Rohan Chakravarthi of 49ers Webzone stopped by to chat all things training camp on the latest edition of the Niner Noise Podcast.

San Francisco 49ers training camp is officially in the books, although there are still more than a handful of practices that’ll help head coach Kyle Shanahan determine which players from the now-group of 85 make up the eventual 53-man roster when Week 1 rolls around.

And with one preseason game already in the books, the Niners’ 28-21 exhibition win over the Green Bay Packers, Shanahan and Co. are fully immersed in joint practices and scrimmages against the Minnesota Vikings ahead of their preseason Week 2 bout on Saturday, Aug. 20.

After that, Shanahan will again be tasked with removing five more players from the preseason roster.

Camp itself had plenty of takeaways that helped formulate the depth chart ahead of the Green Bay game.

To help dissect those, Robert Morrison of the Niner Noise Podcast spoke with someone who was there for all of it, 49ers Webzone’s Rohan Chakravarthi.

Niner Noise Podcast: 49ers training camp talk with Rohan Chakravarthi

Chakravarthi, on hand with the media during Niners camp, provided more than just a handful of small observations throughout the two-plus weeks leading up to the preseason and thereafter.

One player whom Chakravarthi was impressed by was third-year wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, whose surge in the second week of camp would have made him the team MVP if such a thing existed.

Needless to say, Aiyuk and fellow wide receiver Deebo Samuel came up on the podcast, which you can listen to in its entirety below:

Of course, it’d be impossible to leave out quarterback Trey Lance and what had been an up-and-down training camp but filled with plenty of positives.

Those are just a handful of the items discussed.

You’ll want to check out Chakravarthi’s work, both with our good friends at 49ers Webzone and on the 49ers Red Zone Podcast, too.
