49ers held private workout with Kansas pass rusher Dorance Armstrong

Apr 16, 2018 at 8:18 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers were among numerous teams to hold a private workout with Kansas defensive end Dorance Armstrong, according to a report from Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Armstrong has visited with the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, and Buffalo Bills and worked out for the 49ers, Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, and New Orleans Saints.

In three seasons with the Jayhawks, Armstrong registered 142 combined tackles, 34.5 for a loss, 15.5 sacks, eight passes defensed, six forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries. During his sophomore campaign in 2016, he brought down the quarterback 10 times while recording 56 combined tackles with 20 for a loss and was named first-team All-Big 12.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-4 and 246-pound Armstrong had a 40-time of 4.87 seconds, a vertical jump of 30 inches, a broad jump of 118 inches, completed the three-cone drill in 7.12 seconds, had 20 reps in the bench press, a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.23 seconds, and a 60-yard shuttle time of 11.82 seconds.

NFL.com projects Armstrong to be a fourth- or fifth-round draft pick.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com, who compares Armstrong to Kamerion Wimbley, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Armstrong is an intriguing prospect with the build and fluid athleticism of a shooting guard. Armstrong's drop in production can be attributed to a change in scheme that asked him to play run first and pass second. His game revolves around athletic ability over technique, but his poor forty times at both the Combine and his pro day could cause concerns. Armstrong has the tools and upside to become an eventual starter at outside linebacker in a 3-4."

Earlier this week, CBS Sports compiled a list of every NFL team's most questionable offseason move, and pointed to the Jimmy Garoppolo saga for the San Francisco 49ers, which still remains unanswered as mandatory minicamp has concluded. While there were several potential choices, such as San Francisco's contract negotiations with Deebo Samuel that ultimately resulted in a trade request by the fourth-year receiver, CBS Sports's Jordan Dajani believed that the outcome of the Garoppolo situation was the most questionable move. "We could discuss something related to Deebo Samuel here, but it seems
