Mike Rumph was supposed to be a starting cornerback for a long time for the 49ers. Especially considering that he came out of the University of Miami, a school that was known for producing outstanding players.
Rumph's career with the 49ers was interrupted by injuries. He did show some promise in his second season, but after that season he was plagued by injuries, only participating in five total games from season three to season four with the 49ers.
He then signed with Washington for his fifth season, but managed to appear in just seven games.
In his second season, Rumph got the bulk of his statistics with the 49ers, where he contributed in 15 games. He totaled two sacks, three interceptions, seven passes defended, forced a fumble, and 62 tackles.
In the 36 games, he appeared in with the 49ers, Rumph recorded 105 tackles, two forced fumbles, two sacks, and three interceptions.
If Rumph could have stayed healthy, he may not have been able to contribute more than he did as a 49er.
