Reuben Foster, ILB, Bama

He's an absolute beast and I can't believe there isn't already a thread for him. If the Brown take Garrett with the first pick I think the next best course of action is to trade back a little and grab Foster. He plays like an animal that just wants to hurt everyone else on the field, something that this defense is sorely lacking at the moment. He hits harder then almost anyone I've seen at the collegiate level. He displays excellent play recognition and diagnosis, always seeming to be where the ball carrier is headed. On top of that he has sideline to sideline speed that would make Willis proud. Probably needs to work a little on his pass coverage because with the supporting cast at Alabama he was never in a situation where he really needed to shine in that department. Honestly one of the best linebackers to come out in a while and imo an easy top 5 talent in this class. Him and Bowman would be shades of the Pwilliy/Healthy Bow .

Rare hitter. He's one of those guys who seems as interested in delivering pain as making the tackle.
Stud!!! I'm all on him Or his teammate Allen. This is the perfect ILB we need! We can't stop the run, & I think it's time to start looking for Bowman's replacement.
I would rather draft Foster over Garrett. He has that motor that stands out on the tape.
if we have the 2nd pick in the next draft and kizer, that North Carolina QB, and Watson all come out, there's going to be some quarterback hungry teams. I say that we trade down, get an extra first for next year and select this guy.
Nice 15 yard penalty on the first gif.

(don't yell at me, I'm not one who made those stupid new "please don't sue us" roughing the whomever rules)

LOL NO WAY! clean hit!!! shoulder hit too!
Bowman, Ray Ray and Foster would make an excellent LB core.

He's an obvious fit and I don't think many people would be upset if the Niners traded down to take him. Might have to trade up too much to go that way.
Who's trading up? We need impact players more than anyone else and if we don't think any of the players sitting there at 2 are that impact player why would a team give up picks to move up?

Damn there will be some legit players at the top of the draft.....don't f**k it up Baalke

Either Garrett or Allen will be there when we pick second overall. I don't think we should trade down.
I would not be ok taking Foster over Garrett if it's a choice between the 2.

This kid better watch it, the more people watch his film the more impressive he gets.. he needs to settle it down before he gets in to the TOP 10!!

That's tough..both would help the niners defense tremendously..but I'm taking Garrett over Foster but not by much..Foster is my 2nd defensive pick behind Garrett..
