San Francisco 49ers Draft G Brandon Thomas

Posted May 9, 2014

The San Francisco 49ers selected Clemson guard Brandon Thomas with the 100th selection in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.


The San Francisco 49ers selected Clemson guard Brandon Thomas with the 100th selection in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-3, 317-pound guard suffered a torn ACL during a pre-draft workout. Many in the media expect Thomas to be on the team’s Physically Unable to Perform list in 2014.

Here's the Clemson lineman’s scouting report courtesy of NFL.com:

Good size with very long arms and big hands. Quick out of his stance. Knee bender with good balance and body control. Solid base. Places his hands inside and can pop and recoil. Strong-handed puncher with good grip strength once he latches on. Athletic, efficient mover. Light on his feet to step to the second level or pull. Can maneuver and throw his hips in the hole. Climbs to the second level. Three-year starter who played tackle (two-time first-team All-ACC at LT). Held his own against Jadeveon Clowney without help.
