Corey Lemonier

DE/LB, Auburn

Coming out in 2013, Corey Lemonier was one of my favorite sleepers at the rush linebacker/defensive end spot. The 49ers, as has become typical in recent years, cashed in on the fall of a really talented player. With Aldon Smith’s current situation, Lemonier will see some extra time. he was pushed into a bigger role last season than the 49ers had envisioned, but he should be ready in year two make significant improvements and have a much bigger role in the Niners’ stacked defense.
