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.

The San Francisco 49ers will have more than enough pieces in place to be a Super Bowl contender once again next season, but Sunday's NFC Championship loss against the Philadelphia Eagles will sting for some time considering how much talent the team had on the roster. The 31-7 loss to the Eagles was the second consecutive NFC Championship defeat for the 49ers, who were looking to get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2019. After the game a few 49ers players spoke about the future, which remains bright but also carries a little uncertainty considering the fact some key pieces may not return. "Guys are obviously emotional," linebacker Fred Warner said. "I've been here before where you lose in the biggest moment and it's a hard pill to swallow. You

The 49ers have a number of players slated for free agency and will have to make some tough decisions on who will stay and who will go.

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
