RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 2013 fifth-round pick has been a steal for the 49ers. He has improved every season and his high motor earned him a starting job last season. He finished with a career-high 59 tackles and 2.5 sacks. With two young up-and-comers expected to start at the ends this season, Dial is the favorite to be the team's third starting lineman.
Never a highly-regarded prospect, Dial worked hard to earn a spot on the 49ers' 53-man roster last season. He filled in at several spots on the defensive line when injuries struck the team. His versatility and work ethic have him back in the mix to earn a spot on the roster yet again.
Fellow nose tackle Glenn Dorsey (biceps) will miss significant time, but Ian Williams (ankle) is back on the field effectively pushing Dial back into a backup role for the nose tackle position.
Dial will open camp on the sidelines in 2013 as he continues to recover from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his big toe. He is still expected to make the 53-man roster but will work as a back-up to starting nose-tackle Ian Williams.
