(Rotoworld) 49ers LT Joe​ Staley praised new teammate DE Dee Ford.

Analysis: 49ers brass asked Staley for a scouting report before finalizing the trade, and the left tackle let them know Ford has one of the best first steps in the league. "It’s super unique," Staley said. "Especially in today’s game, it’s what separates a lot of the great pass rushers from the guys that are average." Staley added he was convinced Ford was offsides when he beat him for a sack Week 3 of last season, but when he watched the tape, he realized the defender simply got off the ball that quickly. Adding Ford, who has 25 sacks in his last 37 games, will go a long way to solving the 49ers' pass-rushing woes, but they still could use some help. Assuming they do not trade down, they will likely get that help with the No. 2 overall pick.
