Looks like Raiders dodged a bullet by passing on Reuben Foster, just arrested for Domestic Violence

It didn’t take long for the latest star Alabama middle linebacker to have a run-in with the law. Reuben Foster, who the 49ers made their selection at the 31st overall pick in last year’s draft has been arrested on charges of Domestic Violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon.

Many people thought the Raiders should have drafted Foster with their pick at 24th overall in the 2016 draft, but they passed on Foster in favor of Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley (who at the time had some legal entanglements of his own to deal with).
