If you missed Blake’s birthday last week, he probably won’t mind too much. 49ers rookies toured the facility’s museum today.
If you want to catch up with Sean, he will be home for a few weeks through to early July.

To give an idea of what is coming up for Blake, this link describes the 49ers off season dates.
The TL:DR version is that there will be a rookie mini camp for 3 days in the next 2 weeks followed by a series of OTA’s (organized team activities) which are 10 days of non-contact practice spread over the month of May then a mandatory mini camp from June 7th to June 9th.
The team will have a few weeks off then return in July for training camp to prepare for the season. Blake will have a chance to return home between the mandatory minicamp and the start of official 2016 season training camp.
Sean will be returning home shortly for the annual offseason return home and be preparing for Baylor’s 2016 preseason camp and season.
Baylor’s offensive scheme was a factor, but Muir allowed just two sacks in 907 pass snaps over the last two years. https://t.co/egALhM4TJ2

More later but to back up a few steps, Blake was one of 3 Baylor football players to be awarded membership to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Society.
‘Qualifications for membership in the NFF Hampshire Honor Society include:
• Being a starter or a significant contributor in one’s last year of
eligibility (or a senior who has declared for the NFL Draft) at an NCAA
Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, Division
II, Division III or an NAIA college or university;
• Achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout entire course of undergraduate study; and
• Meeting all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.’

These tweets pretty much sum up the situation.
More on this tomorrow, and yes we’ll have to change the header!
