One of the NFL draft's elite linebackers is in the Windy City on Monday as a guest of the Chicago Bears.
Alabama LB Reuben Foster dined with members of the Bears staff on Sunday night and is visiting the club on Monday, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The Bears hold the No. 3 overall selection in the draft.
Foster is the top-ranked linebacker on NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah's Top 50 list, at No. 8 overall, although an NFC pro personnel director believes Temple's Haason Reddick could potentially be selected ahead of Foster.
Foster was the leading tackler for a Crimson Tide team that, led by its defense, went 14-1 last season and advanced to the College Football Playoff title game. The senior made 115 stops with 13 tackles for loss, including five sacks.
