San Francisco 49ers defensive end DeForest Buckner will find himself in a similar role to what current teammate and second-year defensive end Arik Armstead was in last season. Buckner will find himself in a constant rotation with the entire interior defensive line all season long.
Rotation with the possibility of becoming a full time starter.
Immediate. Buckner’s presence will be felt when he is on the field.
Thirty-eight tackles, 4.0 sacks and 12 tackles for loss.
