Overview

Foster is a three-year starter who won Freshman All-SEC honors in 2005 after stepping in at left guard and right tackle due to injuries. He primarily started at right tackle the past three seasons, but he will be tried inside and outside at the next level to see where he fits best. Foster was named to the ESPN Mark May's 2007 "MayDay Team" after playing with a broken thumb throughout most of his junior season. Had an arm span of 34 1/2 inches and a hand span of 10 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Tall, massive prospect with long, strong arms and better initial and short-area quickness than you'd expect for his size. Can wall off tackles inside or get the outside shoulder of his man outside to create running lanes. Not overly quick getting down on the cut block, but his sheer mass makes him effective. It takes ends an extra second to get around his big body to the quarterback, and he's too strong to get bull rushed into the quarterback. Plays through the whistle, and will hit his man two or three times if necessary. Has adequate foot speed to get to linebackers if they are directly in his path. Vocal leader in the locker room and on the field. Negatives: A bit larger in the middle than scouts like. Might need to move inside because although he has a fair kick-slide in pass protection, he does not have the lateral quickness to stay with the quick outside rush. Hands are not quick enough to reset if he doesn't latch on initially. Waist-bender who loses his balance too often when extending his arms and not moving his feet in pass protection and blocking at the second level. Lumbers in space and does not change directions quickly. Poor recovery speed against twists and quick moves.
