The San Francisco 49ers kicked off a three-day rookie minicamp today. While not too much should be taken from Trey Lance’s first practice of the offseason, it was good to finally
see the rookie quarterback throwing while donning a gold helmet.

Today’s practice was the only one of this minicamp to which the media will have access. The remaining two sessions over the next two days are closed to reporters. While reporters probably had to use binoculars to see the new 49ers quarterback due to COVID protocols, the rookie did leave some positive impressions.

“Lance was the only quarterback in Friday’s session,” reported Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group, “and he completed his first 12 passes in 7-on-7 action, most of which came on short throws, but he did nail a 15-yard dart over the middle in early action.

Added Inman: “Lance wasn’t glaringly rusty as quarterback coach Rich Scangarello talked him through early drills.”

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle humorously took his evaluation a step further.

Here are some other first impressions from the media, following the 49ers’ first practice — albeit not featuring the entire team — of the year.
