With the 3rd pick in the NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers select Solomon Thomas. This is the 3rd Defensive end taken from the Pac-12 in the first round for the 49ers in their last three drafts. Solomon Thomas should be a great addition to the 49ers, who had an atrocious run defense these past few seasons. Solomon Thomas is a defensive end from Stanford who was a key piece in Stanford’s success last season. Thomas will look to translate his success in college to the NFL for the 49ers. Thomas is a very solid player and can potentially be a top tier defensive end for years to come!
