This offseason, John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan overturned over half of the 49ers roster. They have added 50 players of the current 90 on the roster. The overhaul seems to have made the roster better on paper. We will not know if that is the case until the season gets underway. But with lengthy contracts, both John and Kyle have time on their hands to rebuild the way they want.

The last GM drafted players that came out of college injured and couldn’t get on the field, players with issues, or players that just weren’t good enough. Lynch and Shanahan seem to be getting players that have good character and good ability. One of the reasons KD Cannon was apparently cut this past weekend was because of his attitude during rookie minicamp. Other players that have been cut weren’t good for Kyle’s system. John and Kyle are quickly working on finding the talent that can help this team rebound. The player signings show that John and Kyle had a plan and vision when they signed.

One of the players that will be a big part of the rebuild, Reuben Foster, is recovering from a shoulder injury that seemed to have an effect on his drop in the draft. The 49ers were a team that had no issue with his injury because they were quick to trade up to draft him. The medical staff had no issues with his injury being a long term concern, according to John Lynch. Last week, Kyle said that the worst case scenario for Foster was that he could miss his rookie season. John Lynch spoke on Tuesday and said that Foster should be a “full go” for training camp. That and the return of NaVorro Bowman is good news for the 49ers heading into a new era.
