Joshua Garnett joins 49ers practice for the first time

Jun 7, 2016 at 10:30 AM--


San Francisco 49ers first round selection, OG Joshua Garnett, has joined his team for practice for the first time as the team reconvenes today for a mandatory minicamp. Garnett had been unable to participate in the 49ers' offseason program due to NFL rules.

NFL rules prohibit rookies from participating in offseason work until their school's senior class has finished their terms, even if that rookie has already graduated.

Last week, OT Joe Staley expressed how important it was for Garnett to join his teammates and shared his feelings on the NFL rule that kept him out. "I think that's a weird rule. I don't want to get started on that," Staley told the media.



Garnett was selected with the 28th overall selection in April. The 49ers traded up to make the selection. He was the 2015 John Outland Trophy Winner, an award given to the most outstanding interior lineman of the year.

The good news is that Kittle was back on the field during the 49ers' first offensive drive of the second half.
