Mason Foster Fails to Impress at the NFL Combine


Mason Foster did not do bad at the NFL combine, he was just not very impressive. He found himself in the middle of the pack in almost all of the drills he competed in today.

Did he hurt his draft status? He didn’t really help it with his showing at the combine, he was already a day 2 pick looking to try to find himself in the second round. He may just be a third round pick now, with the possibility of being a fourth round pick.

The film doesn’t lie on Mason Foster, he is a hard worker, he does make a lot of tackles, he is faster at football speed. However, some coaches will lose interest due to his combine numbers. That being said, look for him to be anywhere from a second round to a fourth round pick.

Here are his combine stats compared to the top performer at each:
