    Breaking: Redskins claim Reuben Foster NFL.COM

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/reuben-foster?id=2557837 HOME TRACKER MOCK DRAFTS HISTORY SEARCH BY Select... Name Position Round Team 2017 Draft Prospects GRADE 6.33 Reuben Foster (LB) HT: 6'0" WT: 229LBS. POSITION: LB SCHOOL: Alabama ARM LENGTH: 32 3/8" HANDS: 10 1/4" Overview Alabama's star inside linebacker started his ascension to elite prospect status last summer when he lost 20 pounds. His newfound speed and agility, while keeping his trademark aggression and instincts, made him a unanimous first-team All-American and All-SEC pick. Foster also won the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker and was a finalist for the Bednarik Award, leading the Tide with 115 tackles, 13 for which went for losses including five sacks. He won the SEC Championship MVP, as well (11 tackles, 2.5 for loss, two sacks). Foster was a starter as a junior (73 tackles, eight TFL, two sacks, nine pass break-ups) after two seasons as a key reserve MIKE linebacker and special teams ace (12 tackles in 2013; 22 tackles, two TFL in 2014). SELECTED BY: 49ers ROUND: 1 PICK (OVERALL): 31 (31) PICK ANALYSIS: "He reminds me of Luke Kuechly when I watch tape. He's an immediate impact player. Sideline to sideline, he will light you up. I'm amazed that he's fallen to this point. ... San Francisco better be right on him with that shoulder." -- Mike Mayock COMBINE STATS ANALYSIS Strengths Alpha mentality with ferocious hitting style that puts offensive skill positions on alert. Outstanding athlete with springy, reactive feet. Lost 15 pounds in off-season, which gave him more speed and explosiveness. Loose hips and long stride allows him to open and chase immediately. Has elite sideline-to-sideline range. Tough as nails. Brings swagger to a linebacking corps. Never passive and always means it. Willing to take his shots downhill and into gaps. Lands strong warning blows on climbing guards early in the game. Coverage ability is an asset. Logged 10 passes defensed in 2015. Can carry long speed against running backs on wheel routes and nine routes. Has worked to improve tackling technique, which has yielded higher success rate of finishes. Weaknesses Instincts are just average. Overly reliant on speed and athleticism over instincts and feel. Can be a tick slow to respond to play-action. Inconsistent defeating blocks. Too eager to take on everyone at the point of attack. Gets shoulder covered up firing into incoming blockers. Needs to improve stack and shed technique to keep himself clean. Will drop his head at times as tackler. Poor tackling technique led to "stinger" issues early in his career. Draft Projection Round 1 Sources Tell Us "He's not a MIKE linebacker. I think he's a pure run-and-hit WILL linebacker with good cover talent. I'm worried about what his medicals will show because he's had some issues with stingers during his career. I have a higher grade on him than I had on Reggie Ragland. Better pro potential to me." -- NFC director of scouting NFL Comparison Bobby Wagner Bottom Line Foster is a vicious hitter with elite playmaking range and an ability to toggle between 225 and 240 pounds. Athleticism gives him cover ability that former teammate Reggie Ragland never possessed. Has Pro Bowl potential as a 3-4 inside linebacker or a 4-3 weak-side linebacker, but concerns over his medical history could be a consideration, according to some teams.

    Wow that's a lot of employees, just curious, what type of business do you own? Do you invest your business profits into real estate? I'm looking into becoming a business owner of some kind and have plans to do this.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Nevermind, the Deadskins suck. Can't really rely on defense to win in today's NFL, rule changes etc. I like defense better but football sucks now and is no longer the same game. Load up on offense and hope to God we get our Patrick Mahomes at some point in the near future.

    Rich Tandler has died

    Very sad news ? AnieTad @AnieTad Replying to @EBJunkies No car crash, no drowning. I’m his sister; he had a sudden heart attack and died immediately. No trauma, no drama. Just with the dignity that Rich always had. 11:22 PM · Oct 19, 2018

    Kerrigan is a stud, he has provided steady pressure for most of the season thus far. But but but he doesn't have a sack, whhhaaaaa, cry me a river.

    From the comments section... https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2018/defense-and-pass-pressure-2017 by Bryan Knowles // Jul 04, 2018 - 3:25am A pressure is a passing play where the quarterback is hurried or hit by the pass rush. If the quarterback is forced to throw the ball early because a defender is racing towards him, or ends up scrambling forward as the pocket collapses, or gets knocked to the turf, or panics and throws the ball straight up in the air (the "Peterman Special") it counts as a pressure. There isn't a strict mathematical definition or something; there's not a precise distance or time requirement for a defender to cause a pressure. It's a charting stat -- if the play was disrupted by a pass rusher, it's a pressure. There is an art determining just what qualifies as a pressure, so if you want to be pedantic about it, this is technically tackling "plays which were marked as a pass pressure by one of our two game charting companies, Sports Info Solutions and ESPN Stats & Info, with disagreements being determined by us on a case-by-case basis." In general, though, it basically means what you think it means.
