Golden Nuggets: Less than 20 days until vets report to training camp

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Thursday, July 6th, 2023

QB Sam Darnold: Learning Niners’ offense ‘a work in progress’

“It’s been a work in progress,” Darnold said. “I thought I got better throughout (mini) camp and just got more comfortable with the system, so I still got to study and go through the process of continuing to learn the system. But I’m excited for it, and it’s been really fun so far.”

Don’t expect 49ers to get involved in supplemental draft

“While San Francisco may be intrigued with one of Wideman or Wright, they’d need to give up a 2024 pick that corresponds with where they selected them in the supplemental draft.

Wideman was a dual-sport athlete at Jackson State. He began his career at Tennessee before transferring. In three college seasons he caught 38 balls for 613 yards and 13 touchdowns. His best year was in 2021 when he hauled in 34 receptions for 540 yards and 12 TDs.

He also played basketball for the Tigers. The 6-5, 190-pound guard averaged 5.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game. His size and athleticism could intrigue NFL teams.

Wright had a more traditional college career. The. 6-3, 195-pound receive played in 27 games across three seasons for the Boilermakers. He was academically ineligible for the 2022 season, but in the three years prior he posted 1,325 yards and 10 touchdowns on 99 catches. His best year was in 2021 when he had 57 receptions for 732 yards and seven TDs.”

1 veteran on roster bubble at each position group for 49ers

“Kinlaw could quickly come off the roster bubble if he’s healthy. He’s immensely talented and a full training camp would put him in position to breakout in the regular season. Staying on the field has been a problem for him throughout his three-year career though. If he has to start taking extended time off during camp where the team isn’t confident he’s ready to play to start the regular season, they may cut ties with their first-round pick from 2020 and go with a different veteran instead.”

Ranking the best draft picks for the 49ers in the Kyle Shanahan era

“Selected with No. 70 in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Warner was one of the initial building blocks for Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers, manning the defense at the middle linebacker spot.”
