Kentavius Street, EDGE
Kentavius Street was a toolsy prospect coming out of college last year and I am sure that the 49ers had every intention of letting him get healthy in 2018 and then bringing him to the lineup as a rotational player in 2019.
However, as I mentioned above the 49ers are now stacked on the EDGE with Bosa and Ford as the clear starters and with everyone else battling it out for rotational snaps.
If the 49ers don’t want Blair, great the Titans will take him. However, if they want to take the bird in the hand vs the two in the bush that is fine too. While Blair is a familiar prospect and a known commodity, Street is still a wildcard.
With a strong upper body and better than average speed at the combine, it isn’t crazy to think that Street could make his way onto the field often as a hybrid EDGE/DT. For the Titans specifically I am thinking about a base DE in a 4-man line who kicks inside on passing downs.
At nearly 300 lb. Street has the athletic traits to be a fast defensive tackle or a powerful defensive end if used correctly. Mike Vrabel and Dean Pees know quite a bit about how to use these hybrid players and whoever is the odd man out at the EDGE position for the 49ers should expect to get a call from the Tennessee Titans.
