Reuben Foster had an eventful path to the NFL Draft for all the wrong reasons. A fight with hospital staffers at the NFL Combine and a diluted urine sample deep-sixed his chances to become a top 5 pick
This is why the 49ers got a steal when he dropped to them at number 31.
Foster is without a doubt the best inside linebacker to come into the NFL in three years. He moves sideline-to-sideline with ease and has a rare killer instinct that only a few men have brought to the field.
Stats don’t do the beauty of his game justice. The highlights that go back to college are below. They tell the real story about how valuable this kid will be.
In short, Foster is a both a leader and a killer and as he gets older he will make better decisions with how he conducts himself away from football.
