Draft Profile: Bio
Javon Foster from West Bloomfield High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Foster opted to join Missouri.

In 2019 as a freshman Foster saw action in just 2 games and played a total of 23 snaps for the Tigers. He allowed no QB hurries, no QB hits, and no sacks while playing at left tackle.

As a sophomore in 2020 he played in 6 games and a total of 188 snaps. He conceded 4 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack while playing most of his snaps at right tackle.

In 2021 as a junior Foster saw action in 13 games and totaled 934 snaps. He gave up 14 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and 2 sacks while playing at left tackle.

In 2022 as a senior Foster saw action in 12 games and played a total of 805 snaps for the Tigers. He allowed 9 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and 4 sacks while playing at left tackle.

In 2023 as a fifth year senior Foster saw action in 12 games and played a total of 831 snaps for the Tigers. He allowed 12 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack while playing at left tackle.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Foster thrives on physicality, often out-grappling bigger defensive linemen and winning in the phone booth with tenacity and upper-body strength.
  • He’ll appeal to man-blocking teams, and he’s a fairly high-upside developmental pick when considering his value in the run game.
  • Shows excellent awareness when presented with stunts and blitzes, and Foster works well with teammates on combo blocks
  • He's infinitely coachable and athletically gifted with the ideal frame, physique, weight distribution, knee bend and hand strength to be molded into a special blocker.
  • Displays good awareness when it comes to reading moving bodies, effectively reacting and adjusting. Foster also shows a good feel for combo blocks.
  • A better than expected athlete who steadily improved in pass protection. Stout at the point of attack and maintains a wide base.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • While Foster probably fits best as a right tackle, he has an outside chance at surviving on the left side for a team with a power-running attack.
  • Heavy-footed with an inconsistent kick slide. He’s going to have an awful time with speed rushers if asked to block on an island; he’s likely going to need help on the edge regardless.
  • Foster seems too focused on winning with his hands, too often stopping his feet. Foster also plays with poor balance in the run game, lunging into contact rather than sinking his hips and delivering a block.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
