Photos from 49ers rookie minicamp

We didn’t get to watch the players take part in anything beyond stretching and position-specific warmup drills before the actual “practice” took place. So, photos of the drills is what you’re getting.

I didn’t get any photos of dudes stretching either, and here’s another thing I unfortunately didn’t capture on “film”: Trent Baalke getting touchy-feely with Matt Barrows, who had a tough time pulling away from the 49ers general manager when he grabbed the Sacramento Bee beat writer by the trapezoid and didn’t look like he wanted to let go.

Otherwise, Jimmy Ward and a few others were either watching or not on the field. One player who appears to be “working through something” very minor is Marcus Lattimore, the subject of this Vine posted by the 49ers.

That was on the other side of the field, so I didn’t even notice Lattimore was out there. To show you how far away the running backs were, here’s the photo I got of second round pick Carlos Hyde.

As for the rest, I captured a few draft picks, a few higher-profile camp invites, and — of course — Jim Harbaugh.

Undrafted rookie quarterback Kory Faulkner (we covered some of his interesting practice habits earlier in the day here, along with several other notes and quotes from pre-practice interviews):

Here’s third-rounder Marcus Martin, looking like the guard/center he is.

Want to see linebackers catch passes? You’re in luck!

Third-rounder Chris Borland:

Fifth-rounder Aaron Lynch (who definitely has the length and arm tattoos of an NFL pass rusher):

Undrafted free agent Shayne Skov:

If you want to see actual receivers catching passes, alright. Here you go.

Fourth-rounder Bruce Ellington (who everyone seems to love):

And Jerry Rice (Jr.) himself:

To finish things off, let’s head into the weekend with a little Harbaugh.

Here he is, watching fourth round cornerback Dontae Johnson backpedal:

And you knew he’d get a few throws in, seeing as Faulkner is the only true quarterback at this minicamp.

As for a report on what happened, that’s pretty much it. After Harbaugh unleashed this deep pass, we were all kicked off the field so the players and coaches could get down to business in private. All the players looked really good during stretching and warmups, though. Pivotal day for the franchise.


Hm.  Was the Baalke-Barrows thing a man-crush kinda grab, or a "put him in a headlock next" kinda thing?
