A top-25 option at inside linebacker for the past two seasons, Mason Foster is nothing if not consistent in the box scores. However, the tape says different. Foster is a liability in run defense and although his pass coverage last season was improved on previous years, he seems a square peg in a round hole for Lovie Smith's defense and what it asks the middle linebacker to do. Foster may see reduced snaps as a result, so he is a risky proposition and can only be relied upon as an LB4 at present. (May 13)
