News broke Friday night that Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster was sent home from the NFL combine, and more details emerged about what reportedly took place Saturday morning.
According to Robert Klemko of the Monday Morning Quarterback, Foster “grew impatient with long lines for (medical) exams” and “pulled the ‘do you know who I am’ card.”
That lead to the heated face-to-face exchange that ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Friday night.
Due to injury, Foster wasn’t participating in any drills, but attended the combine for medical examinations and meetings with NFL personnel.
It’s truly amazing to think about how far Foster has come as a prospect. Early on, he was a hard-hitting linebacker who didn’t tackle properly. He often lowered his head, which would leave him injured.
Foster kept his hard-hitting ways but improved his technique to develop into the best inside linebacker in the country.
Foster took home the Butkus Award after leading Alabama’s defense this past season.
Foster is considered by many to be a top-10 prospect. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. had Foster going No. 9 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals in his latest mock draft.
