Rookie Report with B.J. Daniels

Posted Jun 3, 2013

Rookie quarterback B.J. Daniels shares updates from 49ers OTAs.

The San Francisco 49ers rookie class will keep fans updated on the 2013 season in a “Rookie Report” series on 49ers.com. The NFL newcomers will share insight on their rookie seasons and their experiences on and off the field. Next up, seventh-round selection B.J. Daniels reports on his multi-tasking role of playing quarterback and running back at Organized Team Activities and shares information on his creative outlet off the field.


It’s tough just trying to learn quarterback. Really, I’m just trying to master the quarterback position and learn everything I can because the quarterback is supposed to know what everybody is doing on the field. It’s definitely cool being out here and having veterans in front of you, guys like Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James, who have done some really good things. Right now I’m just trying to improve as I learn the running back position.


I get a lot of tips from both. We have a lot of offensive coaches who are doing some really good things to help me. We have a lot of great minds, so I’m trying to soak it all in, stay positive and just continue to stay focused. I try to keep chipping away at things little by little.


We’re getting along great. We really are. On the offensive side of the ball, we’re really gelling together and on the defensive side, it’s a friendly competition. We always joke with each other when we go back to the locker room or when we go back to the hotel. We talk about who did what on each day. It’s cool and it’s exciting to come to practice with the goal of making each other better.


Right now, I’m just in the playbook. That’s the biggest thing. But I like to draw. I like to write and hang out with the new teammates, too. That’s pretty much all I’m doing right now. When it comes to art, I like to draw logos and I like to draw sports figures. A lot of the time I put myself in those positions, but that’s pretty much it.
