The 21-year-old Trey Lance continues to earn praise from his teammates. The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback is preparing to enter his first NFL training camp and hopes to show off how his hard work in the past month has led to improvement. During the players' time off, several videos surfaced of Lance taking part in throwing sessions, taking what he learned from the offseason program to sharpen his skills. One of the players Lance threw to last month is teammate Mohamed Sanu. The two also worked out together in Southern California. The wide receiver hopes to make his

Last week, Madden released their annual ratings for the top players at every position, which, like always, came with a barrage of controversy and angry fans. Trey Lance's rating came along with those first releases, earning a 74 overall, behind the likes of Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson, who went with the two picks ahead of him in the 2021 Draft, respectively. Lawrence earned a 78, while Jets rookie Zach Wilson earned a 75. Justin Fields, who was drafted by the Chicago Bears, earned a 74, tying Trey Lance for the third-highest ranking, while Mac Jones of the Patriots came in 5th, earning a 71 overall. Interestingly, the rookie quarterback ratings came in the same order that these players were drafted this offseason. Lawrence went first, Wilson

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the

During a segment on Inside Training Camp Live, NFL Network's Steve Mariucci, or "Mooch" as he is known to fans, was asked to share his thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers as the team prepares for the 2021 season. It sounds like the analyst, like fans, has high expectations for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad. While 2020 was a disappointment, the team owned the most injury-plagued roster in the league. The campaign wasn't what coaches, players, and fans envisioned for an organization coming off of a Super Bowl appearance. "This team, the 49ers, [were] 6-10, last place, and they might have the best roster in football," Mariucci told Andrew
