SF: Arik Armstead Quick Recap


It was an awful offseason for the San Francisco 49ers, and their defense saw a great deal of losses these past few months. To address the loss of players such as Patrick Willis, the 49ers selected pass rusher extraordinaire Arik Armstead.

What will be interested is to see if Armstead is the new heir-apparent for long-time San Francisco rusher Justin Smith or if they will use the lengthy, quick Armstead in a mixture between the line and linebacker. With his versatility, the 49ers could have a field day crafting schemes for their new defensive weapon.

He is still raw, but Armstead has the ability to make a impact for years to come on the San Francisco defense.

Instant Grade: B
