Notes: Reuben Foster cleared medically, did Lions make mistake passing on him?

Would you take a healthy Reuben Foster over Jarrad Davis?

Detroit Lions training camp preview:

Posted by Pride of Detroit on Thursday, July 27, 2017
  • The San Francisco 49ers announced on Thursday that first-round rookie linebacker Reuben Foster has been medically cleared and will not start training camp on the PUP list.

Foster fell a lot farther than many people thought in the 2017 NFL Draft, and there were a lot of concerns about his health. In fact, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said it was possible Foster would miss his entire rookie year. There were other concerns, too, including a bizarre incident which got him thrown out of the NFL Combine.

The Detroit Lions could have taken Foster at 21 overall, but passed on him for Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis. Knowing what you know now, do you think the Lions made a mistake?
