P.M. practice: Pascoe impresses

Rookie quarterback Nate Davis took his first 11-on-11 snaps as a 49er. His first official pass - a quick screen to Zak Keasey - was forgettable. Davis missed his target by a healthy margin. But he also had a couple of completions over the middle to Michael Spurlock and Dominique Zeigler that showed off his impressive arm strength.

Speaking of strong arms ... Shaun Hill had the longest play of the afternoon, a 50 yarder to Jason Hill, which the receiver caught in stride. Shaun Hill also connected with Josh Morgan on a good-looking crossing route and hit Spurlock on a sideline pattern.

The most prolific receiver? How about rookie tight end Bear Pascoe, who caught everything - about half a dozen passes - that was thrown his way. Look out, Vernon Davis ...

The rookie minicamp continues through tomorrow, but there will be no practices, just meetings. There also will be no media availability, but don't worry, I have more in my notebook for later this week ...
