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."

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad. Let's compare the offensive position groups from each season to see who has the edge.

49ers and Trey Lance Have Some Work to Do

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance got his second career start Sunday against the Houston Texans and came away with a convincing win. Lance was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL draft and is the heir to the throne as the future leader of the San Francisco 49ers. Sunday's matchup started a little rocky for the 49ers. It seemed there was a slight disconnect between Lance and head coach Kyle Shanahan early on. Kyle Shanahan told the CBS commentators that he's still learning how to call plays for Trey Lance and that it's going to be a process.Pretty clear that he didn't want to deal with that process in

14 'shaky' observations from the 49ers win over the Texans

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers were in a must-win situation. A loss to the Houston Texans would make a postseason berth much more difficult. And though the first half didn't exactly give fans a lot of confidence, the 49ers came back strong in the second half to win the game, 23-7. The team started off shaky, and the quarterback looked shaky for a while, but the 49ers (and that rookie quarterback) made enough plays in the end. Here are my 14 shaky observations from the 49ers win on Sunday: In case you hadn't heard, rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his second career start. He recorded his very first win as a starting quarterback. Lance looked like a rookie making only his second start. He looked lost at times, and made some poor decisions. But that's
