NFL: San Francisco 49ers-Training Camp
Reuben Foster: worth every penny.

Reuben Foster is about to make 30 NFL teams regret not drafting him in the first round of the 2017 Draft. The San Francisco rookie linebacker has already made a big impression by picking off three passes in practice. Is he healthy? Yup. Can he run like a deer? Yup! Will be in the Pro Bowl any time soon? YUP!!!

Because the NFL are a bunch of greedy so-and-so’s, we cannot imbed their videos. However, here are the links of Reuben doing his thang.

Interception #1 was on a tipped pass. Nothing dramatic but he is doing what he was taught. If it was a game, he likely would have taken it to the house.

Interception #2 was a nice read on a wide receiver slant. This was likely another pick-6. The players you see chasing him were on the sidelines.

Interception #3 was Foster playing the middle, right where he is supposed to be.

The Niners have to be thrilled with the first round pick.
