3. Chris Foerster, Offensive Line/Run Game Coordinator, San Francisco 49ers

We won't talk about the incident from his past, only what he's doing right now. Chris Foerster seems to have learned from a big mistake made public, and is doing a fantastic job in San Francisco under head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Foerster has been with the organization since 2019 and, after being around the NFL since 1993, could finally get a chance to become something greater than he's been all this time.

Kyle Shanahan is one of the brightest coaches in the league today, and there are a lot of coaches who have tried to emulate what he does well. Some of Shanahan's assistants have gone on to do bigger and better things, which is of course why you'd love to pick from his coaching tree.

On the season, the 49ers' rushing attack ranks 7th in the league after finishing 8th a year ago. San Francisco's offense has been one of the most well-balanced units in the game under Shanahan, and Foerster has been a big part of that.

New Orleans should certainly try and become a run-first team, especially still housing Alvin Kamara and having guys like Jamaal Williams and Kendre Miller on the roster. Regardless of who is in the back field next year, the Saints will function better if they can establish a rushing attack, and Foerster would help that cause in a significant way.
