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.

As soon as the team traded up to the No. 3 overall spot, NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein felt Trey Lance to the San Francisco 49ers made a lot of sense. To him and many others, it certainly made more sense than drafting Mac Jones. "When you look at this, to me, OK, big, mobile, has experience under center, is highly intelligent, even as a young player," Zierlein explained on Friday during a KNBR interview. "Trey Lance is a guy that made perfect sense." There is some uncertainty surrounding when fans will get a good look at Lance running the 49ers offense.
