Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Lions are hosting Alabama LB Reuben Foster for a visit on Friday.
Foster has been busy in recent weeks. He has visited with the Colts, Saints, Bengals, Lions, Titans, Ravens, Chiefs and Jaguars and reportedly a meeting lined up with the Raiders before he had to cancel it.
Foster is considered by many to not only be the best linebacker in this year’s draft class, but also one of the top defensive players overall.
According to Ian Rapoport, Foster has had his shoulder rechecked after the incident that took place at the Combine and he has full range of motion. Rapoport adds that Foster would have been at medical re-checks, regardless but he also needs to complete the full medical evaluation.
At the combine, Foster was sent home after he got into a heated altercation with a hospital worker. Foster was waiting for an extended period for his “pre-exam” when he grew increasingly impatient and began questioning a hospital worker, who didn’t appreciate Foster’s words. This led to the heated exchange.
During his college three-year career at Alabama, Foster recorded 211 tackles, 23 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, and nine pass defenses over the course of 39 games.
We have him being selected by the Bengals in the First Round of our 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
