First impressions, notes and quotes from first day of 49ers rookie minicamp

Living in San Francisco is great for covering games at AT&T Park – not quite as optimal when you’re heading to Santa Clara and someone’s giant work vehicle is stalled out on

Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree – just a couple of buddies looking for lucrative contract extensions

I apologize in advance for bringing this up yet again … Many have looked at Colin Kaepernick’s incomplete/intercepted passes to the corner of the end zone in Super Bowl 47 and

Aldon Smith pleads no contest to all charges, could face jail time (yeah, right)

San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith, who has racked up four of the team’s ridiculous NINE arrests since 2012, pleaded no contest to all charges today. That’s no contest to

Five potential reasons Shayne Skov signed with the 49ers

At first glance it seems like Shayne Skov chose the bumpiest path to an NFL roster. The former Stanford linebacker may have gone undrafted after posting lackluster workout times (a calf injury

Bruce Ellington on Colin Kaepernick’s “cannon,” Marcus Lattimore’s progress and Nerf basketball

It took until the fourth round for the 49ers to draft a wide receiver, and they got a basketball player in the process. Bruce Ellington isn’t just one of the

49ers may have drafted their own Honey Badger

I was perusing the latest update on Pro Football Focus’ list of the top 100 players in the NFL, when something reminded me of a certain player the San Francisco

BASGcast (Ep. 93): David Fucillo of Niners Nation recaps 49ers draft

David Fucillo of SB Nation’s Niners Nation joins Bay Area Duck Guy and Bay Area Sports Guy recapping San Francisco’s draft. Topics include: Grading the 49ers draft. How good is

A look at why Shayne Skov went undrafted and how the NFL views Stanford

I’m going to ask the following question, even if it means putting myself at risk of sounding both lazy and kind of racist at the same time. What does third round pick

49ers keep team physicians busy with seventh round picks, sign UDFA Shayne Skov

The 2014 NFL Draft is over! And, thankfully, Michael Sam didn’t go undrafted. Sam is now a Ram, as St. Louis took him with the 249th overall pick (there were a

49ers fifth-rounder Aaron Lynch is fine physically, but mental health is a concern

Aaron Lynch started out as a highly recruited defensive end who looked dominant at times during his freshman year at Notre Dame. He ended up transferring to South Florida after that

49ers grab three corners: a safety, another redshirt guy and a Mustang

Jimmie Ward is probably going to play a lot of nickel corner for the San Francisco 49ers, so technically they addressed their biggest weakness. But what about drafting a “real”

May 10, 20140

Hey, 49ers finally drafted a WR … Bruce Ellington in fourth round

Against all odds, the 49ers didn’t take a guard, punter or long snapper in the fourth round. Instead they did what everyone thought they would two or three rounds earlier, as

With third round picks No. 2 & 3, 49ers add *single* ILB Chris Borland & another redshirt guy

I’m kind of running out of gas on a Friday evening, so I’m going to combine the 49ers’ last two third round picks into one post. Any complaints? Didn’t think

49ers draft Marcus Martin, who should compete with Daniel Kilgore for starting center job

The NFL Draft isn’t just about optimism and speculation, there’s also a slightly cruel element that reminds us how disposable these athletes are to the organizations that spend every day

49ers draft Carlos Hyde (Ohio State) in second round, don’t seem all that confident in current RBs

First of all, Trent Baalke did an outstanding job confusing the hell out of everyone. I still haven’t even decided if I’m going to go through all the trades and

Why the San Francisco 49ers traded for WR Stevie Johnson and what it means

I advised the 49ers to sign him in 2012. Two years later, he’s on his way back to the Bay. Today the San Francisco 49ers added a receiver who went

San Francisco 49ers take safety Jimmie Ward (N. Illinois) with 30th pick

Your mock drafts are all wrong. My predictions, too. The San Francisco 49ers stayed at No. 30 and took Jimmie Ward, a strong safety out of Northern Illinois. That marks

The 49ers’ first round pick will be …

Trent Baalke threw a wicked 12-to-6 curveball with the A.J. Jenkins pick in 2012. As a result, we spent weeks trying to crack the code in hopes of deciphering how (and

Seattle radio station will refer to Seahawks’ rivals as “Santa Clara 49ers”

Pretty clever stuff coming out of Seattle.  In addition to Sports Radio KJR’s excessive usage of commas and apostrophes, we’re going to have to question a couple things. 1. No stadium
