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.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

'Dominant in every facet': 49ers' Trent Williams tops ESPN's ranking of offensive tackles

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler continues to look at position groups across the NFL and rank the best players within each. His latest effort was ranking the league's top offensive tackles. Fowler's list is based on input from around the NFL. He surveyed over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players to compile it. "The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple." Last year, the San Francisco 49ers acquired Trent Williams from the Washington Football Team to



'What's with their coach?': 49ers' Jimmie Ward feels disrespected by Rams' Sean McVay

Does Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay think less of safety Jimmie Ward than he should? The San Francisco 49ers defender appears to believe so. In a conversation with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, the soon-to-be 30-year-old safety feels like McVay unfairly targets him, thinking he can take advantage of the veteran defensive back. The safety and beat writer remembered a matchup in 2019 when McVay tested Ward's coverage skills with several offensive players, likely thinking he could take advantage of the defender. "What's with their coach? Does he have the big head or something like (that)?" Ward told Cohn during

Some fans seem to relish the idea of their favorite team entering a season as an underdog. If you are one of those fans and cheer for the San Francisco 49ers, you will love Tyler Sullivan's recent feature for CBS Sports. The writer named the Bay Area squad in his list of the NFL's most overrated teams ahead of the 2021 season. Yes, San Francisco earned just six wins last season. However, as almost anyone will tell you while defending the team, the roster endured a historic number of injuries in a bizarre 2020. In fact,
