Scouting Report: Strengths
  • In the run game, he’s aggressive coming downhill and a sure tackler.
  • Tracks the ball well and has the natural ball skills for forcing turnovers.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
  • Very good instincts, especially in the box. Sound and solid tackler. Takes good angles in pursuit.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Overaggressive and will miss tackle attempts. Needs to do a better job breaking down in space and using proper technique. Suspect anticipation and ball skills.
  • He’s a little bit tight and straight-line-ish as an athlete, and Foster struggles when he has to mirror quickness.
  • Plays out of control too often, laying a lot of big hits but also missing a lot of tackles along the way. Foster also needs to do a better job reading routes when sitting back as a single-high safety.
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
