Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

To no surprise, the San Francisco 49ers have optimized their offseason to date, seeing several players step up to the plate already. It is always a positive when teams, especially reigning conference champions, are seeing results as early as June.

The 'Niners have players, both new and returning, that have been building strong cases for field time in 2013.

Unfortunately, the 49ers still have several injured players in recovery, which has concentrated the participation in Santa Clara. On the other hand, it has opened windows for other players to shine—particularly the newcomers.

There is nothing better for a rookie or an incoming free agent than to show that he can rise to the occasion during the team's time of need. At this point, certain players have already used the opportunity in front of them to get recognized. 

At this time of year, practices are regulated to non-contact drills, which means offensive lines and entire defenses hardly have a chance to benefit. By and large, the activities pander to the finesse players like pass-catchers and special-teamers.

When it comes to the totality of the team, the true value of OTAs and minicamp lies in mental reps and overall time on task.
