Perfectly sized for us. I love squatty, athletic DTs.

squatty is a great adjective.
I like this pick-up. Very solid player. Could make for a really good back-up. Reminds me a little of Ian Williams
Jags D-Line (and whole D) is so stacked.
I think he will end up being a real good, quality back-up for years to come.

Love it. He was a star at ND.

I'm not sure he will be a 5T but he could be real good as a 3T.

Signed for next year:

5T- Soloman Thomas / Arik Armstead
NT- Earl Mitchell / DJ Jones
3T- Deforest Buckner / Sheldon Day
LEO- Ronald Blair / Elvis Dumervil

I like it.

Free agents:

Tank Carradine
Leger Douzable
Aaron Lynch
Datone Jones

I'm not sure any of those 4 are brought back.

I don't see Armstead and Dumvervil being on the team next year

Don't see why AA isn't?

We save zero money by cutting him ...you talking about trading him? I feel like his worth is really next to nothing coming off another season on IR and he will be in his last yr of his contract....Seems like this coaching staff loves DL depth as well.



I agree with you on Elvis, we can save around $3 million letting him go...hopefully LEO or even a quick SAM edge rusher will be added to the mix in the off season.

Man, whiffing on a 1st rounder is costly.
nice

Can this guy take Mitchell's spot??

I think so, but a rotation would be better. I like Mitchell along with Douzable, I think the 49ers are getting their D-line in order.

Man I remember talks of Sheldon Day in the 2nd to 3rd rounds, must've fell due to his height.

Meh Mitchell was and is a underwhelming signing imo. I hope we move on from him after the season. Douzable/Mitchell can fight it out for one spot.

Yeah I think I had day in one of my mocks but I thought he was a late 2nd rd pick...shows what I know

Sounds like a lot of jags fans think he's gonna be legit
New #49ers DT Sheldon Day has an overall PFF grade of 78.6.

His snaps (125) don't qualify for a rank, but for context that's Justin Ellis/Tyeler Davison territory. Corey Peters is at 80.1.

Finished 2016 with a 71.3 grade.

Like that write-up
Any chance this dude kicks Arik Bumstead off the roster?

Day is a one gap penetrator, not a two gapping NT. Don't think they are getting rid of Mitchell.
