Perhaps the biggest loser in 2017 is Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Saturday the NFL is reviewing the process that created what a league source called a "miscommunication" that led to Foster's frustration with the long wait for a "pre-exam".
Such was the case for Foster, who is leaving on Saturday after not being scheduled to participate in on-field drills anyway following offseason rotator cuff surgery.
On NFL.com's analysis page for Foster reports that some teams have concerns over his medical history.

The Obama officials did not do all of this because they simply did not care for Donald Trump, but rather due to some distrust.
Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster is on a flight from Indianapolis to Tuscaloosa a couple of days earlier than he originally planned. He is a highly regarded prospect and has appeared as a top-10 pick in many mock drafts.
It will be interesting to see if more details come out about the alleged incident with the hospital worker, and how much these recent events hurt Foster's draft stock. The next important date for Foster is Alabama's pro day on Wednesday, March 8, when he will get a chance to meet with teams.
Past year he recorded 13 tackles for loss and five sacks en route to winning the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker.
This only compounds the negative buzz on Foster from what interviews he did with teams before his premature departure.
