Wes Welker is once again making an impact on the football world.

The two-time All-Pro wide receiver was recently added to the 49ers' coaching staff as a receivers coach -- and he isn't wasting any time working with newly drafted wide receiver Deebo Samuel.

In the second week of the team's OTAs, Welker was mic'd up as he worked with the former South Carolina wideout and the rest of the team.

"I don't know whether to commend you for the swag you got going on, or fine your a--," Welker said to receiver Kendrick Bourne in the 49ers' latest edition of 'Mic'd Up.'

Perhaps both? Welker didn't appear to hold back with any statements he was making toward members of the team.

Welker, a 12-year veteran receiver in his own right, even ran a few sprints with Samuel. Dare I say he's still got it, even after his retirement. 

The 49ers were starving for another wide receiver to pair up with Dante Pettis. Coach Kyle Shanahan was rather impressed with Samuel at the Senior Bowl and despite not being the tallest guy out there, Samuel has the ability to get open quickly, according to Matt Maiocco's scouting report.

If you want to be the best, sometimes you have to learn from the best -- especially if it's someone like Welker who will let you know when the work is done.
