Arian Foster's first experience with the NFL Draft didn't go so well. Back in 2009, he went undrafted out of the University of Tennessee and was forced to sign a free agent deal with the Houston Texans shortly after the draft ended. But Foster—who has turned into one of the best running backs in the NFL since 2009—is going to get a second chance to make his NFL draft dreams come true.
Foster will star in the new Kevin Costner movie Draft Day. He'll play—what else?—a running back. Parts of the film are being shot this week in New York City, and the film is expected to be released sometime next year. NFL players DeMario Davis, James Brewer, Ramses Barden, Zoltan Mesko, and Stephen Hill will also make appearances in the movie. Stay tuned for additional details.
