An awful lot going on tonight, so I’ll post one more entry here to try to wrap it up. …
— I had a chance to talk with Mason Foster tonight after he was drafted by Tampa Bay. Here’s what he said.
— You can watch the Tampa Bay brass talk here about taking Foster. The first thing mentioned by GM Mark Dominik is that all the players they drafted were captain. Also mentioned is that they liked his versatility and for now, he’s just classified as a linebacker and not at any specific spot. It’s Dominik also states that they liked that Foster was good in coverage and that his high tackle numbers speak to his instincts.
Tampa Bay coach Raheem Morris echoes that they liked his versatility and his evident love for the game of football and also that Foster could play as many as four positions, something they valued with the uncertainity of free agency this season.
