Mason Foster = Ray Lewis?May 5th, 2011
Yes, Raheem Morris went there.
On Wednesday, during an interview on 1040AM, Raheem told host Tom Krasniqi that he didn’t want to hang extraordinary expectations on his third-round draft pick, Mason Foster, but Raheem seemingly couldn’t contain his enthusiasm for Mason.
Krasniqi asked Raheem what linebacker past or present in the NFL he likens Foster to. And Raheem went right for the top of the mountain under Lawrence Taylor. He picked Ray Lewis.
Raheem said Foster’s movement, practice devotion, desire, hand usage and splash-play ability, among other traits, are all in the Ray Lewis mold.
Raheem also went on to detail how hard Foster practiced at the Senior Bowl explaining that Foster put his face on everyone.
Joe can’t wait to see what this kid’s got.
