Reporter Clarifies Statement that 49ers are “Continually Underwhelmed” by Trey Lance

“This all stems from a conversation that I had with an executive who’s pretty tight with people within the 49ers organization. Then following up with a couple of members of the coaching staff. The feeling around San Francisco dating back to last summer during training camp was a little bit of disappointment over the Trey Lance that arrived in training camp versus what they saw on film at North Dakota State from an arm-strength standpoint and from a deep-ball-accuracy standpoint.”

Frank Gore has this high praise for 49ers WR Deebo Samuel

“Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the “best player all-around” in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall of Fame running back.”

Ten impactful undrafted free agent signings for the 49ers over the past five seasons

“Emmanuel Moseley (2018, Tennessee) - After an injury limited him to just three snaps as a rookie, Moseley became a key contributor on the 49ers’ defense, starting 28 of his next 39 games with 140 tackles and three interceptions.”

“This feels like 2020 all over again at the center position. In training camp, the 49ers were scrambling to find a sufficient player there with Hroniss Grasu, Daniel Brunskill, and others. That’s something the 49ers have to avoid. Center is a valuable position, and it only gets emphasized greater with the 49ers.”

“Deebo does not transcend scheme,” an exec said. “He is elite in his niche, but there is a reason he was a second-round pick. His run-after-catch is elite, but there is some stiffness, some route limitations. If you are in a lateral zone scheme, you almost treat him as a running back with jet motion and movement to get him going. Not every team is going to do that.”
