Good Morning Faithful,

Here are the top 49ers headlines for Wednesday, June 23.

New and Notable Defensive Scheme Analysis

Pro Football Focus looked at all 32 teams to break down how each club constructs their defense, how effective they are compared to the rest of the league and their outlook for the 2021 season. Here's what the analytic's site said about the 49ers:

2020 Defensive Pass Efficiency Rank: 9

2020 Defensive Rush Efficiency Rank: 5

2020 Base Coverage: Cover 3 and quarters

2020 Third-Down Mentality: Blitz and play Cover 1

"DeMeco Ryans takes over for Robert Saleh as the 49ers defensive coordinator for 2021. Ryans worked under Saleh, so we can expect the defense to stay relatively stable. The 49ers played one of the highest rate of quarters coverages on early downs to go along with basing out of Cover 3. They have a low blitz rate on early downs but then turn up the pressure on passing downs. San Francisco ranked 19th in early-down blitz rate and third on third down last year. Overall, the unit ranked in the top 10 on early downs and third downs in EPA allowed per play."
