The 49ers have signed rookie linebacker Elijah Lee from the Vikings practice squad, according to Ian Rapoport.

I like this signing. Lee was one of my favorite linebackers coming out of college this year. I had the 49ers drafting him in the fifth round of a mock draft I wrote 20 days before the draft.
Lee is a similar athlete to Ray Ray Armstrong. Both are tall, lean weakside linebackers. But I think Lee might better than Armstrong. Armstrong was horrible against the Panthers on Sunday. Horrible in coverage and horrible in run support. We’ve seen enough of Armstrong through the years. I’d like to see the Niners play Lee.
What do you think of this signing?
