With a new general manager in John Lynch and a new head coach in Kyle Shanahan, the new 49ers management pulled off a big trade, moving back one spot and picking up a bunch of draft picks in the process.

San Francisco has a ton of holes all over its roster, and will be able to slot Thomas immediately into its defensive line depth chart.
