49ers Minicamp Link Dump/Open Thread

New, comments

It's official: The new 49ers are in uniform for the first time since free agency and the draft.  The May mini-camp is underway and I thought I'd set this thread up for any articles or thoughts people may have.  There are plenty of places to find eyewitness information.  Rather than link to every post by Maiocco or Barrows check out:

The most interest information is of course who has been lining up with the first team offense and defense:

offense
LT: Joe Staley
LG: Adam Snyder
C: Eric Heitmann
RG: Tony Wragge
RT: Jonas Jennings
TE: Vernon Davis
RB: Frank Gore
FB: Moran Norris
WR: Isaac Bruce
WR: Bryant Johnson
QB: Alex Smith

Defense
RDE: Justin Smith
NT: Aubrayo Franklin
LDE: Isaac Sopoaga
OLB: Tully Banta-Cain
OLB: Parys Haralson
ILB: Patrick Willis
ILB: Jeff Ulbrich
SS: Michael Lewis
FS: Mark Roman
CB: Walt Harris
CB: Nate Clements


With Baas injured, it makes sense for Wragge to get the initial start at right guard.  I would assume training camp will see Chilo Rachal getting playing time with the first string offense.  Apparently Dontarrious Thomas and Brandon Moore lined up as inside linebackers with the second team.  Reports after the draft
indicated Moore would back up Willis, while Ulbrich and Thomas would split time at the Ted.  And with Manny Lawson rehabbing his injury, Haralson gets the first team nod for now.

As more information comes up I'll do what I can to get it posted here.  In the meantime, feel free to use this as a thread for mini-camp discussions (and anything else really).  I'd expect that we wouldn't see anybody getting much of a bump in the depth chart after a weekend mini-camp, but I'd imagine crazier things have happened.
