REPORT: Reuben Foster will not slide past the Cardinals at 13th overall
Smokescreens, misinformation and a bunch of hoopla is standard for the morning of NFL Draft day, and this year is no exception. Rumors, predictions and everything in-between is circulating all over the place as we are literally hours away from the 2017 NFL Draft. One rumor that was directly told to me by an AFC scout was pertaining to Alabama LB Reuben Foster.
As most have heard, Foster failed a drug test at the NFL combine for a diluted sample. He and his agent of course denied that drugs were the reason, rather that a case of the flu and hydration caused him to fail the test. Whatever the case, some experts have predicted a slide for the physical linebacker—but I am here to tell you that is not the case. According to a source who I do put a lot of stock in said, “Foster will not be falling far on Day 1. He 100% will not make it past Arizona at No.13”.
Yes, that means if Foster is there at pick thirteen, he will be selected by Arizona. The pick makes sense, the Cardinals have a lot of holes to fill on their defense and linebacker is certainly one. Foster is a do-everything linebacker who can hit with force and be an asset in the passing game, someone Cardinals DC James Bettcher would love to have anchor his defense for years.
In our MFST mock, both myself and Eric Lemons had the Cardinals selecting an offensive player, but needs on a defense that was elite only a few seasons ago may be more pressing to the Cardinals brass.
Whatever happens, MFST will have you covered as we host our first LIVE NFL Draft show on YouTube and Facebook.
