Inside Linebacker Shayne Skov
Third-year linebacker Shayne Skov starts off the regular season on the practice squad once again. He couldn’t beat out veteran linebacker Michael Wilhoite for one of the remaining spots on the 53-man roster.
Although Skov did manage to appear in 15 regular-season games for the 49ers in 2015, although most of these appearances were on special teams.
Skov’s special teams abilities do give San Francisco some flexibility and insurance against injury.
Last week against the Chargers, Skov ranked second on the Niners defense with seven tackles and also had two passes defended.
It’s worth noting he played every defensive snap as well.
