Reuben Foster has been in the news for the wrong reasons in the lead-up to the NFL draft.
Now, the former Alabama linebacker is getting some much-needed good headlines.
ESPN draft guru Todd McShay, one of the most notable media members “in the know” for the media, really likes Foster.
More tape I watch (’15-16) more I think Ala. LB Foster is best pure football player in this draft. If he handles his biz, special NFL player

That glowing assessment can only help Foster, who was booted from the NFL draft combine after an incident at a nearby hospital.
Looking to repair his image and draft status, Foster met with NFL teams before Alabama’s pro day earlier this month. His teammates also gave glowing marks to his leadership and character.
Bleacher Report and CBS Sports both have Foster tabbed for the ninth selection in the draft, with SEC Country having him go No. 11 to the New Orleans Saints.
Of course, McShay’s tweet does offer a qualification.
“If he handles his biz…”
