    San Francisco 49ers fifth-round TE George Kittle was the team's most prolific target during the recent minicamp and drew praise from QB Brian Hoyer for his football awareness and intelligence. 'He has a really good football awareness, is what I would call it. A feel for where to break, how to break, read zones. I've been surprised and, obviously, it's a good thing for us to have a guy who has that football awareness and some feel of the game to it,' Hoyer said.

    Huddle Up: The more Kittle continues to stand out, the more likely Vance McDonald will not be on the roster come the start of the regular season. The rookie is being prepped to take on a hybrid tight end/H-back role and an above-average blocker as well as a receiver, so he figures to get a lot of snaps right away. However, that role isn't likely to translate to significant value right away in the 49ers' offense, so he can be left undrafted in fantasy.
