The 49ers mandatory three-day minicamp begins today, signaling the start of the team’s final on-field work prior to training camp.
Similar to Organized Team Activities, the minicamp will involve the same non-contact principles as the previous stages of the offseason program. Team and 7-on-7 periods are permitted, one-on-one pass-rushing battles, however, will have to wait until training camp.
49ers.com will have extended minicamp coverage throughout the week, but before camp begins, let’s take a look at the top team-related headlines.

With the 190th overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, the 49ers picked a TCU safety, who has the potential to be an elite special teams player.
Colin Jones, the team’s sixth-round selection, runs fast and has great tackling instincts. Both skills, make him a great addition to Brad Seely’s special teams units.
