A former Alabama star linebacker was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Friday.

As Foster slipped from a potential top pick to the end of the first round, the 49ers scooped him up and immediately inserted him as a starter at linebacker.

Foster was the second of two first-round picks (No. 31 overall) by the 49ers in last year's draft and started 10 games while registering 72 combined tackles and a pass defensed.

Foster is coming off his rookie season in the National Football League, having been limited to 10 games.
