John Lynch concerned about 49ers' top pick Thomas

On April 27, the 49ers selected Solomon Thomas with the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

As of Thursday afternoon, he remains unsigned.

49ers general manager John Lynch addressed the media on Thursday and was asked about the defensive lineman's status.

Thomas missed most of the 49ers' offseason program because NFL rules stipulate that rookies who have not completed their undergraduate degrees are ineligible to join on a full-time basis until after their schools' final classes of the spring semester.

Stanford's late schedule put Thomas a little behind schedule.

“We have our iPads, so I’ll be able to watch film from that,” Thomas said in mid-May. “I talk to Josh (Garnett) quite a bit, and he’ll give me advice on how to go through this process – how to stay in touch, just keep learning along the way and keep progressing along the way.”

Reuben Foster will be ready when pads go on at 49ers training camp

UPDATE (12:40pm on Thursday) -- The 49ers posted the following video to Twitter:

***

Reuben Foster is ready to rock and roll.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided an update on the rookie linebacker on Thursday:

According to Shanahan, no players will be on the PUP or NFI when camp opens.

As NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco wrote in mid-June:

Foster, the No. 31 overall pick in the draft, was the subject of national reports that he would require another surgery and could miss his entire rookie season. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported, citing a “well-placed source,” that Foster’s surgery “didn’t take.”

After the 49ers drafted him, Foster disputed the reports.

“That’s not accurate at all,” Foster said in April. “I’m fine. I’m on schedule.”

Foster sustained the tear of the labrum in his right shoulder during Alabama’s national semifinal game against Washington. He played in the championship game against Clemson with the injury.

He underwent surgery on his rotator cuff that forced him to sit out drills at the NFL scouting combine in February. Foster was sent home from Indianapolis after an argument with a hospital worker while he was waiting to undergo a physical.

The 49ers' first preseason game is in Kansas City on Friday, Aug. 11.

Warriors invite player with last name Cleveland to training camp

The Warriors made a move on Thursday.

Golden State agreed to terms on a training camp invite with Antonius Cleveland, NBC Sports Bay Area has learned.

As a senior at Southeast Missouri State last year, Cleveland averaged 16.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

He shot over 54 percent from the field and over 38 percent from 3-point territory (28 for 73).

The 6'6" guard played for the Portland Trail Blazers during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Over six games, he averaged 5.8 points.

If Cleveland doesn't nab the 15th roster spot with Golden State, he could end up with the Santa Cruz Warriors as an affiliate player.

ESPN's Ian Begley first reported Cleveland's deal with the Warriors.
