TWJ 2012: Arian Foster

From undrafted free agent to one of the most sought-after running backs in Fantasy Football drafts, Arian Foster rushed for over 1600 yards in his second season.

Why did every team pass over Foster in 2009? According to Wikipedia:

Foster’s subpar senior campaign caused his draft stock to plummet, as well as scouts’ concerns about his below-average pass-blocking, issues with ball security and the less-than-stellar reviews from Tennessee staff members that portrayed him as selfish and hard to coach.[13] A pulled hamstring also prevented Foster from working out at the NFL Scouting Combine, then he had a poor showing at Tennessee’s Pro Day when he registered a 4.71 40-yard dash, 4.50 short shuttle, 32-inch vertical leap and 9’7″ broad jump.
