Strengths
Speed, consistency, and leadership are Foster's strengths.
Weaknesses
Not as large as many NFL types like their middle linebackers. Occasionally is slow in his recognition of plays. Might be scheme limited.
Overall Analysis
Foster is a very good middle line backing prospect with the pedigree and game film to justify a top ten selection being used on him. He should start immediately before settling in as a Pro'Bowl caliber player and the defensive leader of his team.
