49ers training camp: Brandon Aiyuk looks poised for breakout season

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The Niners’ Saturday morning practice was fast and competitive. It was pretty clear, from start to finish, how talented this group is. Oh, and Trey Lance finished it off with a nice cross throw where he went up and broke the pocket to his left, then dove back to his left to find Ray-Ray McCloud at the goal line. The rest of it? You’re welcome …

1) You can’t walk the length of a field in the Niners facility without hearing someone bring up Brandon Aiyuk. He had a strong finish in 2021, of course, and he’s only built on that, becoming a more complete receiver at a very demanding spot for the position. From a skills perspective, his ability to win in man coverage should be huge for the 49ers to take advantage of defenses that overplay their vaunted run game (which now has Trey Lance involved).
