Five takeaways from Saturday’s Ravens-49ers first joint practice.

1. It was a clean, competitive practice just like Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh hoped for. There were no fights, and the pace was crisp. Jim Harbaugh presided over workouts on one field, while John Harbaugh was on the opposite field. Both coaches were in their element, with father Jack Harbaugh watching from the sidelines.

2. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had an impressive day throwing the football. He’s blessed with a big arm, but his accuracy never wavered. Kaepernick looks like a talented young player who has not reached his peak.

3. Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil got the best of 49ers right tackle Jonathan Martin in several drills. Dumervil used his strength to overpower Martin. The Ravens need a strong pass rush this season, and Dumervil looks like he may be able to spearhead that department.

4. Ravens safety Brynden Trawick left the field during practice with trainers and did not return. There was no immediate word on Trawick’s injury.

5. Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb (back) remained out of practice, along with guard Will Rackley (concussion) and nose tackle Terrence Cody (hip).
