Dennis Dillon, a writer for the Sporting News, writes the following about Isaac Sopoaga.

Sopoaga was at the team facility even before the offseason program started, lifting weights and watching film. At 6-2, 325 pounds, the fifth-year lineman is a massive, powerful man who is one of the strongest players on the team. He can play both tackle and end but is expected to start at end next season in the 49ers' 3-4 defense.
