OK, maybe not "important" exactly. But hey, it's something, sort of. The 49ers wrapped up their first day of OTAs on Tuesday, and have nine more, plus mandatory minicamp. The team will open up practice to the media on Thursday, and that is when we will really start to get a handle on how things are developing.
We probably will not get any earth-shattering revelations on Thursday, but it will allow us to get some ideas about the depth chart. When we are talking about no live contact, and never more than shorts and shells, we can't exactly make hard conclusions. We can start to develop some ideas about things, so that is certainly better than nothing.
