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.

"It's time to get it done," Bosa declared. Those few words captured the pass rusher's mentality heading into the 2024 season.

How George Kittle responded to a question about 49ers' Super Bowl strategy

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs? Kittle didn't immediately have an answer. However, after reflecting on the game, he prioritized better ball protection, feeling that might have made the difference. The fumble by running back Christian McCaffrey during the opening drive is the one play that sticks out in the tight end's mind. "I think if we could [avoid] that turnover, I think that's a difference," Kittle stated.
