and in 2021, his role was diminished. Aiyuk started the 2021 season in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house, and he could barely crack the starting lineup. Kinlaw was considered the replacement for Deforest Buckner, but he couldn't stay on the field during his rookie and
