No. 2: Trey Lance must build a rapport with 49ers pass-catchers

Everyone knows chemistry is one of the most important aspects an NFL offense can have. Without it, teams will have a great deal of difficulty being able to create and execute explosive plays.

Trey Lance has obviously had some experience with his receivers, but it will be crucial that he takes a page from Jimmy Garoppolo’s book when it comes to knowing where his teammates are at all times.

While Jimmy G may have his doubters, it cannot be denied that he always knew where and when to throw to his pass-catchers. Lance will have to be able to understand this and add this element to his toolbox, so that if ever he’s in a passing slump, his established chemistry with his receivers may be able to bail him out of a sticky situation.

It may sound trivial, but reps with his receiving targets will be crucial to Lance’s future success with this football team.
