New Wideouts Debut at 49ers Camp

Posted Aug 2, 2013

Austin Collie and Lavelle Hawkins made their 49ers debuts at Friday night’s training camp session.

Austin Collie and Lavelle Hawkins made their 49ers debuts at Friday night’s training camp session. Both pass-catchers also happen to wear black visors on the facemaseks of their new gold helmets.

The new receivers spent time learning the offense during special teams periods of practice from wide receivers coach John Morton and from 11-year veteran Anquan Boldin.

By the end of the night, the new wide wideouts were involved in an 11-on-11 period with the third-team offense.

Collie caught a short hitch route. Hawkins caught a 30-yard deep ball from rookie B.J. Daniels that just led the six-year veteran receiver out of bounds.

Hawkins tried to plead his case to a referee that he dragged his feet inbounds to no avail.

Other than the new wideouts getting in the mix, Colin Kaepernick continued to find his tight end downfield.

The 49ers starting quarterback launched a deep post to Vernon Davis in a 7-on-7 period over cornerback Perrish Cox.

Kaepernick also tossed the only touchdown pass during a red zone team period. Kaepernick’s play-action fake sucked in the defense and allowed the starting tight end to run a crossing route freely to the left side of the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown grab.

Training Camp Notes

-Most of the same names who have been out of camp action sat out of Friday’s practice. Kyle Williams, Kassim Osgood, A.J. Jenkins, NaVorro Bowman, Jonathan Goodwin and Aldon Smith were not in action.

-Justin Smith sat out of the practice and was seen with a bandage over the middle finger on his right hand.

-Tarell Brown did not finish the practice session. Nnamdi Asomugha joined the first-team defense at right cornerback and stayed on the perimeter with the first-team nickel defense. Tramaine Brock also stepped in with the nickel defense and recorded an interception on Colt McCoy, who stared down Boldin on a comeback route.

-Trenton Robinson lined up again with the first-team defense at free safety. Nick Moody and Michael Wilhoite handled the inside linebacker spots.

-Donte Whitner timed a blitz perfectly in the opening team period for an easy sack of Kaepernick.

-Phil Dawson connected on field goals from 56 and 57 yards deep. Dawson also connected on a 39-yard field goal to close out a move-the-ball period led by the first-team offense.
