Mason Foster
Round 3, Pick 84
Position: OLB
Class:  4Sr
School: Washington
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 245
40 Time: 4.75
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 163/14/6.5. Had 85/7.5/2 as a junior and 105 tackles as a sophomore.

Positives: "Productive college linebacker who hustles around the field to make plays. Breaks down well, fluid moving in every direction and effectively makes plays in space or quickly gets out to the flanks and cuts off the corners. Uses his hands to protect himself, smooth turning his hips in transition and gets depth on pass drops. Plays with a good degree of quickness. Remains disciplined with assignments."

Negatives: Slow shedding blocks and can be handled by tight ends or fullbacks. Does not display great speed in pursuit.

Analysis: Foster was a terrific college linebacker but may not have the pure athleticism to start at the next level.

Projection: 5th
