The 49ers’ offseason overhaul has spared most of former general manager Trent Baalke’s draft picks. Of the 31 Baalke draft selections GM John Lynch inherited when he was hired in January, 27 remain on the roster. The 49ers didn’t re-sign free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton, and they released center Marcus Martin and running back Mike Davis. But that doesn’t mean Baalke’s other hand-picked players should breathe easily.
49ers draft pick Trent Taylor: a short receiver who grows on youFive years before 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan became smitten with a too-tiny, too-slow wide receiver, Tony Franklin was the first to fall in love with Trent Taylor. In 2012, Franklin was Louisiana Tech’s offensive coordinator and Taylor was a 160-pound high school senior who couldn’t get some Division II schools to notice him. But Franklin couldn’t take his eyes off him when Taylor attended Louisiana Tech’s summer camp.
Before we get to the 49ers gushing over rookie head coach Kyle Shanahan’s brilliance, let’s get this out of the way: Some of these same players praised Shanahan’s predecessors — Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly — in the months after those coaches were hired. In other words, it’s customary for athletes to initially exalt the new leader that controls their playing time. Now, with that out of the way, let’s get to the new-coach gushing.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
