Top 5 things to monitor as 49ers start organized team activities
“Let the games begin. Or, actually, the practices, and definitely the quarterback competition between Trey Lance and Sam Darnold.
Organized team activities, better known as the 49ers’ most complete practices of the offseason, begin Monday.
They remain part of the voluntary offseason program, so some All-Pros likely will skip them. Defensive end Nick Bosa has stayed back, thus far, to work out like every offseason in his native Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, doing so now as the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year.”
49ers on former South Alabama cornerback: ‘He’s a man already’
“The word the San Francisco scouts used for Luter the most seemed to be “strong.”..“He’s very strong,” said Tariq Ahmad, the 49ers’ director of college scouting. “He was very sticky at the Senior Bowl. He fit in very well down there against some of the top competition.”...Luter said he tries to use his strength to make receivers uncomfortable....“Being close up and in press, it allows me to put my hands on early,” Luter said. “It allows me to be able to rough those receivers up and get them into their routes sooner than they would want to. That’s something that I’ve done since I was little. I’ve been doing that coverage, especially press, my whole football career.”
“I think Purdy would be for me, that would be the best option for the San Francisco 49ers because what better way to build a team than with a quarterback who has three years left on a seventh-round draft choice contract? That is the mother lode,” Eisen continued.”
“In the draft, it’s difficult to argue that anything the 49ers did was the result of good process. They reached relative to the PFF and consensus big boards at most picks and drafted a kicker in the third round.”
