Training Camp Previews: The Cornerbacks On the Lightning Round Podcast Cheap Melvin Gordon Jersey , the guys reviewed defense and special teams. Leading up to training camp we’ll be going over position battles before we make one final prediction of the 53-man roster. Today we start with arguably the most talented position group on the roster, the cornerback position. There are locks. There will be battles. There will likely be surprises. Let’s get to the locks.LocksCasey HaywardHayward has cemented himself as one of the best corners in the league. He’s objectively top 3 anyway you slice it. Hayward is always around the ball. He has broken up 20+ passes the last 2 years. He is such a key competent on what has a chance to be one of the better units in the NFL.Jason VerrettThe biggest tease in the NFL. Verrett is undoubtedly a top talent at the position. Verrett’s issue is he can’t stay on the field to showcase his skills. Put it like this: last year Hayward got his hands on more passes tan Verrett has played in his entire career. That doesn’t seem good. As skilled as Verrett is, you have to wonder how his health impacts how many corners the team keeps.Trevor WilliamsFor a number 2 corner, who had completely stunk it up the year prior as a rookie, Williams was fantastic in 2017. You could really see him turn the corner after he went head to head with Odell Beckham Jr. and held his own. Williams is a terrific run defender and would make for a great nickel corner. If Verrett is healthy, that should be Williams role. If not he can slide by outside like last year and hopefully continue to grow as a player.Dez KingVerrett’s health directly affects King’s playing time the most in my opinion. We’ll still see King on the field. Just not as much at corner is my guess. Maybe at safety. Possibly at dime linebacker. I do think he’ll see the field in his sophomore stint but King’s role will likely be reduced.Going to have to fight for itMichael DavisDavis has the side/speed combo, but he has the upper hand due to his special teams experience. There will be 5 corners or more on the active roster. Davis should be the favorite coming into camp, but will it stay like that for long?Tony BrownThe undrafted free agent from Alabama certainly has the pedigree. National Champion multiple years. He competed for a spot on the U.S. National Track & Field team after placing 6th in the 110 Hurdles in 2016, & 11th in the 100 meter dash in 2017. He’s fast. He was known for his special teams prowess as well. Brown is the popular undrafted free agent in the secondary to make the team.Craig MagerLol. Nice try.Brandon FacysonThe former Hokie has seemingly never recovered from his injury in college. Once a freshman all-american with a bright future, Facyson is now an undrafted free agent. Still, the team has one Cheap Philip Rivers Jersey , possibly two spots open at the position. Facyson is the lanky press-man corner that the typical Gus Bradley scheme favors. Will Facyson have a great preseason and make the Chargers make a tough decision? Time will tell.Chargers-49ers final score: Los Angeles Chargers defeat the San Francisco 49ers 29-27 The Chargers won the toss and elected to receive for some reason. Things immediately got off to a terrible start as Philip Rivers looking for Keenan Allen instead found the 49ers’ Exum who returned the pick for a touchdown. The Chargers predictably started their following drive by handing the ball off to Melvin Gordon before throwing two incomplete passes and punting the ball away. Six offensive snaps equaled three yards and a touchdown that went the wrong way.C.J. Beathard and the 49ers finally took over on offense following the punt. Brandon Mebane showed up big on the first play blowing up a run play in the backfield. A badly off-target pass from Beathard and a subsequent false start put San Francisco in a deep hole on their first 3rd down of the game. Despite no pressure, Beathard still had to check down to his big tight end, George Kittle, who was stopped well short of the sticks to force a punt.The Chargers looked ready to go three-and-out on their next drive, but Lynn elected to go for it on 4th and short. Rivers was able to sneak the ball across the line to gain. From there, a nice catch and run by Gordon got the Chargers into 49ers territory. On 4th & 6, Lynn this time elected to try a long field goal and Caleb Sturgis missed from 54 yards out.Taking over at their own 44, the 49ers opened things up with a 12-yard run by Matt Breida. A chunk play to Marquise Goodwin was extended farther by a roughing the passer penalty on Philon. Finally, Beathard finished off the drive by finding Bourne for a 2-yard touchdown pass.Keenan Allen got the offense moving with a deep reception for 18 yards. Antonio Gates chipped in with a 22-yarder. And on 3rd down from the 5, Gates got as open as anyone has ever been open in the history of competitive football and Rivers hit him for the incredibly easy score.The 49ers took over just before the end of the 1st quarter and began a very long drive that eventually ended in a 21-yard field goal by Robbie Gould.With the ball back in the hands of the good guys, Rivers found Allen again for a 16-yard gain. Gordon added 16 of his own. Ekeler then came on and ran