Solomon Thomas, another 1st round DL for 9ers, but he fits new scheme. 9ers got their guy and jacked 3 extra picks.

Another defensive END.

Different defense bro.

His not going to play end, he's going to be a DT and work primarily inside.

How much of that did he do at Stanford?

+1...big time! Plus the haul they got to move back ONE spot and still get the guy they wanted.

So they needed to redraft the position they used their two previous first round picks on or he will play with and compliment the past two first round picks?

DE in a 3-4 and DE in a 4-3 are two different positions. Buckner and Armstead came in as 3-4 DE's. Thomas comes in as a 4-3 DE and a DT in nickel, different players.

Thomas played in a 3-4 at Stanford, tasked with disrupting opposing offenses from the interior against guards, much like Armstead and Buckner during their college careers at Oregon. Thomas is redundant

I think we've been saying that each year for the past 3 years bro

He played nose tackle, 3 technique, 5 technique....etc. He's versatile and explosive. Can line him up all over based on matchup advantages.
he better get #90 from Mitchell..
How is this strategic? We have holes at the skill positions that we continue to ignore each year

He's better than both of them.
