Golden Nuggets: Pass rush anybody? When I realized the 49ers defensive line had a nice little test against the Minnesota Vikings I started praying maybe this would be the end of their pass rush woes. Perhaps the defensive line had finally gelled. 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh has me even more hopeful now that he's even saying they figured some things out.

49ers 90-in-90: DB Tarvarius Moore If a factory stamped prototypical single-high defense cornerbacks from a mold, you'd get Tarvarius Moore.

His 95th-percentile SPARQ score, a score better than draft darling Derwin James, made him an absolutely salivating prospect.

49ers expect to be "much further along" in pass rush The play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo over the final weeks of the 2017 season has created a lot of optimism about the 49ers's hopes for this season, but neither a quarterback nor an offense alone can carry a team to success. One thing that would help on the defensive side of the ball is a more productive pass rush.

Free agent pass rushers in 2019 could be intriguing for 49ers The biggest question facing the 49ers in 2018 will be their ability to get after opposing quarterbacks after finishing with 30 sacks in 2017, tied for the fifth-fewest in the NFL. They have a mostly untested crew of pass rushers along the edge and will be keeping an eye on the free-agent market next spring.

A slight limp doesn't sound good. Sherman tore his Achilles tendon in November. Do you think he will be ready to fully participate when training camp starts on July 26?
