The Newark Star-Ledger talks about first round pick Anthony Davis, and how he is looking to stay with the first team and be a starter from day one:
One week of training camp with the San Francisco 49ers has been enough for Anthony Davis to establish himself as the team’s starting right tackle. That was the plan all along when the 49ers traded up in the draft this spring to take Davis with the No. 11 overall selection. As the team took a break from the summer grind Sunday with one brief walkthrough in shorts, the rookie from Rutgers is already ahead of schedule. “I never thought about not being able to do it,” Davis said. “You have to go in with that mindset because it’s rough in there. My goal is to get better and make progress every day.” Davis has gradually been worked in with the first-team offense since San Francisco began practice Aug. 1. His work at right tackle increased as the week progressed to the point Davis spent both of Saturday’s practice sessions with the first team ahead of incumbent Adam Snyder.
