The San Francisco 49ers are back at practice, and while team drills are no longer open to the media, there is enough to glean from the rest of practice to keep things interesting. Monday’s session provided some details about Zane Beadles and Anthony Davis.
At the end of the open portion, Cam Inman tweeted out that Zane Beadles was getting some snaps at center. Marcus Martin has struggled early in his NFL career, and seems to be running out of opportunities. He is currently the backup center, but if the team can find a better option, it will make sense to clear him out. Especially if that option is a starter who can move over. We saw the 49ers use Alex Boone as a swing tackle, even while starting at left guard.
Matt Maiocco reported in his Monday notes that Anthony Davis did some warm up work with the guards and centers. Davis played exclusively at right tackle in the second preseason game, a few days after getting his first guard work of training camp. Andrew Tiller is currently the starting right guard, while Beadles is starting at left guard. First round pick Joshua Garnett is working at left guard with the second team for the time being.
