Moments before the 49ers’ fifth-round pick today, CEO Jed York tweeted out a clue: “Jimmy T is having his way in this draft.” That would be 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. And San Francisco’s selection was Alabama defensive tackle…Extra Point:
Jim Tomsula is a incredible teacher and he will have plenty of raw and keen students to get to work on after this draft. The 49ers have clearly made the front 7 an emphasis of the draft - and I take this as a signal to their philosophy to defeating teams like Seattle and St. Louis who have dynamic quarterbacks.
