I think I'd raise DT up to #2 on the list. Not only will Mebane be a FA, but Rubin as well. I would only expect 1 of those guys to be resigned. But even if what I see as unlikely happens and somehow both are resigned youth is needed here as well. Jordan Hill has shown flashes here n there but can't seem to stay healthy - missing a handful of games or more each of his 3 seasons.
Why aren't people hammering on how Cam did a " thats' not not my ball" while staring at his own fumble in the 4th quarter. He could have at least tried to recover it. It was last chance time and he showed he wasn't up to it.
Lacks speed to stay with running backs and tight ends
Summary: Mason Foster saw action starting as a freshman for the Huskies, and went out on a high note recording more tackles (163) in his senior campaign than any Pac-10 player in over 20 years for a single season. He also owned the Holiday Bowl as Washington avenged a blowout loss to Nebraska with a stunning win.
While Foster has experience at all three linebacker spots in a 4-3 and has potential inside in a 3-4, it is unclear which position suits him best. He is not a terrorizing pass rusher on the outside, and not overly athletic or tall enough as a 4-3 weakside linebacker should be. However, he filled up the stat sheet on an otherwise poor defense and should continue to get better in whatever role awaits him in the NFL. The safest bet might be inside an odd front.
Player Comparison: London Fletcher. When I think of undersized tackling machines, London Fletcher comes to mind. Mason Foster is in some ways similar. Neither player wowed Al Davis in the 40 (Fletcher was a low 4.7 although he did not attend the Combine) but their instincts carry them to the football. Obviously Fletcher playing at a small school and lacking measurable attributes caused him to slide out of the draft altogether. Foster garnered more attention in the Pac-10 and is a solid Day 2 selection.
