Alabama LB Reuben Foster failed drug test at NFL Combine

So I drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up.

Foster is adamant that he is clean and has a good explanation for why the sample was diluted.

The failed test comes on the heels of Foster being sent home early from the combine following a reported altercation with a hospital worker. Foster's test came back as positive because it was flagged as a diluted sample, which counts as a failed test.

He said he was sick before the Combine. Not to mention, just overall questions about his character and choices off-the-field. He couldn't keep any food down so he said he contacted a doctor, received some medication and began hydrating himself.


The Ravens picking him in the first round was an idea that I put forward in my most recent first round mock, and I was thoroughly put in my place by several commenters who either hated the pick, or scoffed at the idea that I had them trading up to get him. "Then I went in there, drinking and drinking water, trying to flush out my system from whatever was making me sick and trying to keep my weight up and took the test". "I hope I go on Thursday, but I can't control that". Foster had surgery to fix a partially torn rotator cuff after the season. He sent a letter apologizing for his actions to all 32 teams.

One week from now, if Foster is holding up a Ravens' jersey with his name on it, I won't tell you how you should feel about it. His production on the field has drawn comparisons to outstanding linebackers such as Luke Kuechley, a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year as well as All-Pro Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Foster graduated from Alabama and called the plays for their complex defense. But he said he's grateful for it and is looking forward to Thursday.

That's the consensus. But only time will tell how teams will react to the entirety of it.
