The San Francisco 49ers opened up OTA practice for the second time in as many weeks, and while the team is still only wearing shorts and jerseys, we did get to see a few flashes of what’s to come. There were less 11-on-11 drills than last week’s practice and more “teaching sessions” but the structure remained pretty similar.
Jimmy Garoppolo to Kendrick Bourne
The first session of 11-on-11s included Garoppolo throwing deep to the right sideline to Boune who was being covered by Jimmie Ward. While Bourne was pretty closely covered, he was able to hold onto the ball for a completion.
Nick Mullens to Victor Bolden Jr.
Mullens threaded the needle with a very accurate pass that went between LB Fred Warner and S Corey Griffin right into the hands of Bolden who caught it on the run and kept going.
Sheldon Day interception of C.J. Beathard
Beathard’s pass bounced off of Bolden who was on a crossing route, right into the hands of Day whose quick reflexes allowed him to hold onto the ball.
Day swats down a pass from Beathard
Day has been flashing during OTAs and added to his resume when he jumped up at the line of scrimmage to swat down a pass from Beathard.
Ward breaks up pass from Garoppolo to Marquise Goodwin
Goodwin didn’t even look like he was running hard and got quite a bit of separation from Ward. Garoppolo went deep and the pass was short but it still looked like Goodwin was going to be able to turn around and haul it in. Ward was able to get high enough to break up the pass to prevent a huge gain by the offense.
Garoppolo to Bourne for a touchdown
During goal line drills Garoppolo threw a dart between Korey Toomer and Adrian Colbert to Bourne right at the goal line. Bourne held on for the touchdown.
Garoppolo to Garrett Celek for a touchdown
It’s important to note that there are no “sacks” of the QB in non contact play without pads. There was likely a coverage sack on this play but after a bit of scrambling, Garoppolo connected with Celek in the end zone.
