Bleacher Report's David Kenyan predicts Alabama senior ILB Reuben Foster -- excluded from most early mock drafts -- will go in the first round.
"He's the definition of a thumper, but the 6'1", 240-pounder also has tremendous sideline-to-sideline speed," Kenyan wrote. "Don't overthink this one, NFL teams. Foster is a first-round pick." The 6-foot-2, 228-pound Foster posted 73 tackles, eight TFL, nine pass breakups and three quarterback hurries last year. Jun 18 - 12:18 PM

Foster's draft-eligible, but it looks as though he'll be staying put barring a sudden change of heart.

ESPN's Alex Scarbrough pegged junior LB Reuben Foster as Alabama's breakout candidate.

Foster has shined on special teams through two seasons, making highlight reel tackles with an old school mentality. Now Foster is expected to transition to weakside linebacker next to Reggie Ragland. Scarbrough does point out that Foster needs to stay healthy, as "lowering his head too often... has ended in quite a few visits with the training staff."

Alabama freshman LB Reuben Foster suffered a concussion during preseason camp.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach tweeted the news, adding Foster hit fellow freshman running back Alvin Kamara so hard it caused the injury. Schlabach went on to say Foster is expected to play a lot during his first season. The linebacker's recruitment process was highly publicized, with some question his eligibility and his tendency to switch between Auburn and Alabama, but early reports on on-field ability note he is fitting right in with the Crimson Tide.

Auburn 2013 LB recruit Reuben Foster has been cleared to play for the 2012 season.

During his high school recruitment, Foster switched his commitement from Alabama to Auburn after transferring to Auburn High School from Georgia. The move was called into question, so Foster's mother met with Alabama High School Association officials, not the NCAA as previously reported. According to Foster's mother, "They want to make sure there was nothing illegal done to get us down there, or anything like that. They want to make sure there wasn’t a college booster involved." Apparently everything was cleared and Foster will battle for playing time next season.
