In San Francisco, the 49ers have had what has been termed 'very successful' by those close to the team. The transistion period with a new head coach and offensive focus that was expected to take half of camp has come together quickly. Some of the reasoning behind the quick success thus far has been the standup approach of communicating by Dennis Erickson.
Throughout training camp rookie offensive tackle Kwame Harris has been consistently improving. One immediate area the coaching staff worked with Harris on was in regards to his footwork. In college, Harris depended on his size to overpower the defensive lineman. He has quickly found out that his lumbering, and at times physical style did not work in the pro-camp. Struggling at the beginning of camp, the coaching staff worked with Harris to step-back and squat quicker in his pass-blocking technique, while opening up his leg base to establish a solid foundation.
Coming off ankle surgery, defensive back Jason Webster has been chomping at the bit and will practice with team this week.
