CBS Sports’ Chris Trabasso has named five players on line for the breakout season during a contract year. The Houston Texans put out a defensive end for Charles Ominiho in the fifth round in 2019. On November 2, 2021, he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers for the 2023 sixth round pick.
Omenihu is entering the final year of his start-up deal and is set to earn $2.54 million over the next season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
After stacking seven sacks over the first two seasons, Omenihu didn’t make it to the quarterback in 2021, but he did collect 17 tackles, tackle for a loss, four quarterback hits, and a defensive pass through 15 games with the Texas and 49 players. Omenihu won 1.5 bags in 34 defensive shots during a playoff game in San Francisco against the Dallas Cowboys.
Last season, Omenihu suffered 16 pressures in limited playing time through six games with the Texans, according to Pro Football Focus. That was enough to pique the interest of 49ers general manager John Lynch and sway his way to the Trapasso roster that includes Denver Broncos defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones, Cowboys forgetting back Tony Pollard, Buffalo Bills wide future Jamison Crowder, and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Greg Gaines.
“What’s strange is that after being on the field for nearly 40 shots per game with the Texans, the 49ers’ unique passing player did not play more than 20 shots in a single competition for the remainder of the regular season,” Trapsow wrote. That changed in his first playoff win, when he broke out for six pressures on 27 fast-passing chances across 35 total shots against the Cowboys. Sure, it was just one contest, a fairly big one at that, but Omenihu made a statement to his coaching staff. New – He should have played more than jump in his new language.
“The former Texan star has become more comfortable and productive in dashing passers in each of his first three seasons in the NFL. And in what should be a more prominent role in the 49ers defensive line, I expect a notable breakthrough en route to the extension into the 2023 season for nearly of 6-6 cannons with 36-inch claws attached to his torso.
Those six pressures on the qualifying stage marked the highest level Omenihu’s career has been in a single match. In addition, the defender’s overall Pro Football Focus score (66.6) and the passing score (82.3) last season was also career-high.
“Charles has done a good job,” 49ers defense coordinator DeMeco Ryans said this week. “I think OTA (organised team activities) has been very beneficial for him. He came in the middle of the season (in 2021), so for him to get all the basics, the first day basics of how we play Line D, that was huge for him.
“I’m glad he’s able to put OTAs under his belt. He’d be so much better for us just because he’s, really, a fundamental level in how we do things now.”
Pro Football Focus has selected the top three players of all 32 NFL teams as the league enters the 2022 season. Many could argue that Deebo Samuel, the all-working wide receiver, had the biggest impact on the success of the San Francisco 49ers last season. However, he was not among the team’s top three. The Analytics website considered him and linebacker Fred Warner, though. “The fact that neither Warner nor Samuel broke the roster speaks volumes for the quality of talent on the San Francisco roster,” wrote analyst Ben Linsey. Linsey’s top three in 49ers: tackle Trent Williams, defensive end Nick Bosa, and tight end George Kettle. Williams 97.8 overall Pro
NFL analyst Adam Rank was kind to the jokes and sarcasm stemming from his prediction of three wins for the San Francisco 49ers in 2019. Perhaps it’s time to get over that, no matter how much fun The Faithful had with her. For some, this can be a challenge. The rank is well aware of this. Rank hasn’t released his record predictions for the upcoming 49ers season yet. However, he did take a detailed look at the team, as he does annually with every NFL team. There’s a lot to unpack from the “State of 2022 San Francisco 49ers” feature.
With a number of free agents leaving elsewhere, the San Francisco 49ers faced some major roster turnover ahead of the 2022 NFL season. However, turnover isn’t necessarily detrimental to the roster, as it provides opportunities for players to potentially break through, especially younger players heading into their third and fourth seasons.
