The 49ers traded up with the Seahawks to take Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster with the 31st pick in the draft.
Greg Cosell -- your thoughts on the selection?
"I think Foster was the second best prospect in this draft behind (Myles) Garrett," Cosell said on KNBR 680 this week. There's nothing not to like. In fact, I do an excel spreadsheet -- I do strengths, weaknesses, transition -- I had nothing under weaknesses.
"As a player on the field -- and I know there's other issues and that's probably why he dropped; I know there's some injury concerns and perhaps some other things -- but I think he's a high-level linebacker prospect. He's got all the athletic and movement traits that you look for."
The 49ers, who took Solomon Thomas No. 3 overall, considered Foster one of the three best prospects.
Foster tore the labrum in his right shoulder against Washington and underwent shoulder surgery in February.
During his introductory press conference last Friday, the Butkus Award winner said he is on pace to be fully cleared for football activity by the time the 49ers open training camp in late July
"He's a physical player, he's a warrior," Cosell added. "There's not really a weakness physically and athletically and competitively in his game."
