NFL Betting Analysis: Life Without Smith in San Francisco
Best of the Rest: Shawn Lemon
Though it looks like one the above four players will most likely get Smith’s job, OLB Shawn Lemon (who was signed by the 49ers barely two weeks ago) could make a case for solid time and a place in the team’s 53-man roster. Outside his self-explanatory video that was compiled by the Steelers when they signed him earlier in the offseason (before releasing him due to injury concerns), Lemon proved to be a solid player as an undrafted free agent in the CFL. For example, in 2014, he finished with 13 sacks and eight forced fumbles in 18 games. If the rest of the players above him fail to live up to expectation, Lemon should certainly be able to snatch the opportunity and make good value as a reliable pass-rusher.
