49ers Training Camp Day 5 Breakdown: Offense

The San Francisco 49ers began padded training camp on Monday, marking their fifth practice of the month, and it was greeted with good news as wide receiver Deebo Samuel was present at practice after signing a three-year extension. years old Sunday.

The 49ers’ offensive starters remained the same as yesterday, with Jake Brendel starting as a center over Daniel Brunskill, and the two inside offensive linemen appeared to split reps evenly with the first-team offense on Monday.

Offense

Quarterbacks

Trey Lance completed 5/11 of his passes on Monday, with two touchdowns, one interception and a rushing touchdown.

Lance has been using his legs more than he did in the first week of training camp as he seems more comfortable basing his decisions on instinct, rather than forcing himself to stay in the pocket to try to make some throws.

Of Lance’s incomplete six, he had an abandoned pass, a throw due to pressure and a play where the offensive line didn’t move after the center broke the ball, allowing all four defensive linemen to play. reaching Lance, forcing him to throw a 50-50 pass to Malik Turner which became an incompleteness.

Lance threw another great through ball on Monday, hitting wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk again for a 40-yard pass after the wide receiver beat cornerback Emmanuel Moseley on a deep lane.

Nate Sudfeld had another day of ups and downs, completing 4/8 passes. All of Sudfeld’s completions, except for a nice 21 yards on a bootleg left from Deebo Samuel, were under ten yards.

Sudfeld continues to struggle with his pinpoint accuracy, knocking down receiver Malik Turner on a 20-yard pass downfield, as well as tight end Ross Dwelley in the end zone.

Purdy finished the day by completing 5/7 passes with a touchdown to Malik Turner on the last play of the day, as the receiver made a nice catch with cornerback Qwuantrezz Knight in coverage.

Purdy, like Sudfeld, only completed passes under ten overhead yards, but again showed good pocket presence, avoiding some pressure on some plays.

Running backs

Elijah Mitchell continues to be the No. 1 running back so far, but Trey Sermon has taken snaps with Trey Lance as quarterback.

Sermon was the clear RB2 on Monday, while Tyrion Davis-Price and Jordan Mason took the majority of other running back snaps.

The 49ers excelled trying to get out of the box on Monday but struggled to run inside as the inside offensive line failed to create holes for running backs.

An interesting development on Monday: Jeff Wilson Jr. didn’t practice due to an undisclosed injury, clearing the way for Mason to get extended reps, and the undrafted rookie showed up, catching three assists, all by having a strong physical run outside the zone. for a gain of 6 yards. He is a dormant contender to claim fourth running back on the 53-man roster.

Wide Receivers

Trey Lance and Brandon Aiyuk continued to strengthen their connection as the pair connected for a touchdown pass, as well as a 40-yard deep ball over Emmanuel Moseley.

Aiyuk has looked great over the past two days, showing his confidence in his abilities, and the rookie quarterback really shows that confidence in his receiver, tossing him 50-50 balls and allowing the Arizona State product to make some games.

Ray-Ray McCloud and Jauan Jennings were disappointing today as neither could separate against the defence, earning no holds that day.

Malik Turner continues to see runs with the first- and second-team defense, and had a nice touchdown catch to end the practice on a throw from Brock Purdy.

tight ends

George Kittle caught three passes on Monday, building on his strong performance in training camp, including a touchdown with cornerback Darqueze Dennard covering on a seven-yard throw from Trey Lance.

Wide receiver turned tight end Jordan Matthews, who had been the second-best tight end in training camp, appeared to be injured after an awkward landing, as he limped and clutched his left knee/ankle. His diagnosis is currently unknown.

None of the other tight ends really got much action on Monday, and the battle for those spots behind Kittle continues as the pads roll in.

offensive line

The offensive line had its ups and downs on Monday, as left tackle Trent Williams and right tackle Mike McGlinchey were both excellent on Sunday, with the former not allowing pressure, while the latter gave none. just one to Nick Bosa, while locking him in on other rushing reps.

However, both tackles were limited, forcing Jaylon Moore and Justin Skule to spend time with the first team, and centers were constantly changing between Jake Brendel and Daniel Brunskill, which meant there was an abundance of movement along. the offensive line for the 49ers. .

The inside offensive line struggled to block on Monday, although the play in the outside court appeared to be revamped, as Aaron Banks, Spencer Burford and whoever was in the center never really seemed to be in cohesion with each other in the zone blocking scheme. .

However, with Williams and McGlinchey at the helm, there were some great runs out of bounds, including a six-yard gain from Trey Sermon.

The backup offensive line continues to struggle as undrafted rookie Sam Schlueter appears to be the only bright spot at tackle for second- or third-team units.

Hopefully Williams and McGlinchey continue to increase their training load to provide more opportunities to see the first-team offensive line together.
