49er News: Trey Lance, Drake Jackson impress at minicamp

The 49ers’ Juszczyk impressed with everything he’s seen of Lance

“I feel like I saw an improvement on the field in terms of his performance,” said Juszczyk. “We’ve seen a lot of great plays out there. And as a manager, I have the feeling that he has risen.”

Albert Breer expects trade talks with Jimmy Garoppolo to resume soon

“We want to take a look at Sam Darnold on offense from Ben McAdoo. We want to take a look at Matt Corral, how he’s coping after a simplified college offense, and then we’ll reevaluate it after we’re done with the offseason program,” Breer said, describing the Panthers’ mindset. “That’s why I’m saying that in about a week and a half, Carolina, Seattle, these teams will probably have a better overall idea of ​​where they stand as a quarterback. And then I think those talks will resume … whether it’s San Francisco and Carolina, Cleveland and Carolina, Seattle and San Francisco — whatever it is … I think some of those talks will resume late next week.”

“Ebukam and Jackson could compete for snaps this season. Ebukam says Jackson is already giving him strong competition, which should make both players better in the long run.

“I saw him doing all the exercises and I was just like, ‘Man, he’s athletic, he’s tall,'” Ebukam said. “He has young legs so he can last all day. When I see him doing that, I just think, oh yeah, I have someone who can push me. So he’s pushing me. He will also push others.”

Cohn: The Good and Not So Good from day 2 of minicamp

“[Trey Lance] completed 10 of 15 passing attempts while playing without Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, Jauan Jennings, Elijah Mitchell, Trent Williams, Daniel Brunskill and Mike McGlinchey. He also threw two long touchdown passes – one down the left touchline to Ray Ray McCloud, who defeated Ambry Thomas (more on him in a minute). The pass wobbled, but it was accurate and the receiver caught it, so who cares? Jimmy Garoppolo would never have attempted this throw, let alone completed it. The second deep touchdown pass was a perfect spiral into midfield to Jordan Matthews, who hit a post. This was another pass Garoppolo would not have made in a million years. But the interception was certainly one Garoppolo would have thrown. In that game, Lance was under pressure, forcing a pass down the middle to KeeSean Johnson, and safety Leon O’Neal Jr. simply hit the receiver for the catch point. Had Deebo Samuel or Brandon Aiyuk been the target the pass might have been completed but they didn’t practice. In four practice sessions in front of the media this offseason, Lance has completed 50 of 67 passes (74.6 percent) and thrown 6 touchdown passes and 2 picks. He is ready. The 49ers no longer need Garoppolo. They should cut him before training camp.”
