49ers selected Alabama ILB Reuben Foster with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
The 49ers were said to be considering Foster as high as No. 2 overall, and he was expected to be a top-of-the-round pick but medical and off-field concerns put Foster in a draft-night slide. Foster (6’0/229) earned the 2016 Butkus Award as college football’s top linebacker, wrapping his four-year career with 24 tackles for loss and eight sacks across 24 starts. He never forced a single turnover at Alabama, but did lead the nation in PFF College’s run-stop percentage last year and showed an ability to cover tight ends and tailbacks on tape. A vicious hitter with missile-like range, Foster offers All-Pro potential if he can stay healthy and keep his head on straight. He has dealt with numerous stingers/concussions, is currently rehabbing a torn rotator cuff, and got kicked out of the Combine for arguing with a hospital worker after failing a drug test. He also managed a 9 on the Wonderlic. While his ceiling is high, Foster also has a low NFL floor. Apr 27 - 11:41 PM
