Trey Lance impressed Peter King in the 49ers camp with two key attributes – NBC Sports

The 49ers made a center-centre starting statement: Trey Lance is the man they believe could lead the franchise to a sixth Super Bowl. San Francisco paid a heavy price To jump from No. 12 overall to No. 3 in the 2021 NFL Draft for North Dakota State Producer Selection.

Furthermore, the 49ers did not have a first-round pick until 2024 and They killed Jimmy Garoppolo on the benchwho brought them to Super Bowl LIV and the 2022 NFC Championship Game, for Lance.

Ahead of the official start of the Lance era, NBC Sports Bay Area’s Matt Mayoko spoke with NBC Sports’ Peter King on the latest issue of “49ers Talk” to discuss what he sees from the 22-year-old this season.

“He’s very confident,” King told Mayoko. “…From his conversation with me, I consider him to be doing a very good job of regulating the outside world.”

King also said he told Lance how the NFL differs in terms of young players. In the past, teams would have been patient to make sure a player was ready when given the starting assignment.

Now, teams list the player as a starter and quickly move up from the middle after two or three years, rather than waiting. However, even with the NFL shifting to that mindset, he told Lance King he’s not worried about heading into the first year as a start.

“I basically told him it was so different from when I started covering the NFL that if you don’t make it as a player-leader at the beginning too soon, people are going to abandon you,” King said.

“In a lot of cases, it ends up banging the drums out of town and saying, ‘Hey, with all due respect to you and the people doing your job. I don’t really care what you say, and I can’t. All I care about is what my coach says.'”

Lance looked good on his first preseason NFL game in the 49ers’ 28-21 win against the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium, including a deep pass for receiver Danny Gray that landed a 76-yard touchdown. The franchise expects this to be a sign of things to come during the 2022 season.
