After playing with the 49ers last season, FOX Sports 1 NFL analyst Randy Moss claims that Colin Kaepernick and Vernon Davis never built a rapport last season.
“From my time there last year, it didn’t seem Kaepernick and Vernon Davis had a rapport. They haven’t shown that yet,” Moss said via conference call, according to the San Jose Mercury News, via CSN Bay Area.
Davis says he’s on a different level with Kaepernick this season.
“I feel like me and Colin, we are on a different level then we were last season,” the eight-year veteran said. “It really takes some time to really learn his different receivers, and that’s all predicated on time. It takes time. But we’ve been through minicamp, OTAs, as well as training camp, which we just finished. And we’ve had more than enough time to build on what we started.”
Davis says working with the receivers for all of training camp really helped him this year.
“They really challenged me this training camp, because whatever I see them do, I try to do it better,” Davis said. “That’s how you grow. That’s how you become a better player, and you really craft your position.
“Last year, I didn’t really work with the wide receivers as much, maybe five times in training camp. But I’ve been working with them all training camp so I had a chance to really detail my routes and get an opportunity to learn what they were doing so it helped me out tremendously.”
