San Francisco 49ers insider for CSN Bay Area, Matt Maiocco, joined Chad, Joe & Lo on 95.7 The Game to discuss a number of topics related to the team's first preseason matchup of the season. One of the topics that he touched on was the battle between OT Anthony Davis and OT Trent Brown for the right spot along the offensive line.

"I would think that Anthony Davis' experience ultimately is going to give him the nod," said Maiocco. "He's doing a pretty good job. Last night, there was a play where he was peaking inside, let the outside linebacker get around him for a pretty clean sack and afterward, Chip [Kelly] kind of downplayed that and said that there was something ... not necessarily putting it all onto Davis. That there were other things going on in that play and other assignments across the board that maybe were a little bit lacking on that.

"Trent Brown has done pretty well. He's a big guy, young guy obviously. But you know, Anthony Davis is young too so we'll let that one play out. I still think that Davis has the advantage. Trent Brown has only started two games in the NFL."

Listen to the entire segment on 95.7 The Game with the Anthony Davis vs Trent Brown portion starting at about the 6:20 mark.

Brown concluded the season as Pro Football Focus' fourth-highest-graded rookie safety (73.4) and was the 49ers' highest-graded safety overall.

Speaking at this year's NFL Scouting Combine, general manager John Lynch reflected on Brown's pre-draft impression and impact this past season. "I was real
