Arik Armstead just misses NFL Top 100 Players of 2020, ranking No. 104

Jul 29, 2020 at 5:34 PM--


So close.

San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead had a career-high and team-leading 10 sacks last season and added two more in the playoffs. The team rewarded him with a five-year deal worth up to $85 million.

NFL Network is counting down the NFL Top 100 Players of 2020. In doing so, it revealed some of the names who just missed this year's version of the annual ranking.

Armstead came in at No. 104 in voting.

The NFL Top 100 Players list is voted on by players and is based on performance during the previous year and predicted performance during the upcoming season. The list is in its 10th season on NFL Network.

The 49ers drafted Armstead out of Oregon with the No. 17 overall pick in 2015. He registered 54 combined tackles, two passes defensed, and two forced fumbles to go along with his sack total through 16 starts in 2019.

Armstead has recorded 152 combined tackles, 19 sacks, three passes defensed, and three forced fumbles through his five NFL seasons.

Five 49ers players — tight end George Kittle, defensive end Nick Bosa, cornerback Richard Sherman, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and linebacker Fred Warner — made it onto the NFL Top 100 Players of 2020.

Two San Francisco 49ers were named to the list. The first to represent the Niners is second-year pass rusher Nick Bosa, who comes in at No. 42. "Nick Bosa proved unblockable at times along the San Francisco 49ers' talented defensive front," wrote Bleacher Report. "No other rookie came close to the 80 pressures he generated last season, according to Pro Football Focus. Last year's No. 2 overall pick is well on his way to superstardom and will get there if he

49ers-Cardinals: Deebo Samuel misses another practice, making his availability for Sunday unlikely

The San Francisco 49ers got one wide receiver back this week, as rookie Brandon Aiyuk returned to practice. It doesn't look like they will be as lucky with another injured wideout. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were hopeful to have second-year receiver Deebo Samuel on the field with Aiyuk on Sunday. That now seems unlikely after Samuel wasn't out on the practice field with his teammates on Friday. He has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. No Deebo
