Video: Stanford DL/Edge Solomon Thomas Sack Compilation Highlights

In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to the top edge-rushers in the 2017 draft class, I am currently putting together as many sack compilation videos as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Pittsburgh Steelers might select in the first two rounds. While I won’t be able to track down every career college sack for every top player that I highlight in this series, I should be able to find a good majority of them for you to examine.

In this compilation video, we’ll look at Stanford defensive lineman/edge rusher Solomon Thomas and it’s a perfect time to do so with Josh Carney posting his profile of him earlier in the day.

Thomas is an interesting player as some believe he might could drop some weight and fit as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense while others firmly believe he’s best suited to play in a 4-3 front. Regardless, he is a very fun player to watch and one who will likely be drafted somewhere in the first round.

Thomas registered 11.5 total sacks in the 27 games that he played in at Stanford dating back to 2015. While I was unable to track down all his sacks, I did manage to find 9 of them.

Please note that a few of the quarterback take-downs in this video went down as half-sacks and in fact, he had five of those, according to his game stats. Several are included in this video and shouldn’t be hard to identify.

Please notice the quality of each sack in addition the amount of time from snap to tackle and feel free to comment on Thomas’ sack compilation below.

Previous Sack Compilation Highlights

  • Jesse Hernandez

    How is he projected as an edge rusher or olb?

  • Ike Evans

    Im a really big fan…dont think hes a fit for us but i think hes a stud for a 4-3 team

  • Douglas Andrews

    Maybe a good situational nickel pass rusher. Seems like he can contribute in a larger role as a DT in a 4-3

  • Spencer Krick

    His first step is inconsistent, but man, when he’s on all cylinders there’s no stopping him. I don’t think he’s at his ceiling yet.

  • Luke

    I think he’s a poor mans Aaron Donald. Great motor and ability on the inside I just don’t see him as a fit on our defense.

  • Tedium cha

    The first sack compilation where my eyes popped. This dude is a beast and any team will be instantly better with him there.

  • SFIC

    I’ve said it for months now. This is the best player in the draft. I would play him outside In base and inside in sub packages. He’s by far most productive playing inside. Love this guy. Very similar to Aaron Donald.

  • Kevin Reich

    Finds the player with the ball even in traffic and spinning around. Great motor from highlights.

  • popsiclesticks

    Hope they make one for Malik McDowell…I think he’d have the same effect.

  • Zach Bolen

    Probably a weight on frame thing.

  • Coming up the middle, he looks like Tom Brady’s worse nightmare.
