It will be very interesting to see how the Eagles and the rest of the NFL value Isaiah Foskey and Felix Anudike-Uzomah.
In many ways, Isaiah Foskey‘s final season at the collegiate level mirrored the team he played for… solid but at times inconsistent. If that winds up being a prospects tale, however, you want to go about your business in the manner that Isaiah Foskey did. Start strong and close strong. Then, hope everyone forgets what happened in the middle of all of that.
Most will like Foskey’s size. He’s six-foot-five and 260 pounds. The questions, however, are about his athleticism. Some believe he’s too stiff for their liking. In 2022, he racked up 45 tackles, 11 sacks, and a forced fumble. That along with playing at a high-profile school like Notre Dame will assure that you wind up on some radars.
Here’s some transparency. Before releasing this list, it was Felix Anudike-Uzomah‘s name that saw the most movement. We originally thought we graded him too high. We moved him down to the land of the ‘honorable mentions’ before placing him just outside the top ten.
Here’s what we realized. Leaving him out of our top-ten ranking of edge rushers would be a decision made in error because he truly belongs on the list. We just need further time to debate where he belongs.
Most scouts and draft pundits grade him as a “quality Day 2 selection”. He finished with 46 tackles, two forced fumbles, and 8.5 sacks in 2022.
