Draft Rewind 2011 – Mason Foster – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about MASON FOSTER: Washington, 6012 245 4.75. Three-year starter. Very good motor and hustle.  Athletic, shows some explosiveness on contact. Inconsistent with shed, at times got locked onto a block by losing leverage. Sometimes plays high and lacks power to consistently defeat blocks. Good downhill player who tracks well getting to the ball.  Good instincts, showing outstanding initial quickness. Will get caught up reacting too quickly at times as play action hurt him some.  Normally takes good angles but will overrun at times. Good coverage ability and ability to play in space. Takes good drops and reacts well on the thrown ball.  Solid tackling skills and consistently tracked backs on the perimeter. Good range in pursuit and consistently hustled to get to the ball.  Has an explosive first step and the ability to turn the corner on the edge.  Should be a good blitzer as he is relentless with effort along with his quickness. In the right scheme he can play inside or outside. Arms are shorter than ideal to ward off blockers. Plays in a 4-3 scheme. Will contribute on special teams. Will need more strength to hold up inside on the next level. 2010 stats: 163 tackles, 14 TFL, 6 1/2 sacks, 3 PBU. Career stats: 378 tackles, 38 1/2 TFL, 10 1/2 sacks, 11 PBU, 4 INTs. Edge speed:left 1.98, right 1.94. OSR:15/19. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31, H-9 3/4, BP-22, SS-4.45).
