Football season is around the corner everyone! The San Francisco 49ers revealed their offseason program on Monday and they will begin the program next Monday, April 10th. They could have started it this week because they are going through a coaching change. But new coach Kyle Shanahan had a late start to his head coaching duties due to coaching in the Super Bowl and he opted to delay the program one week. He wants extra time to prep with his coaching staff.
The first phase of the offseason program goes from April 10th-13th and the 18th-21st. Voluntary minicamp will be from April 25th-27th. Phase 2 of the program runs from May 1st-4th, May 8th-11, and May 16th-18th. Rookie minicamp will be from May 5th-7th. OTAs will be from May 22nd-23rd, May 25th, May 30th-31st, June 2nd, June 5th-6th, and June 8th-9th. Mandatory minicamp will be June 13th-15th.
The NFL draft is now 24 days away and the mock drafts are coming fast. Most mocks have the 49ers selecting a defensive player at #2 if they are unable to trade down. The ideal situation would be to trade down and get another 1st or 2nd round pick in the process. But if the 49ers are forced to choose with the #2 pick, most drafts have them taking Soloman Thomas, DE out of Stanford. I think that Mike Williams, the WR from Clemson, would be an intriguing pick and could be a playmaker for many years to come.
