by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taumoepenu was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

49ers' Pita Taumoepenu: Inactive for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

49ers' Pita Taumoepenu: Headed to San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers selected Taumoepenu in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 202nd overall.

This looks like a pure depth grab here with San Francisco already loaded along the front four. That said, Taumoepenu has some athleticism, notching a 4.67 in the 40-yard dash. He is undersized, even at defensive end, checking in at 6-foot-1 and just 243 pounds. His lack of size coupled with San Francisco's depth up front means that it could be awhile before Taumoepenu sees the field.
