Which is nonsense. McDonald is around 283...284. Justin Smith is around 285. Supposedly Carradine is around 280ish right now which is right on target. Unlike some other 3-4 teams, the 49ers don't have supersized DE's.

This means he is near JJ Watt size and he may have that type versatility as well. This guy is going to beast once he gets acclimated

Really looking forward to him getting a few crumbs over the next few weeks!
Working in slowly is so smart - Great move JH.

This guy will beast if he's healthy. Loved watching this dude at FSU. Our Dline for the playoff rush, if healthy, will be ferocious.
When is this guy going to suit up

If this guy pans out, this will have been a defense-defining draft for years to come. Reid is already one of our best defenders, and Lemonier looks like a legit pass rusher. This will give us A LOT of flexibility in terms of re-signing guys.
Going back and reading all of the draft profiles, from the various draft websites, this guy's only negatives were pretty much exactly what Aldon's were "lacks moves with hands, experience, and injury concerns". Once he gets coached up a bit by Tomsula he's going to be murdering the trenches a long side the rest of the d-line.

I never really saw that as a negative with Tank.

Yeah, I guess it was more of a "develop pass rush moves". Either way. Dude's gonna be a beast.
Sweet, Tank will be first to be activated!!

I'm excited about this guy!
