And so the San Francisco 49ers wrap up their draft in the seventh round by selecting a defensive tackle, Ricky Jean-Francois out of LSU.  He's a guy I know nothing about so let's take a look at a scouting reports.  First off, ESPN rated him 9th among defensive tackles (combining NTs and DTs).  As for the reports, here's what Draft Countdown has to say:

Strengths: Good athlete...Long arms and big hands...Very quick...Explosive and fires off the snap...Good strength...Gets a lot of penetration...Decent instincts and awareness...Versatile...Good special teamer...Big  upside.

Weaknesses: Average size...Does not always use proper leverage...An inconsistent motor...Was not a great student...Durability is a concern...Maturity might be an issue...Wasn't very productive...Relatively inexperienced.

After the jump, we've got some highlights of RJF.
