New Niner Quinton Dial

I knew he was not that huge in the upper body but an offseason with uwe and he will get right. He has the frame to build significant mass

I think Dial can turn into a rotational NT who can eventually become a starter. He was recruited to Alabama, the #1 program in the country. He backed up Jesse Williams his whole college career. Jesse Williams fell in the draft because his Knees are shot, and teams did not think he could play long term in the NFL.

Dial does not have the wear and tear of a starter in college and the pros, if he can get his technique down from Tomosulu he will be a great pick for the 5th round.

I saw this guy play a few snaps yesterday and he was always on the ground. He needs to get low and stay on his feet. They ran right at him.

PFF indicates that Dial has played 15 snaps in two games.

They rank him as average on the whole, which given his lack of practice time is not so bad.
I didn't see him do anything for us but it did not appear that he hurt us. But each snap gives him more exposure and it give Tomsula more information on how to work with him. Hopefully something good comes out of this experiment.

Yep, I saw that too. He needs a lot of work on his leverage. At one point on two straight plays he got dropped on his face before the back even hit the line. I don't think he'll be anywhere close to contributing until he goes through a full offseason.

he is healthy, he does not hurt us and given our razor thin depth on the line. i think that is more than ok with me, esp as you said with so little practice time he has had

Justin Smith looked bigger than him on the sideline.

Yeah, I don't think he is nearly as big as everyone says. He certainly doesn't look 350. Dorsey also looks way bigger to me.
But but some of you thought he was the second coming of Gilbert Brown. Lol

Nope. I only hoped he could eventually become a Gilbert Brown. Totally unrealistic to expect him to be that dominant in the run game out of the gate with the limited amount of practice he has gotten.

Read a comment elsewhere that he was being pushed off of the ball.

the suddenness of a sloth. the guy is bordering on too big. hopefully, he gets quicker when he figures out what he's doing.
