Among minority open beginning work on the 49ers deepness graph is the Sam linebacker area left uninhabited by Azeez Al-Shaair, that authorized with the Titans in cost-free firm.
That task is vast open with every pound on the lineup possibly in the mix, yet the initial possibilities there mosted likely to experienced Oren Burks according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner.
It’s a light shock that Burks obtained those initial reps. He authorized with San Francisco last offseason as an essential unique groups factor. That was mostly his function in Environment-friendly Bay after the Packers chose him in the 3rd round of the 2018 draft.
San Francisco re-signed pound Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles that has even more experience having fun with the 49ers’ protection. They additionally included 2 Pounds in the draft– TCU’s Dee Winters in Round 6, and also Purdue’s Jalen Graham in Round 7.
Still, Burks was the initial pound to run along with Fred Detector and also Dre Greenlaw at the initial training school technique Wednesday.
In 5 periods Burks has actually begun 10 video games on protection. In 2014 he played 157 protective breaks for San Francisco. His career-high for protective breaks in period was 205, which he collected in 2021– his last year with the Packers.
While his jobs as a linebacker with Environment-friendly Bay weren’t specifically great, he had not been negative with the 49ers in 2014 in his minimal example and also gained career-best qualities throughout the board from Pro Football Emphasis, consisting of a solid 78.9 general quality.
The Sam pound’s having fun time would certainly be restricted and also would certainly most usually can be found in run circumstances. That might be a function Burks inevitably prospers in, and also the group was plainly satisfied with what they saw from him last period.
It’s still very early in camp though and also pads have not begin yet. Burks obtained the initial beginning representatives, yet do not be shocked if a few of the various other Pounds on the lineup obtain their possibilities for those breaks too.
