With the 31st Pick Of The 2017 NFL Draft, The San Francisco 49ers select Rueben Foster, Middle Linebacker from University Of Alabama At Tuscaloosa. Foster, who was rated the best MLB in the draft, slides down to the 31st pick of the first round. The 49ers traded up to get who they hope will be the Patrick Willis replacement that they’ve needed for so long. Bowman and Foster will make a dirty pair of MLBs in their dynamic 3-4 scheme. The 49ers will look to rebuild their defense to return to their 2012 defensive dominance, which started at the MLB position. We can blame Foster’s fall to his recent shoulder injury and a dilluted drug test at the combine.
