Golden Nuggets: At the OTA's

Thearon W. Henderson

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

The beat reporters were out in full force at yesterday's team activities, so they have plenty to write about from veterans to rookies. There are quite a few interesting developments and most of them are welcome ones. The best one for me is Marcus Lattimore looking for more action. He's got a lot of potential and how he performs going forward will be a good indicator if Trent Baalke's redshirt strategy during previous drafts will pay off.

It's also good to see Jonathan Martin back in practice since he will provide good depth at both guard and tackle positions. Vernon Davis and Alex Boone are still absent but I have confidence that our front office will be able to sort out their grievances. And finally, make sure you get down to the last link where Baalke himself is featured on MMQB. On to the links!

It really comes as no surprise, since we've known how professional the 49ers locker room is, so it's no surprise to see Jonathan Martin fitting right in. | Jonathan Martin happy with 49ers' locker-room environment (Inman)

Team Notes

I've long felt that Colin Kaepernick does a good job of protecting himself and staying away from big hits. | Mobile Quarterbacks and Injury Risk (Football Outsiders)
