RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Lynch proved to be a diamond in rough for the 49ers last season, collecting 23 tackles and 6.0 sacks as a pass-rush specialist. With the release of Aldon Smith, Lynch will assume Smith's role as a pass-rushing linebacker.

Lynch is a pass-rush specialist whose chances of making the team rely on whether or not Aldon Smith receives a suspension.
