NFL: San Francisco 49ers-Training Camp Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Reuben Foster was a standout LB at Alabama and he was one of the most highly touted players coming out of college. Some issues dropped him in the 1st round and the 49ers moved back in the 1st round to pick him. Now healthy and in his 1st training camp, Foster is standing out. He’s playing with the 3rd team defense and made his 3rd interception since Friday. The 49ers are going to make Foster work to get a starting job and as of now, he is playing very well. People are excited to see if he wins the starting job and excited to see him next to NaVorro Bowman. Their pairing could give the 49ers one of the best linebacker corps in the league if Reuben lives up to his potential.

Marquise Goodwin is starring in training camp as well. He had another 60 yard touchdown on Monday on a pass from Hoyer after having a 60 yard TD on Sunday. He has great speed and he has been working on his route running. Defenses will have to respect his speed, which can leave Goodwin open on other routes. Kyle Shanahan is great at getting players open in his offense and Goodwin could benefit the most.

The 49ers are having early injury issues in training camp. They have 3 injured safeties after Jaquiski Tartt went down with a rib injury on Monday. Jimmie Ward went down last week with a strained hamstring and Eric Reid rolled his ankle on Sunday. Other players have been able to take the available reps and Chanceller James has taken advantage of the opportunity. The 49ers could make free agent signings or move cornerbacks to safety while they wait for the 3 safeties to return.
