The 49ers had their last minicamp on Thursday afternoon available to the media again without holdouts TE Vernon Davis and OT Alex Boone. Jm Harbaugh is obviously upset that the two veterans aren’t participating in the in camps but isn’t letting it be a distraction to the camp or the progress that the players who are in camp are making.

Eric Wright was in the plans for the secondary but he decided to retire, for personal reasons, earlier in the week which put a wrench in the original plans of the 49ers who now have to switch to make the adjustment in personnel schemes without Wright.

Coach Harbaugh was pleased with the three-day minicamp however. He thought the team was getting better at multiple positions and after nine weeks of off-season training, no one had any serious injuries and the team as a whole remained healthy.

He mentioned that he was particularly happy with the work of QB Blaine Gabbert, RB Kendall Hunter, and RB LaMichael James on offense. Collectively, the offensive line progressed extremely well and, “got better, and better, and better” as the weeks went along too.

WR Brandon Lloyd stood out as well as WR Bruce Ellington.

Coach Harbaugh also noted that Tramaine Brock had perfect attendance for the third year in row and praised the work of the entire secondary including S Antoine Bethea and second-year S Eric Reid.

He was quick to mention that fifty-nine players had perfect attendance this year, up from thirty-one last year.

Rookies can stay and workout at the facility until training camp officially begins for rookies on July 16th. Injured veterans and quarterbacks will report on July 18th and the rest of the players are required to report in on July 23rd.

First day of practice is July 24th. Once practice begins, three practices are scheduled for inside Levi’s Stadium and the public will be invited to attend for their first look at the new facility.
