49ers' Solomon Thomas: Not moved during draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was not traded prior or during the 2019 NFL Draft, despite reports that such trade talks occurred.

It should come as no surprise that the 49ers were looking to move on from Thomas following the trade for Dee Ford and the drafting of No. 2 overall pick Nick Bosa. The team began deploying Thomas as an interior lineman in the later stages of the 2018 season after he struggled generating pressure on the quarterback while lined up as a defensive end. This strategy could be the reason the Niners chose not to move Thomas, as he could end up moving to defensive tackle permanently. Fellow first-round pick Arik Armstead also remains on the active roster, which could create a competition at a new position in camp for both failed outside pass rushers.

49ers' Solomon Thomas: Third year will be key for lineman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh hopes that new defensive line coach Kris Kocurek can take Thomas' game to the next level in 2019, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Thomas started all 16 games for the 49ers in his sophomore campaign, finishing with 31 tackles (24 solo), a sack and three tackles for a loss. The 22-year-old showed some improvement in terms of being a disruptive backfield presence playing both on the outside and the interior of the defensive line, but his statistics were underwhelming for a player taken third overall in the 2017 draft. The team described Kocurek's addition as "an opportunity they needed to take advantage of," and Thomas' development and usage next season will be one of the new coach's primary tasks this offseason. Until we see an actual improvement in Thomas' pass-rush numbers, it will be tough to justify IDP relevance given the lackluster stats the lineman has posted over his first two seasons.

49ers' Solomon Thomas: Tallies first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas had three solo tackles and his first sack of the season in Thursday's 34-3 win over Oakland.

Thomas has started seven of nine games this season but sees a limited snap count defensively, which is illustrated by his season total of 17 tackles (14 solo). The 22-year-old's limited role and inconsistent production when on the field makes him an unattractive option for IDP purposes.

49ers' Solomon Thomas: Healthy to enter Week 5

Thomas is not listed on the 49ers' injury report Thursday.

Thomas suffered a shoulder injury during San Francisco's Week 4 loss to the Chargers, but has not been listed on the team's injury report this week. There's no reason to believe that Thomas is in any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

49ers' Solomon Thomas: Shoulder injury not believed to be serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to the Chargers but is expected to be okay moving forward, Joe Fann of the team's official site reports.

Although the shoulder injury is not believed to be serious, Thomas' situation is something to monitor until he proves he's at 100 percent. Should the big man practice in full at any point this week it would likely simmer concerns.
