49ers rookie offensive tackle Alex Boone will be making up for lost time in the next six weeks since because of league rules, he was ineligible to join the 49ers’ offseason program until Ohio State held its graduation ceremonies. He attended the team’s post-draft minicamp, but could not do anything else before reporting for the final five days of organized team activities.
“We’re not allowed to take our playbooks home with us,” Boone said. “I wanted to do that so badly because I knew I’d be behind. I tried to write down as much as I could. When I got back out here, they had installed another 200 plays. I’m like, ‘What’s going on?'” Boone will remain in the Bay Area for all but a week leading up to the July 30 opening of training camp where he will work out daily at the team’s practice facility and brush up on all the offense that was installed while he was away.
