If the 49ers had lightsabers

This is not the west coast offense you’re looking for

May 4th has unofficially been known as “Star Wars” Day and if you get a chance it’s tradition to watch the original trilogy or at least one of the first three movies. As part of promotion for the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, the 49ers had R2-D2 making picks in the draft to mixed reactions.

Well, the promoting doesn’t stop there as the 49ers celebrated Star Wars day by handing players lightsabers and letting them invoke the teachings of Obi Wan Kenobi. This, as you might imagine leads to some pretty awesome results:

Definitely not as clumsy and random as a blaster. A much more elegant showing for a more civilized era.

Which player do you think wields the lightsaber the best?
