Alex Smith will be the starter.

Some news on who's looking good and who's not

Quote:
STOCK UP

Ahmad Brooks. Harbaugh singled him out first after practice, saying he’s had a “heck of a camp.” Patrick Willis called him an extremely talented athlete who’s been making plays all camp, and that’s the truth.

Donte Whitner. Harbaugh also said he’s been encouraged by Whitner’s play. Whitner seems to have the strong safety position locked up. He makes plays both in coverage and at the line of scrimmage in practice. He makes diving pass break ups every day, and he’s been blitzing effectively as well. Today he intercepted Josh McCown and returned the ball for a touchdown, evading Coach Harbaugh near the end zone, who ran at Whitner like he wanted to tackle him.

NaVorro Bowman. Patrick Willis said playing with the second-year middle linebacker is “a blessing.” Bowman seems to make at least two big plays per practice, and today was no different. He intercepted McLeod Bethel-Thompson on a pass over the middle, and he had a sack later in practice.

Konrad Reuland. The favorite for the third tight end job, Harbaugh heaped praise on the former Stanford Cardinal. Here’s what he said: “He’s having a great camp. I coached him college, and I’ve always had great respect for Konrad’s game. He’s elevated it here and I’m really pleased to see that. Some of the guys have been joking with him and calling him Novacek in camp because he’s really caught about every ball that’s been thrown at him. He’s grinding hard in the blocking. Konrad’s probably put on about ten pounds and he’s gotten a little stronger. He’s giving himself a great chance to be in the mix to make the team.”

Tramaine Brock. The favorite for the nickel corner job, way ahead of Tarell Brown and just slightly ahead of the rookie Chris Culliver. Brock practiced with the first team all week and looked good. When asked about Brock, Willis said, “Wow, he’s having a heck of a camp.”

STOCK DOWN

Tarell Brown. He started today across from Brock, but he struggled. The scout offense seemed to be picking on him, throwing his way over and over. He got beat at least four times by wide receivers who will not make the final cut of this team. On one play he got beat deep on a 60-yard pass from Jeremiah Masoli to Tyler Beiler.

Parys Haralson. He doesn’t rush the passer well, so he seems like a situational player at best this year. It’s a matter of time before the first round pick Aldon Smith takes his job as the starting right outside linebacker. Smith could take it from him as early as week one of the regular season.

Madieu Williams. He played next to C.J. Spillman today on the second-team defense, and he got beat a few times by Konrad Reuland on throws from Josh McCown. Williams figures to be the third-string free safety when Reggie Smith returns from his meniscus injury, which surely wasn’t what Williams thought he was signing up for when he signed with the Niners.

Scott McKillop. Played exclusively with the scout team defense today. Larry Grant passed him right away on the depth chart at middle linebacker. There was a false report that McKillop had been released last week, but it’s looking more and more likely that he will be cut before the regular season begins.

Taylor Mays. He’s been a scout-team-only player all week. Mays seems forlorn on the practice field, playing with a half-hearted effort and loitering by himself on the sideline. The 49ers want to trade him, but they may have to flat out cut him.

- Nice to hear Brooks is having a great camp. I knew there was potential there. We've all seen flashes of it. Now it just has to translate to the regular season. I hope and Smith are menaces off the edge.

- I'm surprised that Brown is struggling so much as I had high hopes for him, but that is the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. I'm satisfied with Brock and Culliver looking nice though. Especially Brock who was undrafted. It will be interesting to see how Shawntae Spencer's role plays in all of this.

- Hopefully Whitner brings a smashmouth presence to the strong safety position. We really haven't had a high impact strong safety since Tony Parrish.

What do u guys make of Harbaugh's comments about Chilo? It almost sounds like he's trying to boost his confidence..if he's doing so well, why is Snyder taking his starting snaps in practice?

I really think that our D will be solid, with our LBs playing better as a unit, getting to the QB more, the D-Line with ICE getting a push and Ray Mac taking the nest step and the secondary showing improvement behind leadership from Whitner. The "analysts" in the East Coast-biased National sports media will rate the Niners D down because they lost 'names' like Clements, Lawson, Spikes and Franklin but I believe they will be in for a surprise with Brooks stepping up and starting, Bowman breaking out, Aldon Smith destroying OTs, and the young corners competing and showing promise.

The problem is that the D stands to be on the field a lot, possible backed up into their zone from the mistakes the O will make. The defense definitely looks like they will be the strong part of the team again.

At least we finally have two guys that really look like they can rush the passer. Two starters I should say. And they showed some promise against New Orleans.

