The San Francisco 49ers kicked off a three-day mandatory veteran minicamp on Tuesday. Here are the key observations made from the opening session.
1. Young CBs Step Up
Just as Eric Wright decided to retire from the National Football League, the depth of the 49ers cornerback group showed itself on the practice field.
It was also interesting to see rookie
2. Notable Cameos
George Seifert began the minicamp session with a short speech to the team. Jim Harbaugh introduced the 2014 Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Famer and listened closely while Seifert spoke.

4. Missing in Action
San Francisco's all-time rushing king
Elsewhere, wide receivers
The other three aformentioned wideouts appear to be "working through something." They did some movement drills with the strength and conditioning staff. Crabtree ran sprints off to the side, but it wasn't under the football staff's supervision, so nothing to worry about.
Veteran defensive linemen
5. Boldin and Lloyd Work
With four receivers not involved in team drills, Lloyd seemed to be a busy man. The same could be said for Anquan Boldin. Both veteran receivers were heavily involved with the passing game. They lined up with the first-team offense throughout the day.
Boldin also recorded a touchdown, beating Morris to haul in a red zone touchdown pass thrown by Bethel-Thompson.
