Foster created havoc on the defense for Alabama, coming up with 304 total tackles, 35.0 tackles for loss, and 11.0 sacks. He has great size, and he is a good cover linebacker. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he is a solid pass rusher. He is also a sure fire tackler is very experienced, and he is a hard hitting linebacker. He also has good instincts. He has good speed, but he does get beat at times by fast backs and QBs. I expect Foster to be a 1st round pick, maybe as high as the top 5, but he may drop due to his incident at the Combine, and the reports a failed drug test at the Combine.
