  • A daily compilation of 49ers news from around the net. Saturday Jalen Hurd San Francisco 49ers Jersey , April 6th, 2019 edition."Holy spumoni gentlepersons, we’ve got a veritable smorgasbord of “not particularly interesting, but it’s the offseason” type articles today. It wouldn’t be sports media, let alone NN, if we didn’t take advantage of this fine opportunity to fire up the ol’ overreaction machine (patent pending) and scream ourselves hoarse. The 49ers signed defensive lineman Damontre Moore to a 1 year deal, which will likely end up as vet minimum, perhaps with a token signing bonus and performance-tied escalators. Considering the unusual sensitivity that has recently plagued this community regarding the future of the team’s pass rush, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Moore’s name come up frequently in discussions leading up to the draft. Of course, the major battle rages between the Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams camps, and adding yet another edge rusher might stoke that flame unnecessarily. Folks, take a deep breath and say it with me: camp body.Allow me to explain.MeasurablePlayer 1Player 2MeasurablePlayer 1Player 2You see, I’ve listed the combine results for a pair of 26 year old “edge rushers”. One has 10 career sacks, and the other has 11.5 career sacks, both contributing roughly 1 sack per 6 games in reserve roles. One of them is Damontre Moore, and the other is Cassius Marsh. It doesn’t matter which one is which, because they have the exact same athletic profile and very little production to show for it. Moore is not going to change the 49ers decision-making process in the draft lead up. His ceiling for this team is “depth”. Moving on, DeMarcus Lawrence earned a nice payday from the Dallas Cowboys, averaging $21 million annually over 5 years. Considering the value placed on pass rushers in this league, the deal shouldn’t be considered much of a surprise. Kyle Madson of Ninerswire pushed out a pair of articles considering how the deal might affect the 49ers; I’d suggest you read them as you would have read any April 1st article.The first one considers the possibility that DeForest Buckner’s agent might try to force a holdout if his client doesn’t get star edge rusher money. Although the connections are good, a leap of faith is required. Ultimately, it’s just feasible enough to start an uncomfortable conversation. The second one, which I’m still considering omitting, ponders a timeline in which the 49ers get rid of Buckner because he might cost too much in the future, and just draft Quinnen Williams instead. You know what, I’m getting all worked up about it. Finally, Arizona Cardinals head ball coach Kliff Kingsbury continues to embark on his “Why do people think I want Kyler Murray so badly?” tour, as he played up the strengths of Josh Rosen and committed to evolving his scheme accordingly. The more Kingsbury fights the Murray rumors, the more I’m starting to believe that the sports world saw a golden opportunity to haze the rookie, and it’s been the gift that keeps on giving. Ideally, this wouldn’t even be a blip on the radar, BUT, Nick Bosa hangs in the balance.49ers sign DL Damontre Moore to 1 year deal | Fitzgerald, SF Chronicle | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area | KNBR Media Services | Associated Press via ESPN | Madson Weston Richburg Jersey , NinerswireKliff Kingsbury remains vocally supportive of Josh Rosen | Chan, NBC Sports Bay AreaCould DeMarcus Lawrence’s contract affect DeForest Buckner’s? | Madson, NinerswireCould DeMarcus Lawrence’s contract affect the 49ers’ draft plans? | Madson, Ninerswire The 49ers found their quarterback menace of the future."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 49ers Salary CapLevi’s Stadium Events49ers Transactions49ers Injury News49ers Press Conferences & Conference CallsSan Francisco 49ers News49ers RosterHow 49ers plan to use Dee Ford in 2019New,207commentsTwo words: Quarterback menacePDTShareTweetShareShareHow 49ers plan to use Dee Ford in 2019Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY SportsThe biggest move of the San Francisco 49ers’ offseason was trading for former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford. General manager John Lynch sent a 2020 second-round pick to the Chiefs in exchange for the standout pass rusher. To facilitate the trade, the 49ers signed Ford to a five-year, $85 million contract. How does San Francisco plan to use their new asset on defense?NFL Network’s Brian Baldinger, as only he can, took to Twitter to explain Ford’s skillset and his impact on the 49ers’ defense. In short: Get after the quarterback.The 49ers view Ford as their LEO, a position along the defensive front that rushes the passer from the edge of the offensive line. Baldy compares Ford to former Seahawks defensive end Bruce Irvin, who filled the same role in Seattle. Coordinator Robert Saleh spent three seasons with the Seahawks from 2011-13, and sees Ford as the 49ers’ version of Irvin. Ford is listed at 6-foot-2 and 252 pounds, just one inch shorter and two pounds heaver than Irvin.“He fits the LEO mold perfectly,” Lynch said at the team’s introductory press conference. “That’s what we see him as. I guess it matters in that we’ve got to put him in the program as something, but I know he’s a difference-maker. We’ve been looking for a closer, someone who can close halves, close games, get off the field on third down.”Ford played outside linebacker in the Chiefs’ 3-4 defensive scheme in 2018 and put together one of the NFL’s best seasons as a pass rusher. Ford totaled 55 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 29(!) quarterback hits and 13 sacks. He had the No. 1 pass-rush grade (91.0) and the most total quarterback pressures among edge defenders (78), per Pro Football Focus.During base downs, where the 49ers utilize their standard 4-3 scheme, Ford will fill the LEO role. In sub-packages, usually reserved for passing downs, Ford’s role will resemble that of the outside linebacker he played in Kansas City, standing up and rushing the passer. Either way, Ford’s role on the 49ers’ defense will revolve around getting to the quarterback on every down.“My role is to go that way,” Ford said, simulating toward the quarterback. “Nothing else.”The second half of Baldy’s breakdown focuses on Ford’s ability to generate turnovers. The 49ers’ defense only generated seven turnovers last season, the fewest in NFL history. Ford matched that number on his own, forcing seven fumbles for a Chiefs defense that created 27 turnovers in 2018.Another benefit to adding Ford not mentioned in Baldy’s video is his ability to draw focus away from the interior of the defensive front. DeForest Buckner, the 49ers’ best pass rusher in 2018, generated 17 tackles for loss, 20 quarterback hits and 12 sacks while rushing from the interior. He now will face less attention from the offensive gameplan now that coordinators will need to account for Ford.We’ll leave you with every Dee Ford sack in 2018:
