I love his highlights, and if some other players weren't there I would not hesitate to get him at 17 (although he may fall farther after the drug test), but I honestly like Reddick better. Foster's hits won't be as impactful in the NFL and his focus on the big hit leads to whiffs, broken tackles, etc. and he has a history of stingers and a shoulder surgery as a result. I'd be worried that he won't hold up to that abuse against NFL players.

I'd be OK with Foster, but Cooley's film breakdown today said he was like Perry Riley - but could cover. That'd be a talented upgrade for us, but still wouldn't be Luke Kuechly. Could consider Haasan Reddick if he's available.

Highlight films are misleading, because they only show the good plays. Here's a film breakdown from a random internet guy.. It's not ESPN worthy but points out a consistent hesitation / difficulty Reuben has quickly reading plays..

Re: 2017 Draft Prospects

What was Cooley looking at? Perry Riley? LOL. Now I don't watch film but the Bama games I saw Foster was running sideline to sideline, blowing people up, making plays and was active. He can clearly run where Riley could not. He's way more explosive and Riley really wasn't. Riley was a slow, non covering ILB that could just play in a small area. Riley was a fish out of water in space.

As far as his test, it was diluted. I'd still draft him in a freakin' heartbeat. I don't want choir boys, I want a mean SOB that wakes up in a bad mood on Sunday.

I am with you on that. At least for depth, if not a starter opposite Josh. I still want us to take Peppers at 17 and keep him at SS. There will never be another Sean Taylor, but he might be close enough for me. I would even consider another FS in the lower rounds, just in case the Cravens experiment at S doesn't work out as expected. If we were crazy and did trade Kirk, I would get Peppers and the CB from Ohio St. Killer combo for a draft. I do want us to keep Kirk though, so that is just my wishes if the unthinkable occurred. Thrusday will be fun!!!!!!!!

Cooley tape analysis is inconsistent. Sometimes seems like it's on other times seems off.

Plus, I'm done with Cooley after this last incident. Zero credibility, he's a mouthpiece

You are still pissed off at Cooley? Damn, give it a rest. The first 10 or 25 times you bashed him were enough.

Re: 2017 Draft Prospects

How many of you will watch all of the first round? I haven't been following the mock drafts as much as i normally do. I will watch about the first 10 picks and then come back for our pick. After our pick, i will come here for the instant feed back. I think i prefer having the draft on Saturday and Sunday instead of prime time.

I watch the entire first round because I am addicted to the draft.

BTW, I saw a mock draft where Jonathan Allen fell to us at #17. If that were to happen, how long would it take for the Skins to turn in that card?
