Morning Tailgate: Rookie Camp Recap

Posted by Taylor Price on May 13, 2013 – 11:02 AM

San Francisco’s rookies had a successful introduction into the “Forty Niner Way” over the weekend.

Three days of a rookie minicamp at 49ers headquarters saw the 2013 class learn the basics of San Francisco’s offensive, defensive and special team systems. It also saw the newcomers get to know each other and their coaching staff in perfect climate conditions.

The going will only get tougher for the rookies, like Sergio Garcia on the 17th tee box of Sawgrass, tough.

That’s because the rookies join forces with their veteran teammates this week for the third installment of “Football School.” The helmet-free fundamental work will take place this week to prepare the entire squad for upcoming Organized Team Activities.

49ers.com will check in with the rookie class after they get to work with the veterans, but for now, let’s look back at the opening impressions from rookie minicamp in today’s Morning Tailgate.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reviewed the play of unheralded cornerbacks at 49ers rookie cmap.

Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle shared notes on the passing accuracy at rookie cmap.

Daniel Brown of the San Jose Mercury News covered Eric Reid’s family history with football.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee discussed why Lawrence Okoye is in a good situation with the 49ers.

Barrows also checked in with offensive tackle Kenny Wiggins.

49ers.com offered a comprehensive look at rookie camp.



Bay Area support from the 49ers QB.

    Sounds like there’s some pretty good talent out there…especially pumped about the CB’s. Good to see/hear Kap supporting our Warriors…just like the Niners, there’s NO QUIT in that team! Go Warriors!! Go Niners!!

    ooo this just in cheifs hire chris ault as a consoltant kaeps former coach and creator of the “pistol” offense


    Alex Smith’s first words to Ault
    “Thanks a lot for Kaepernick”

    but kidding aside kinda hoped we would attract his interest more,than kc

    like i said im sorry but you seemed an “obviuos” choice since when i look back at who says stop posting videos um i see you telling me to stop posting videos, so let me ask you why does it bother you when someone posts a video ? (this is the internet btw )

  22. By tanglung on May 13, 2013 | Reply

    I just can’t see 49erdefense2012 having another screen name. He’s the most logical 49ERS FAN on this site. I don’t think he needs to hide behind another name. Maybe it’s a seachicken or chief’s fan. Who know’s and who cares.