I've also heard that Cory Nelms has had a solid TC. I believe Matt Barrows said a few days ago that Nelms is having a similar TC to which Brock had in 2010. He bounced on and off the 53 and PS his rookie year. Sounds like a good candidate for the PS, or maybe a surprise roster addition at Browns expense, as Brock was a surprise last year too

Agreed, seems that way to me too. Harbaugh also said Staley was having a solid camp and all you heard about early on was him getting abused by Aldon Smith. The best OL performances are the one you don't hear about in TC- and so far we haven't heard about Iupati and Davis.

Brooks was always my favorite out of the group that we had these past few years. He and Aldon should make a very good tandem.

I like the Konrad Reuland bit. I hope he finds a spot on our squad. Looking like Harbaugh's formula for the draft and post draft seems to be working.

Apparently why the Saints blitzed so much:

Quote:
For those of you interested: The Saints radio guy, Jim Henderson, was on a local radio show yesterday previewing the Texans v Saints matchup this weekend. At the 1:30 mark of the interview Henderson says the reason the Saints blitzed so much and pounded the 9er QB’s was because Sean Payton expected a call from Harbaugh during the week of the game so they could reach a gentlemen’s agreement on how the game would be played (pretty common in NFL circles). After Harbaugh blew off the call, Payton told Gregg Williams to “turn the dogs loose.”

He wasn't signed to compete with Smith, and he wasn't signed to be his backup either. He was signed to be a #3 with starting experience.

Here's a few quick thoughts from Harbaugh about McCown...

Quote:
On what he liked about McCown:
“We thought he was a good fit and watched him when he came out, followed his career and worked out very well. So, I thought it would be a good fit.”

On whether McCown still has the ability to make plays with his feet:
“I believe he does. He’s in very good shape and still 32 years old, still has his legs.”

On what he looks for in a third quarterback:
“Somebody that prepares themselves very well mentally, they don’t get near the amount of reps that the first and second team quarterback gets, but that’s why it’s good. It’s positive that he’s an experienced guy, he’s had game action.”

Im miffed about the whole Mays thing. The Bears made us a offer(supposedly a 7th round pick) and we turned it down? I mean what does Baalke realistically expect to get for a player your openingly shopping only a year after drafting him? Teams know that your eventually going to cut him anyway so Im not understanding the logic. What can we expect to get in return for a 2nd round pick who has done absolutely squat as a player? And now to hear that he seems to be disinterested in practice and giving less effort, I think its just better for both parties to just end it. Let the kid have a chance to catch on somewhere else where he's actually wanted. Gotta be tough for Mays to know the team has basically given up on him, yet your still here, going through the motions. Tough situation to deal with.

I wouldnt be interested in doing anything either if I was Mays. Baalke made a mistake by even trying to trade him to begin with. Personally, he's only in his second season and I would keep him as a backup to Whitner. Move Reggie to FS and have him compete with Goldson for the starting spot with the loser being the backup.

I would feel better about Mays if he didn't try to spear his head into everyones chest.

Well if he's looking terrible to the point where the team feels like he warrants a trade, then they should try to trade him.

Teams know that your eventually going to cut him anyway so Im not understanding the logic. What can we expect to get in return for a 2nd round pick who has done absolutely squat as a player? And now to hear that he seems to be disinterested in practice and giving less effort, I think its just better for both parties to just end it. Let the kid have a chance to catch on somewhere else where he's actually wanted. Gotta be tough for Mays to know the team has basically given up on him, yet your still here, going through the motions. Tough situation to deal with.
I agree. This reminds me of the Trent Green situation a few years back when the negotiations with Kansas City and Miami kept dragging on and on...and he was still in camp taking reps because there was nothing else to do. I'd feel the same way if I was in Mays position. If the team is actively shopping you and you know about it then what is the point of putting in the effort? It's probably difficult to put in a good amount of work when the team you're working for doesn't want your services. I would have just taken the 7th round pick. Not sure what Baalke is looking for.

Why take a 7th rounder when possibly we could get a 4,5 or maybe a 3rd instead.I think his skill set are at least worth one of those IMO.

Because no one is going to offer more than that. They already sent a mass email out.

Yeah, they'd be lucky to get a 6th for Mays at this point. Teams who are interested in him will wait until he's released and then sign him for less money than his 2nd Round pick contract. If he was worth more and someone thought he could start for them, he would have been moved already.

What a complete waste of recent high draft picks spent on guys not contributing to the success of the team in Balmer in the first, Mays in the second, and Glen Coffee in the 3rd. Bleh.

Which is why its smarter to just keep Mays instead. He was a high second round draft pick and is only in his second season and in case we get hit with an injury bug, he provides insurance to the strong safety spot and probably could backup at LB too if needed. I think that he's worth more to us than a 7th round draft pick would be. Now, if a team wanted to give me a third rounder for him, I would probably take it but anything lower, no damn way because he's worth more than that by age alone. Imagine if he was traded to a team that moves him to LB and he excels, we'll look like morons for trading away a player who's only in his second season.
