49ers met with Western Michigan OLB Keion Adams

Mar 27, 2017 at 12:04 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are among numerous teams that have met with Western Michigan OLB Keion Adams, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. The other teams were the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, and New York Jets.


Adams, who was a senior in 2016, had 49 tackles last season. 18 of those tackles were for a loss. He also had 7.5 sacks in 2016, which is important for a 49ers team that is searching for a pass rush. In 2016, the 49ers defense tied for 21st in the league in sacks with just 33 total. Only nine other defenses got to the quarterback less.

Through his four years with Western Michigan, Adams had 126 total tackles, 33 for a loss, 14.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and one pass defended.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Adams is an elusive pass rusher who wins with athleticism and foot quickness, but who may lack the size and length to be considered an every-down edge player in a 3-4 front. Adams has pursuit quickness around the field and can be very disruptive when allowed to shoot gaps against the run, but he will have to prove he can set a strong edge and hold his ground at the point of attack if he wants to become anything more than a situational rusher."

A long time ago, I thought the most unprecedented event in the sports world was Game 3 of the 1989 World Series getting pushed back ten days due to an earthquake. Sports will find a way to endure - through earthquakes, war, a global pandemic and if professional football is played before a couch-bound audience. The San Francisco 49ers will play sloppy football Sunday, but the other NFL franchises will join them. Remember it's been nine months - if not longer - since players were on the field in a live football contest. Forty-Niner head coach Kyle Shanahan will have his men ready for Sunday afternoon, even if the game turns into a sludgy swamp of mental errors, blown coverages, and missed assignments. Indeed, the other 31 coaches in the league are

22 Will Be a Lucky Number for the 49ers in 2020

By Tim Sprinkles

When thinking about how NFL offenses have evolved over the years, many have moved away from core philosophies like establishing the run game, to a more open, Air Raid-style spread passing attack, with read options and run-pass-options (RPOs). These advancements have put more speedy pass catchers on the field and allowed athletic playmakers to put defenses in difficult situations. Defenses have evolved as well, in order to counter these offensive changes, by getting smaller and quicker at positions that were traditionally manned by larger, more physical players. This has resulted in linebackers who are built more like large safeties, and defensive tackles who are smaller, and quicker, as opposed to hulking, run-stuffers. It appears that Kyle Shanahan is evolving his offense to
