The 49ers have addressed their pass-rushing needs

The San Francisco 49ers have added some serious potential to their edge rushing need as they’ve selected N.C. State defensive end Kentavius Street with their fourth round pick, No. 128 overall.

The big news on this pick is that Street suffered a torn ACL in April at his Pro Day. He is unlikely to play this year, so Team ACL appears to be back.

The 49ers needed serious help with their pass rush. Outside of DeForest Buckner, the defensive line just couldn’t get to the quarterback quick enough. Solomon Thomas is expected to kick inside on passing downs and the release of Elvis Dumervil has left a huge need for someone to go get the quarterback.

Street will offer some help, but he is a big guy who will compete for work at the big end role. Arik Armstead is handling that role in the base defense heading into the 2018 season, with Solomon Thomas moving over in sub-packages.
