The 49ers addition of WR Jerome Simpson has been a positive under-the-radar development for both sides of the ball. Here's why: Simpson is making plays on offense, and he's helping his defensive teammates prepare against a long, rangy receiver who is capable of getting deep and taking the top off a defense. Simpson made a pair of brilliant catches against his defensive counterparts. After failing to secure a deep ball in the individual period of practice, Simpson made a leaping grab to open up 11-on-11 work. He later beat Dontae Johnson down the right sideline to hook up with Colin Kaepernick on a 60-plus yard touchdown reception. Simpson's presence, along with Torrey Smith, appears to be giving San Francisco a valuable one-two punch of downfield threats.
