07:10 AM ET 08.07 | So far, so good for San Francisco wide receiver Ricardo Lockette. [Lockette] who had not made many plays since the opening of training camp, had his strongest day to highlight the 49ers' first non-padded practice in more than a week. Lockette (rhymes with rocket) hadn't received many opportunities to prove himself in the first 10 practices of training camp. He had been nursing a right hip pointer, too. But he showed up in a big way on Tuesday. Lockette caught six passes in 11-on-11 drills. Three of his receptions were spectacular. The 49ers' first-team offensive line consisted of Adam Snyder at left guard and Daniel Kilgore at center. Mike Iupati watched from the sideline. He sustained a minor knee injury two days ago but practiced Monday. Jonathan Goodwin has not practiced fully since July 28.

Lockette rocket? That was the best part of this article.

Shame this guy probably has no clue who the original Rocket and Pocket Rocket are.

Hit the nail on the head Spot. Don't see Moss hangin in with all these young and Vets like Boldin on the roster.

Moss never re-signed, did he?

You might be right, as far as Jan. I read he was. Still an awesome corp. of receivers they have.

This guy's name being in the news just highlights how deep they are digging into the receiver pool. It's a position at which the 49ers have been thin (production, not talent) for a while now, plus the injuries. At least they have Boldin, plus Davis.

There are currently 12 WR's on the roster including Crabtree and Manningham both of whom are on the PUP.

Active players- Anquan Boldin, A.J. Jenkins, Kyle Williams, Quinton Patton, Ricardo Lockette, Chad Hall, Marlon Moore, Kassim Osgood, Austin Collie, Lavelle Hawkins.

CSN felt the need to remind me that Lockette rhymes with rocket?

Lockette has world class speed. He is 6'2" 220. He has 2 career receptions when he was at Seattle both were over 40 yards and one was for a TD.

THe signing of Collie and Hawkins has really sparked an intense competition amongst WR. Yes it was very noticeable, Many of the 49er WR's were not at practices, complaining about bumps and bruises. THe day after those 2 were signed everyone got better and their individual performances have improved remarkably.
