Brandon Foster

Position: Cornerback
Height: 5-7.5
Weight: 185 pounds
Hometown: Arlington, TX

Strengths: Speed, speed, speed. Foster wasn’t on many teams’ radar even after two solid seasons in the defensive backfield for the Longhorns, but a 4.28 40-yard dash at Texas’ pro day certainly got people’s attention. Cover skills and ball skills are solid, had three interceptions and three touchdowns this season so he knows how to make plays.

Weaknesses: Height. Listed at 5-foot-9 on the Texas roster, Foster measured officially at 5-foot-7.5 for the NFL scouts. Some teams will avoid him solely based on that. Won’t be able to cover man-to-man against larger receivers so will have to catch on as a nickel back or in a Cover 2 system.

Projection: 6th or 7th round

    Despite his size I think he will still turn out to be very good.

    Just by watching several of the games, I
    noticed that he has heart on and off the field. And would tackle the biggest player.

    Keep up the good work
