Was Brock Purdy’s emergence predictable? S2 Cognition test has pointed to NFL success (paywall)

“According to Ally, the 49ers quarterback did particularly well in three areas. One of them was spatial awareness, which translates in several aspects of the game, including how well a quarterback can assess a defense before the snap...Another area in which Purdy excelled was distraction control. “Those are the guys — and Drew Brees was one of those — who, the pocket, the world could be collapsing around them and they can just maintain that steely focus on what they’re supposed to be doing,” Ally said....Finally, Purdy was especially impressive when it came to depth perception speed....“He was in some pretty elite company,” Ally said. “I mean, he was in the high 90s on that.”...As for the 49ers’ other young quarterback, Trey Lance?..Ally couldn’t reveal the exact number but said Lance “scored well.”..“He’s not in the Brock Purdy range but he didn’t score poorly,” he said.”

It sounds like 49ers QB Trey Lance has started throwing

“It sounds like Lance has started throwing again in the Bay Area. The quarterback took to social media to ask for “a few college receivers” for (presumably) a Bay Area throwing session, starting on Friday.”

Report: Rams ‘very likely’ to trade Ramsey in coming weeks

“Los Angeles looks to be finding ways to clear cap space ahead of the new league year, and though Ramsey is a six-time Pro Bowler and three-time First Team All-Pro who helped the Rams win Super Bowl LVI in 2022, he could be the next star defender after Wagner to depart.”

Rich Eisen: 49ers’ Super Bowl window “open for a nice long time”

“It does appear that they’re set in so many positions,” Rich Eisen told 95.7 The Game’s Ray Ratto and Allen Stiles on Thursday. “Lynch is terrific at the job. I think he and Shanahan work really well together. [49ers CEO] Jed York is thrilled with them. And if there’s any coach-GM combination that could survive trading multiple first-round picks to move up to take a quarterback who hardly plays a game, for them, it’s these two, as they’ve made NFC Championship Games, plural, in three of the last four years.”
