Alabama Linebacker Reuben Foster, a potential
"It's like the devil is coming after me," Foster told NFL.com who first reported his failed test. Foster says that his test coming back dilute is likely due to him being sick at the combine. "I couldn't eat much, but I had to drink water and Gatorade."
It's been a rough pre-draft process for the former All-American linebacker. Prior to news of the failed drug test, there were still concerns over his incident at the combine involving a hospital worker. That incident forced him to leave the combine before his on-field workout.
As for what this does for his draft stock, I'm not sure. I doubt he'll go top-10 at this point. The Washington Redskins, of course, pick 17 overall and could use a linebacker of his caliber. However, I'm starting to believe that even the Redskins could pass up on this talented player. Bruce Allen isn't into taking huge risks and could perceive Foster as such. Florida Gators LB Jarrad Davis could serve as a safer option without much of a drop talent-wise. The questions and concerns are just mounting around Reuben Foster which could scare teams. In the end, it'll come down to how well he interviewed with teams.
