In Tuesday’s Blue 88, Brock Huard shared his impression of how former Husky linebacker Mason Foster fared at the NFL scouting combine:

“Really solid, workmanlike… Mason Foster had a good week down in Mobile (at the Senior Bowl). I think everybody was anxious to see him with the pads off. With the pads on, that game film that we talked about that’s about 80 percent of the grade on these guys, fantastic for Mason Foster. He’s fast, he makes plays, he makes plays on the ball, he can rush the passer. Incredibly versatile.

“He was 6’1” and he was 245, which was big enough. He ran between a 4.68 and 4.75 (in the 40-yard dash), which was solid but not spectacular, but doesn’t hurt you either. He looked very, very comfortable in the drills.

“So I think all the way around, Mason Foster is helping himself through this process of the Senior Bowl and combine. When (teams) go back and they get their grade and they put in that game film and they look at every single snap of these guys, Mason Foster is going to keep climbing. It won’t surprise me at all if he’s (drafted in the) late second or into that third round.”

Brock also discussed whose physical ability has stood out the most at the combine and why the spread offenses that are successful in college won’t work in the NFL. You can listen to Blue 88 here.
