This edition of the NFC West Report goes around the 49ers division to see how each of their three division rivals faired in the 2015 NFL Draft.
To learn more about the San Francisco 49ers first-round pick and his upbringing, we recently tracked down Armstead's former coach for a interview.
Believe it or not, the 6-foot-7, 292-pound behemoth is actually a little brother. And throughout his childhood, Arik idolized his eldest sibling, Armond.
The 49ers announced they have waived/injured LB Chase Thomas. Thomas (6-4, 255) spent the 2015 season between San Francisco's practice squad and active roster.