for 7 yards. A few less meaningful plays later Cheap Keenan Allen Jersey , Austin Ekeler lined up out wide, ran a sluggo, beat his man, and Rivers hit him with a perfect strike for a 22-yard touchdown.The defense held the 49ers to a three-and-out, then Desmond King returned the punt for 56 yards to give the Chargers a chance to score before the half. Ken Whisenhunt called a hilariously stupid run play that Gordon made worse by bouncing it outside to run even more time off the clock. An incomplete pass later, Caleb Sturgis actually made a field goal as time expired.Because the Chargers elected to receive to start off the game, San Francisco got the ball to start the second half. A three-and-out punctuate by a 10-yard sack from rookie Derwin James resulted in another punt and another nice return (this time, 21 yards) by King.Tyrell Williams made a beauty of a catch high-pointing the ball over a defender to pick up 24 yards. Gordon then added a very physical run up the middle for 13 yards. They capped off the drive with Rivers hitting Gordon on a simple pass play for 6 yards and a score.Beathard appeared to be cooking on the next drive completing passes of 12, 23, 15, and 10 yards (with roughing the passer penalties on top of that). However Drew Kaser Jersey , as they got into the red zone, Trevor Williams jumped a route and took it back 86 yards.Melvin Gordon caught a short pass and had a terrible fumble, but the Chargers got lucky as the 49ers screwed up the recovery by going out of bounds and Los Angeles held onto the ball. After trying to go right back to Gordon following the fumble, the Chargers elected to attempt a field goal on 4th & 5 from the 49ers’ 7-yard line. Shockingly, he converted.Beathard and co. came back on the field, but they were unable to do anything with it after Trevor Williams made a nice tackle on 3rd down just short of the sticks. The Chargers got the ball back and despite starting the drive with a truly great throw to Mike Williams, they were unable to get anything going afterward.On the second play of the next drive, Jahleel Addae took an embarrassingly bad angle in the open field and allowed George Kittle to rumble 82 yards for a touchdown.On the following drive, pressure had Rivers out of sorts as he failed to complete three consecutive passes after a nice 13-yard gain by Gordon.The 49ers took over and ran three plays while picking up a 1st down before the end of the 3rd quarter. Breida then made another nice run up the middle to move the sticks again. Beathard then hit Bourne for a 17-yard gain across the middle. Beathard avoided a sack and scrambled for a short gain on the next snap, but the real story was that Breida appeared to be injured. Two plays later on 3rd & 5, Beathard scrambled for the 1st down Cheap Mike Williams Jersey , but got annihilated by Casey Hayward at the end of the run. It was close, but Beathard was marked short and Kyle Shanahan challenged the spot. On further review, he was clearly short. Robbie Gould then came on to try a 33-yard field goal which he converted to give the 49ers the lead.After a touchback, the Chargers took over at their own 25. The drive got started with consecutive passes to Keenan Allen for 8 and 11 yards respectively. Ekeler ran through a would-be tackle in the backfield and cut upfield for 11 yards on the play. Gordon caught a pass for an easy 7 yards. Then Gordon broke off a long run for a 34-yard gain. Then, the Chargers ran a toss to the short side of the field for some reason and Ekeler had nowhere to go. Gordon came back on and caught a short pass for 5 yards to set up 3rd & 3 from the 3. Then they dialed up a bubble screen to Gates for some reason and it inevitably did not work, so Sturgis came on to try another field goal. He converted from 21 yards away.On the kick return, Michael Davis punched the ball out of the returner’s hands and Nick Dzubnar scooped it up before going out of bounds, but he didn’t seem to have full control and the call was overturned. The “home” crowd roared its approval. Breida started things off strong for the 9ers picking up 7 on 1st down, but the next two plays were incomplete pass attempts that had no real chance. The first of the two was broken up by a very nice play by Derwin James.Behind a very solid lead block by Keenan Allen, Gordon picked up 15 yards going over 100 yards on the day. Three straight plays to Ekeler got them withing half a yard of a 1st down. They lined up to go for it on 4th down, but they didn’t mean it and called a timeout. After that Cheap Kyzir White Jersey , Kaser came on to punt from the San Francisco 37. It was a truly cowardly decision.With the ball back, the 49ers went to their running game. Breida picked up 20 yards. Then Alfred Morris picked up another 4. On the next play, Isaac Rochell “intercepted” Beathard’s pass and returned it to the 19-yard line.The ball was knocked out by Derwin James, but technically the play was an interception as Beathard’s hand was moving forward.Ekeler got the ball on 1st down and picked up 5. On 2nd & 5, the Chargers didn’t get overly conservative and threw the ball on a designed rollout as Rivers found Virgil Green for a 1st down that brought us to the 2-minute warning. Three kneel downs later and the game was over.
