RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After an extremely productive college career at Washington and positive early reviews from the Buccaneers, Foster was largely a flop as a starting middle linebacker in his rookie year. He finished with 83 tackles and two sacks, which is not quite what the Bucs were looking for when they gave him the job. He will be back this year to improve on those numbers, and should be in good position to do so with a his first full offseason to prepare.
Foster was a superb college player who should be a big-time IDP whenever he gets a starting spot in Tampa’s defense. If Barrett Ruud doesn't return, Foster has a great shot at starting at middle linebacker as a rookie for the Buccaneers this year. In that case, consider moving Foster as high as the top-20. He finished his senior season at Washington with an absurd total of 162 tackles (105 solo) in just 13 games, and that's not to mention the 14 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks.
