RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Arik Armstead.
The 2015 first-round pick is entering make-or-break territory with the 49ers after two unimpressive and injury-plagued seasons. Assuming good health, we could see the best version of Armstead after he reported to camp at a much-lighter 275 pounds. He was used as a run-stuffer in the 49ers' previous 3-4 defense, but the 23-year-old will line up as a traditional defensive end in Robert Saleh's revamped 4-3 scheme, which could result in higher sack totals for Armstead. His new size and role could result in IDP relevance for the first time in his career.
Armstead was eased into action during his rookie season, only participating in 33 percent of teamís defensive snaps and finishing with 19 tackles and a pair of sacks. He is projected to start at one of the 3-4 defensive end positions during his sophomore campaign and has the size and strength to be a disruptive force in the backfield.
Armstead will compete for the starting left defensive end spot vacated by Justin Smith. He is considered raw, but he can earn the spot with a strong showing during training camp. Either way, he likely won't record enough sacks to be relevant in IDP leagues this season.
