San Francisco 49ers: WR Michael Crabtree and Other Minicamp Standouts

For the past few days, some of the San Francisco 49ers have been standouts at minicamp, including wide receiver Michael Crabtree for starters.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had this to say regarding Crabtree’s performance at the teams minicamp, reported via the team website.

At the end of last year he still wasn’t 100%. He has a lot more burst to him now. Looks really good.

Furthermore, here were more standouts noted by Taylor Price, the 49ers senior reporter.

These names translated from Twitter lingo are rookie running back Carlos Hyde, rookie wide receiver Bruce Ellington, offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore, running back Marcus Lattimore, and wide receiver Quinton Patton.

Lastly, here are coach Harbaugh’s list of minicamp standouts and comments noted in the team website..

Individual players, thought LaMichael James really stood out this week. Kendall Hunter had a great camp. Really happy with Blaine Gabbert, his progress up until now and this entire week. Very good. Brandon Lloyd is standing out. Bruce Ellington is standing out. I’m kind of focusing on new guys, new additions.

Looks like the 49ers are turning heads so far at minicamp. We will see more of the team as the rookies start practicing July 16, injured veterans and quarterbacks practice on the 18th and then the whole team is scheduled to report to training camp, which begins on July 23rd. Three public practices are scheduled at the new Levi’s Stadium, which should be exciting for all who are able to attend.
