The 49ers on Monday announced a 5-year, $85 million extension for DE Arik Armstead, keeping him from hitting free agency. Armstead started his career a bit slowly, including missing 18 games across 2016-17. But he broke out with 10 sacks and 18 QB hits in his 5th season and won't turn 27 until mid-November. Expect Armstead to land in DL2 territory in our 2020 IDP rankings.

The 49ers have placed DL Arik Armstead on IR with a shoulder injury. That's no big loss for IDP owners and a barely notable move on 1 of the league's worst defenses. We'll see where he stands heading into next season.

After trading down from 15 with the Chargers, the 49ers chose DE Arik Armstead with the 17th pick of the NFL Draft. Armstead totaled just 4 sacks over his 3 college seasons, so he might need to prove his stat potential to IDP owners. He also might sit behind DE Justin Smith for 2015, but that could present a starting opportunity as soon as 2016. Armstead's a solid pick for the Niners D but doesn't come with a ton of IDP upside.
