Last year, Lemonier graded highly on pressure but only got the one sack. Some guys get close but don't have that magic that puts up the big sack numbers. Aldon strikes like a mongoose from great distances, that's one reason he gets so many sacks. So Corey's a big question mark.
Dorsey has never been known for sacks; Dial likely never will be.
Rookies rarely get big sack numbers; even guys like Robert Quinn had quiet rookie seasons, so Carradine and Lynch (if he makes the squad) are not likely to have significant production.
Aldon's gonna miss a few weeks, maybe a lot of weeks. Maybe a lot more weeks if he messes up again.
Skuta came through with a couple of sacks in the post season, he's a wildcard.
Brooks has never cracked double digit sacks in his career as a 49er, and in pro football, it's sad how quickly production drops off for many players as they reach their third decade. So he's probably good for about 8 sacks max.
So I have low expectations about the pass rush early in the season, at least as far as sack numbers are concerned. They may get hurries and pressures. The second half, though, might be kinda epic.
