53-man roster projection following first preseason game

53-man roster projection following first preseason game

The 49ers are one game into the preseason. Who is where in the race for roster spots? The San Francisco 49ers have one preseason game in their rear view mirror, and we have over two weeks worth of information at this point in the competition for starting jobs and roster spots. Some of our presumptions heading into training camp have been turned on their ear, while others are about what we expected. I put together a 53-man roster projection when training camp opened, and it has not gotten any easier with two weeks of practice and a game under the 49ers belts. Listing Reuben Foster and Victor...

Reuben Foster was filthy in coverage of Tavon Austin

Reuben Foster was filthy in coverage of Tavon Austin

It was an ugly first half, but this play was something to behold. The San Francisco 49ers had a rough first half of football against the Dallas Cowboys, but there were some highlights. My favorite might be this play involving Reuben Foster. Look at Reuben Foster work off PA and pick up Tavon Austin on the crossings route. #NorrisNotes pic.twitter.com/j1rFSxFE2Q— Josh Norris (@JoshNorris) August 10, 2018 Wide receiver Tavon Austin was split to the right of the line of scrimmage and cut across the field fairly open. However, Foster dropped into coverage and quickly caught up with...

You can get good odds on 49ers DPOY candidates

You can get good odds on 49ers DPOY candidates

DeForest Buckner and Reuben Foster are both intriguing longshots. The San Francisco 49ers are counting on Jimmy Garoppolo to help them take a step forward, but if this team is going to contend for the playoffs, the defense needs to take a big step forward of its own. The biggest defensive addition this year is cornerback Richard Sherman, but the team has all sorts of young talent to watch. And if you think we’ll see some breakout years this fall, there is some value to be had in the betting market. Bovada released their odds for 2018 Defensive Player of the Year, and three 49ers players...

Winners and Losers from 49ers practice, August 6

Winners and Losers from 49ers practice, August 6

Let’s see who stood out and who didn’t during Sunday’s practice. Fresh off of having a solid practice on Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers re-grouped and look to be laser-focused in preparing for the Dallas Cowboys on Monday. With only two days remaining for the 49ers’ first preseason game, the fine tuning has begun towards Thursday night’s showdown. Winners DL DeForest Buckner Although LB Reuben Foster receives the lion’s share of the media attention, the 49ers’ most productive defender has always been DL DeForest Buckner. The third-year lineman has been a one-man wrecking...

Robert Saleh on D.J. Reed, Sheldon Day, Kyle Shanahan’s use of tight ends

The 49ers defensive coordinator met with the media on Monday. He had plenty to discuss as the team prepares for Thursday’s preseason opener. We have a full transcript. You had LB Malcolm Smith and LB Reuben Foster going up against the threes today? Was that just for them to get different looks? “Just getting reps. You may end up with different rotations here and there. It’s just to give them different looks.” How is DB Tyvis Powell coming along as a left cornerback? “He’s doing a nice job. Much improved from a year ago. He’s in tremendous shape. He’s competing his butt off...

DeMeco Ryans training Reuben Foster on that new tackling technique

Here’s some nice video of Foster working on that ground approach Reuben Foster is a game changer for the San Francisco 49ers on defense—when he’s on the field. When he is off it, things can take a turn for the worst. In 2017 he injured himself in Week 1 to keep himself out for a couple of weeks with an ankle sprain and when returning it seemed like he was paying a visit to the medical tent every other play. The 49ers have indicated they are working on him with his form so he can stay healthy and on the field, and linebackers coach DeMeco Ryans has been doing what he can. The...

Saleh talks rookie DBs, Reuben Foster technique, Richard Sherman return

The 49ers defensive coordinator met with the media following Sunday’s padded practice. We’ve got a full transcript, and you can watch video here. CB Richard Sherman was going every three plays today. Is that part of the progress, the game plan for him coming back from that injury? “Yeah, get him back to speed. He missed all of OTAs and had been working with the trainers. Just trying to get his football legs back. He doesn’t have anything to prove. He just has to get back in shape and get his legs back.” Where do you see him in this process? How close is he to the Richard Sherman...

Foster meets with media for first time since legal matters put to rest

Foster explains how the process was a learning experience and how important the support of his “brotherhood” has been throughout the process The offseason was a challenge for Reuben Foster and not he way it should have been. He would have much rather have been practicing with his teammates, working out at the 49ers facility, but he will have to chalk this up as a learning experience. It was a big learning experience. I learned from every mistake, everything that’s been said, all my flaws, learned from a lot of things, I just grew from it. It also made him realize how important...

The 49ers head coach met with the media to close out the first day of padded practice. We’ve got a full transcript, and you can watch video here. How did today go? How do you rate today versus yesterday? “I thought it was our best day yet just all around. All three phases, I thought were solid. Still got a lot of improvement to do, but first day of pads I think everyone came out focused. It was a physical practice, but at the same time, I thought we took care of each other, also. There weren’t too many guys on the ground and I was pleased.” I know you’re looking in a lot of...

49ers’ Foster said he knows more problems could end career: ‘It’s like do or die’

After a tumultuous offseason that included two arrests and resulted in a two-game NFL suspension, 49ers inside linebacker Reuben Foster addressed the media Saturday for the first time since December and said he understood his spot on the team could be in jeopardy if he has more legal problems. General manager John Lynch has said it’s been conveyed to Foster “that his place on this team is one that must continue to be earned.” “That was the message that came through. And I respect it,” said Foster, who added: “Everything I do now, (I have to) to...

Reuben Foster mindful of his new technique/form

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about Reuben’s work on proper form to prevent injury. It sounds like it’s a work in progress. The first 49ers practice in pads is in the books and we saw a lot of good things now that the pads are on. Jimmy Garoppolo had some nice dimes and Joe Williams broke out a nice run towards the end of practice. Reuben Foster from reports seemed to have been flying all over the field laying the wood. He struggled a bit in 11-on-11 drills, but was solid in 1-on-1s. It sounds like the 49ers linebacker hasn’t missed a step from the offseason. Just one...

What we learned at the first day of 49ers training camp

It was an uneventful start to training camp which is just fine The San Francisco 49ers opened up their first practice of training camp with a fairly normal session. The structure was very similar to what has been seen during OTAs and minicamp, and it will probably won’t be drastically different as the days progress. Here’s what we learned on day one of training camp. The Middle Brock Coyle and Reuben Foster will be holding down the middle of the field while Malcolm Smith recovers from a non football injury that the from office says is nothing to worry about. For now Coyle will be the...
