Where Thomas is now.
For someone who was the 3rd overall pick, Thomas has largely been forgotten about by most NFL fans outside of Northern California. He’s started 25 of 32 games over the first two seasons of his career but has made little positive impact for the San Francisco defense. According to his pre-draft scouting report, he was more pro-ready than Myles Garrett, but while Garrett has started to mature and develop, Thomas has just four sacks over his first two seasons.
He was such a disappointment that the 49ers didn’t hesitate to draft another defensive end 2nd overall in Nick Bosa in 2019. They also traded for Dee Ford, likely making Thomas a backup just two years after going 3rd overall.
