Sam Bradford and the Minnesota starters failed again to reach the end zone, allowing concerns about the offensive line to smolder.

The San Francisco 49ers started hot but couldn’t hold on late on their way to a 32-31 preseason loss against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night.

After a disappointing performance last week against the Denver Broncos, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan was clearly unhappy. But in the exhibition game many consider the closest thing to a regular-season contest, Shanahan’s starting group put together its best effort, even though the backups couldn’t finish the job in the second half.

When the 49ers open training camp in late July, the race for playing time at cornerback will be wide open.

Second-year man Rashard Robinson looks like the leader of the pack at one spot, ahead of Keith Reaser, Prince Charles Iworah and Will Redmond. Dontae Johnson likely has the edge at the other corner position, ahead of Ahkello Witherspoon and K’Waun Williams. Reaser could also challenge Johnson, or fill the nickel corner slot, as could Redmond. Or, rookie Witherspoon, a third-round pick from Colorado, could make a move this summer to earn one of the jobs.

Carlos Hyde and Joe Williams have the complementary skill sets to develop into a great running back tandem for the San Francisco 49ers.

The San Francisco 49ers‘ decision to draft running back Joe Williams did not seem like that much of a deal when he was picked into the fourth round.

There’s little doubt the Arizona CardinalsDavid Johnson established himself with last season’s impressive and historic showing, but there’s a case that he could be the best running back in the league.

He doesn’t run behind the Pro Bowl-caliber offensive linemen that Ezekiel Elliott does in Dallas and has proven more durable than Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell. Johnson nearly accomplished the rare feat of 1,000 rushing and receiving yards in the same year.
