Reuben Foster Still a “Dream Fit” for New Orleans?

Some people still think so.

Reuben Foster has definitely made the lead-up to the 2017 NFL Draft interesting. A shoulder injury, a dismissal from the NFL combine, and then this:

How much will that scare teams away from him come draft day? Are there teams that still covet the potential in Foster enough to day dream about landing him? Bleacher Report seems to think the Saints would love to have him, giving Foster to the Saints as their “dream fit” for each team.

The New Orleans Saints lack a defensive catalyst. Foster can add an electric presence to the middle of the franchise's consistently poor defense, but his addition will come down to how the organization feels about the aforementioned concerns. Foster won't be the only top defensive talent available with the 11th overall pick. As long as the Saints do their homework and are comfortable with Foster's flagged areas, his on-field addition fits the definition of a no-brainer dream scenario.

Well, you can’t argue that the Saints could use the defensive building block moving forward, but “if the Saints are comfortable with Foster’s red flags” is one mighty big “if.”

So what says you? Is Foster still a dream fit for the Saints in your opinion?
