49ers sign first-round selection Arik Armstead

May 15, 2015 at 5:09 PM--


Today, the San Francisco 49ers announced the singing of their 2015 first-round selection, Arik Armstead.

On Monday, May 11, the team announced the signing of their other nine draft selections. Armstead, who could not report to the team until today due to school obligations, was the last remaining un-signed draft selection.

The University of Oregon's class schedule runs through May and NFL rules prohibited Armstead from joining full-team sessions until June. This will make him available for the 49ers mandatory minicamp, which begins on June 9. However, he can still take part in the team's rookie minicamp which started today.

Armstead was selected by the 49ers with the 17th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. In three seasons with the Ducks, Armstead has totaled 87 tackles (42 solo) and four sacks. In January of 2015, Armstead had nine tackles against Ohio State.

49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

By Kirk Larrabee

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to



49ers-Cowboys: Everyone stepped up after Nick Bosa's injury, says D.J. Jones and Arik Armstead

It was hard to see San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa down on the field late in the first half of Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone, including the fans, knows how much the young defensive end means to the 49ers defense. After the team lost Bosa early last season, the pass rush never really got going. Bosa was ruled out with a head injury and will likely enter the concussion protocol this week, ahead of the 49ers' next playoff game—a Divisional Round matchup against the Green Bay Packers. "We were thinking of him, and I'm happy that he'll be OK, and it's not too serious," defensive lineman Arik Armstead said after Sunday's game. "Obviously, we can't wait to get him back. He's a force for us, and I love playing alongside



49ers Notebook: Shanahan on Jimmy Garoppolo's mistakes; D.J. Jones' high praise for Arik Armstead; Deebo gets his wish

What did Kyle Shanahan think of Jimmy Garoppolo's performance against the Cowboys on Sunday? And what did D.J. Jones say after the 49ers' 23-17 win over the Cowboys that left Arik Armstead flattered? Let's answer those questions and more in this roundup of notes and quotes from the 49ers' postgame press conferences. * The good and not-so-good for Jimmy G: Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had an up-and-down performance against the Cowboys on Sunday, completing 16-of-25 passes for 172 yards with zero touchdowns and one interception. Garoppolo went 11-for-14 for 133 yards in the first half but cooled down considerably in the second half while having a couple moments that would have proven to be too costly had the Cowboys been able to successfully rally



Why it's time to give 49ers DL Arik Armstead the respect he deserves

By Rohan Chakravarthi

Arik Armstad's overpaid. The 49ers should've stuck with DeForest Buckner. Arik Armstead's had one good season in his career. Prior to this season, there were many narratives spoken about 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead and his value to this football team. He had been the man stuck in DeForest Buckner's shadow, as Buckner reminded fans during San Francsico's improbable Super Bowl run two seasons ago, while Armstead was just seen as his interior complement. However, after injuries to Nick Bosa, Solomon Thomas, and Dee Ford derailed San Francisco's defensive line early in the 2020 season, Armstead was left as the last member standing of that talented 2019 group and garnered a ton of attention. His contributions were severely underrated, as his
