My big thing with Saleh is will he REALLY run nickel up to 70% of the time now; now that he has the edge rushers. It's been almost 50/50 up to now.

The funny thing is we could probably run our nickel defense now 100% and be perfectly fine against the run and esp. good against the pass.

It's tough to say how Saleh will manage his personnel groupings because this is the best caliber of edge rushers he's had. What I do know is the 49ers wouldn't have used precious draft capital and cap space to upgrade the pass rush if the intent wasn't to use it. The team identified their pass rush as a weakness and they used alot of resources to fix it. I'd imagine they will be using their nickel packages quite a bit.

Well said!

Dee Ford text me and asked that I bump his thread. Ever since Nicky got drafted he's felt like a red headed step child ( I apologize to all red headed step children around the world for my un-pc remarks.)

There's gonna be some good competition between him, Bosa, and Buckner for the most sacks. I have the feeling that Dee won't let us overlook him.

I'm hoping Pita can get some sacks when Dee Ford and Bosa take a break. I'm rooting for him, but the odds are against him making the team unfortunately.
Between this guy and Boss Bosa, we have two edge guys with pretty ridiculous get off speed.

Do you forget about Solomon Thomas because he is a great tackle them for RB.

If solomon can develop, then as another poster said in another thread, this will become the fearsom foursome 2.0

He may not have a double team all year, and interior pass rush was his calling card in college... who knows, maybe he has a "Dee Ford" type season and really turns the corner. Even if he's only serviceable, we should have an outstanding run & pass defense at the line of scrimmage.

well we finally have proper edges so its nice to have solomon finally kick inside at his natural position.
We got 2 top 5-10 best at their position imo (yes I rank jimmy g 9th with his small sample size) for 2 second rounders. That's ridiculous. Best value in the nfl 2 years in a row.....but yeah let's give Lynch grief about a few players that had tragedy in their lives (fatal attraction and ST playing out of position and grieving over the loss of his sister. Still a bad pick but will not be as bad as people make it out to be)

Tell him not to worry. This thread should be bumped regularly come regular season, and for good reasons I hope.
Anyone remember or know of the Super Bowl where Bob Griese lost like 26 or more yards on a sack? I could see this happening to RW or some other scrambling QB.
Pumped to watch this guy and Bosa off the edges . If the secondary can get their s**t together this D could be scary

Dude- we got a trifecta. Two off the edge and one up the middle...
