49ers training camp stock watch: OL Jaylon Moore
A year ago, San Francisco wanted to take offensive lineman Jaylon Moore and turn him from a tackle into a guard, yet the rookie ended up serving in a number of reserve roles, only to be flushed out from primary swing-tackle duties by now-Denver Broncos lineman Tom Compton.
It might be too much to expect a lot out of a fifth-round NFL Draft pick in year two, let alone year one, but Moore seems to be on the stronger side of the bubble despite the 49ers having some issues with their O-line depth this year once again.
Primarily working out with the second-string O-line during camp, Moore will occasionally be tabbed with first-team tackle duties on rest days for starting tackles, Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey, which is a good sign for Moore.
The only issue, however, is the second-year pro’s efforts in these roles haven’t exactly been great, and he’s been regularly overpowered by the Niners’ stout pass-rushers off the edge.
Granted, having to line up against EDGE Nick Bosa isn’t an easy task, but Moore hasn’t completely separated himself from the competition either.
