49ers grab Reuben Foster at 31st overall

The San Francisco 49ers traded up with the Seattle Seahawks and selected Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster with the 31st overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

What It Means:

Medical and off-field concerns made Foster slip to the end of the first round, but after making some noise about drafting him second overall, the 49ers made their move on Foster at 31st. The 2016 Butkus Award winner failed a drug test and was kicked out of the Combine for arguing with a worker from the local hospital, but he still went in the first round. He has the ability to be a very good linebacker at the NFL level if he can remain healthy and stay out of trouble.

Foster recorded 24 tackles for a loss and eight sacks across 24 starts during his college tenure. He never forced a fumble at Alabama, but he stands to be a run-stopping force in the NFL.
