I think Buckner and Thomas end up starting with Armstead filling in all over the place.

I understand this but "how I want" is the absolute wrong approach. It should be "what is best". If we drafted DL the last 2-3 years and signed a good dl man, it would only behove me to focus on other positions of need like.......CB. WR, etc

Is it at least possible to consider the concept that they drafted a defensive lineman and did what is best for the team?
Solomon at 1t/3t and buckner 3t in sub package...interior QB terrorizers.

the double 3t package is going to be nasty.

Yeah when your passing game is yet again civilian and you can't stop the pass in a time machine!

At the detriment of not filling wholes? Whatever happened to allowing your draft picks to develop?

People having a damn melt down like this is the end of the draft. ITS 1 PICK GUYS! The draft is not over.

You are so naive.... clearly the new management is picking nothing but defensive lineman from here on out. I don't even think they considered any other position! 0-16

Worst run defense in the history of the 49ers. I think DL was a major need as well. You don't need just 1 or 2 guys. Thomas complements what Buckner does. You might be upset now, you won't be once you see Thomas start taking QB's down.

Phoenix whats your starting line up on d-line

Im with you Phoenix.

5T - Buckner
NT - Mitchell
3T - Thomas/Armstead
Leo - Lynch/Armstead

I'm sure Shanahan has a plan for the offense as well. This is a deep draft and they just added two more picks. I imagine one of those will be used to add a high quality RB prospect such as Kareem Hunt. They will likely add a QB somewhere along the way as well and more overall weapons in general.

But in anycase, this is not a 1 or 2 year rebuild process, its going to take time but they kicked off well with an excellent prospect that has All Pro upside IMO.

Ok well are you aware that this has been a 3 year rebuilding process? As a contributing fan I feel it's unfair to allow the organization to make silly project draft picks in the first round and be allowed to hind in the figurative shell of "rebuilding process".

Did no one tell Shanny and Lynch they had holes in their roster? If only they had known that!

As expected, new DE Solomon Thomas says he has been told he will play role similar to Seattle's Michael Bennett for the Niners.

There's a little thing called sub packages and DL rotation. Teams that excel in this area usually have kick ass defense's. It's never a bad thing to have an abundance good DL in the NFL. Stopping the run and collapsing the pocket is paramount to winning in this league.

I dig what you are saying... especially considering that Buckner for sure and probably Solomon are credible playing inside in pass rushing situations.
Bust. Thanks lynch
