The San Francisco 49ers concluded their on field portion of their mandatory minicamp before the summer break with the defense getting another win. The offense cleaned up the details, eliminating the pre snap penalties that plagued them the day before, but the defense still won the day. Here are the top plays of practice:
Jerry Attaochu gets past the line
During 11-on-11s Attaouchu got past Mike Persons to Jimmy Garoppolo for a what would have been a sack. Garoppolo scrambled and ended up throwing the ball into the turf towards Matt Breida’s direction.
Garoppolo to Jerick McKinnon
There is some debate in the writer‘s work room if this play would have been a touchdown. It was the third play of practice and it was called dead before McKinnon crossed the goal line. McKinnon was covered by Reuben Foster in the middle of the field for a large gain but I guess we will never know if he would have taken it all the way.
C.J. Beathard to Cole Wick
This was also in the move the ball type drills. Beathard rolled out and threw deep to Wick for a 27 yard gain while he was covered by Corey Griffin.
Nick Mullens to Richie James Jr.
Mullens rolled out and threw deep down the right side to James who was being covered by Griffin and C.J. Goodwin. It was good for a 25 yard gain.
DeForest Buckner puts on the pressure
Buckner got pressure on Jimmy Garoppolo two plays in a row during red zone drills. He got past Mike Persons to put pressure on Garoppolo in the first play, forcing an incomplete pass intended for McKinnon. The next play would have been a sack as Buckner slowed up to not hit Garoppolo as he threw it away, out of bounds, to the right side.
Garoppolo to Aldrick Robinson
At one point in the move the ball type drills Garoppolo threw three consecutive passes to Robinson. The first pass was the best, deep down the left sideline for a large gain while Robinson was being covered by Jaquiski Tartt. The next was a short pass while Adrian Colbert was in coverage and the third was an incomplete pass at the goal line with Tyvis Powell in coverage.
Ahkello Witherspoon breaks up a touchdown
Garoppolo attempted a touchdown pass to Robinson in the end zone but it was broken up by Witherspoon who jumped in front of Robinson, got both hands on the ball and nearly intercepted the pass.
Korey Toomer goes back to back
Mullens was attempting to throw to the end zone and was nearly intercepted by Toomer who saw where the play was going and stepped in the path of the ball. On the very next play, Mullens attempted a pass to Wick at the goal line, Toomer tipped the ball to Wick, who returned the favor and tipped it again, back towards Toomer and Mark Nzeocha but non were able to actually hold onto the ball.
This marked the 49ers final practice until the team reconvenes at the end of July for training camp.
