For the next few weeks, we know the Arizona Cardinals visits with draft prospects will be picking up, so the news keeps on coming in.

Today, the Arizona Cardinals met with Reuben Foster, the consensus top off ball linebacker in the 2017 NFL Draft. Or, at least he was.

Foster is now ten weeks removed from shoulder surgery, which means his meeting with teams is more about figuring out his health status, and less about his on field work.

Those questions have pushed Foster down draft boards, which could create an advantageous situation for the Arizona Cardinals.

There are not a lot of questions about Foster on the field.

He is an unquestioned leader of one of college football’s best defenses. He has played with an abundance of talent and stood out as one of the better players on the field. The question is, how often will he be able to stay on the field?

If you are getting a healthy Foster, there may not be five better players in the 2017 NFL Draft.
