  • anyone who says he will have off the field issues is ridiculous. he never had problems at alabama, and the incedent where he got sent home was way too harsh

  • Niners got a tackling machinebeast w/ the pickup of Foster…I wanted my Colts to get him soooooo frikn bad…but nah we got a finesse player who doesnt tackle well…grrrrrr…anyway..yea..Niners did just fine here with Foster…looks like another Patrick Willis for them

  • The move from #2 to #3 was just pure genius. They still got the player they wanted while gaining a 3rd rounder, which they used with their 2nd rounder to move up to grab Foster. I wish they had a 2nd rounder, because I think there is still some serious talent up on the board but I’m not heartbroken. The good news is that the 3rd rounder they gave up was next year’s so they have the 66th and 67th picks. I’m hoping they grab Cooper Kupp with one of those picks and a QB, whether its Webb or Peterman, with the other. If Teez Tabor is there, I wouldn’t mind him either.

    Deforest Buckner, Arik Armstead, Earl Mitchell and Solomon Thomas makes one hell of a front four. Bowman, Foster and Lynch as the linebackers. This is going to be a solid defense. All they need is a shut down corner since they released Brock. I would even take a flier on Justin Gilbert, who is still unsigned. The talent is there, but is the fire. I think a coach like Shanahan can really get him going.

  • Foster, Lynch, Thomas, Buckner, Armstead, and Bowman! that defense is looking mighty tough! Just need to get some DBs and this team will be on it’s way to greatness again.
