The pads are finally on! Now things are receiving serious at training camp for the 49ers.

Deebo Samuel made his 2022 debut and for the 1st time all offseason participated along with his teammates in a practice. In mandatory minicamp he stayed off aside doing conditioning. He followed that same path the initial four days of camp. He decided to a three-year extension on Sunday, then signed the offer Monday before practice. Hell be eased into work so he didnt proceed through a complete session, but his No. 19 jersey was definitely on the field.

Kinlaw sat out the initial padded practice, but theres no cause for concern. The 49ers are simply just giving their defensive tackle a routine maintenance day carrying out a day off. Keeping him healthy is key for San Franciscos defense this season. It wouldnt be surprising if maintenance days certainly are a regular thing for Kinlaw over summer and winter.

Going off script

The 49ers pass rush is forcing quarterback Trey Lance to accomplish lots of things off schedule in the offense. It has some benefits and drawbacks. The good thing is San Franciscos defense looks the section of a championship-caliber unit, and Lance could make some terrific plays by getting beyond your pocket. The bad news may be the offensive line is struggling early and the 49ers may possibly prefer to see Lance enter more of a rhythm with plays running promptly. Having the ability to escape an excellent pass rush but still create a play is among the great things about the teams change to Lance at QB though, and his penchant to make plays when things breakdown comes into play handy for him and SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA in 2022. Now the club just must ensure its offensive line gives him time and energy to make plays within the structure of the offense aswell.

Contested catch Kittle

Mostly of the knocks on George Kittle through the first section of his career was he was not a brilliant effective pass catcher in traffic. That changed some this past year, also it is apparently carrying over into training camp this season with the tight end tearing multiple receptions from defenders. Lance and Kittle have to be on a single page, but itll be considered a lot easier on the first-time starting QB if his TE will make those receptions in tight coverage. Which should also be helpful keeping in mind Kittles touchdown numbers up after he posted a career-high six TDs last season.

Brandon Aiyuk keeps shining

With Samuel from the first four practices, Aiyuk shined because the teams No. 1 receiver. That didnt change with Samuel back action. He was the recipient of a couple of big plays from Lance, and made this catch over Jimmie Ward in one-on-one drills:

Pads coming on didnt change the 49ers training camp anticipate the offensive line. They rotated tackles Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey out. Rookie fourth-round pick Spencer Burford remained at right guard while Jake Brendel worked because the first-team center. Burfords emergence is still the surprise of training camp, and he is apparently the unlikely frontrunner for the starting RG spot with Aaron Banks more likely to hold down the left guard job.

Elijah Mitchell’s role

A crowded running back room doesnt appear to be cutting into Mitchells role because the teams No. 1 running back. ESPNs Nick Wagoner observed Mitchell is earning a lions share of the first-team run early in camp. He was the 49ers best running back this past year and the team treated him therefore. This year the club may possibly prefer to see another back emerge who could effectively split time with Mitchell. For the present time it appears the program would be to roll with Mitchell because the workhorse back, though which could change quickly with Tyrion Davis-Price, Trey Sermon among others vying for carries.
