San Francisco 49ers players are enjoying some time off before the team reports to training camp on July 25. Defensive lineman Solomon Thomas is using some of the time to prepare for his sophomore NFL season.

The third-overall pick in last year's draft stopped by the A+D1 Sports training facility in Texas to work out with trainers. Defensive line specialist Brandon Jordan posted video from some of Thomas' workout.


"I'm very confident in myself," Thomas recently told NBC Sports Bay Area. "I'm very confident I'll become the player that, you know, the reason I was drafted No. 3 in the draft. I feel like that's coming for me and I'm working my butt off for it, and I'm putting all my effort into that. That's my main focus in life right now."

Thomas registered 41 combined tackles, three sacks, three quarterback hits, and 18 pressures in 14 game appearances and 12 starts during his rookie campaign, according to Pro Football Focus. While Thomas had one of the worst pressure rates among defensive linemen last year, 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh believes he can still be an effective pass rusher.

"Solomon is really starting to understand who he is as a pass rusher and he's starting to work that," Saleh said in May. "And you can see it come into fruition with him."
