Maiocco: Cornerbacks are the 49ers’ deepest group

Aug 6, 2016 at 10:09 AM--


Matt Maiocco joined Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game on Friday to discuss the San Francisco 49ers. One topic that he discussed was the deepest group on the team that has most impressed him this offseason – the cornerbacks.

"The deepest position group – and this might surprise you – it's a young group, they're going to have their growing pains, but I do think that there is a lot of talent there, and there should be a lot of talent seeing that they've used seven draft picks the last three years. I've really been impressed with the cornerbacks. Jimmie Ward making the transition over. Tramaine Brock is the veteran. But they have some young guys who have been very very competitive."

Maiocco went on to say that maybe he should temper that back a little bit because of the talent that the unit has gone up against, bringing up that the 49ers wide receivers are mostly young and inexperienced. However, Maiocco feels that the cornerbacks have been surprisingly good.

Want to know which group he felt was not deep at all? Listen to the entire segment at 95.7 The Game.

That's pretty much a given, and head coach Kyle Shanahan has said that the team will always look to improve, no matter the position. That includes quarterback. "You can't say anything with certainty," Shanahan said last week. "I mean, you don't sit here and make promises on anything. When we build a football team, it's your job to put the best team together year in and year out." While Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have expressed confidence that Jimmy Garoppolo will be
