Notre Dame EDGE rusher Isaiah Foskey is an interesting prospect. Outside of projected top-five pick Kyle Hamilton, Foskey is likely the best player on Notre Dame’s defense, however, he is projected to land this far.
In 2021, Foskey has shown good ability to rush the passer, 9 sacks, create turnovers, 5 forced fumbles, and even cover tight ends and running backs. Overall at Notre Dame, the third-year Sophmore has 13.5 sacks in two years of play.
In some ways, his game reminds me of former Miami Dolphins and current New England Patriot Kyle Van Noy. Last season, Van Noy was one of the Dolphins’ best players and it can be argued that he is their biggest missing piece on defense this year.
While Foskey won’t be the player Van Noy is right off the bat, he could develop nicely in Brian Flores’ scheme. The Dolphins are in dire need of a player that can step into Van Noy’s role, and Foskey has shown that he has the skillset.
In this mock draft, the Dolphins double-dip from the Arkansas Razorbacks offense and this time select the team’s starting center in Ricky Stromberg. Stromberg, who is the best available center at this point comes in at a bigger than normal center frame at 6-foot-4, 310-pounds.
While he won’t be as touted as Frank Ragnow was, but there is a high chance Stromgberg rises due to the need for high-quality centers. Seeing how well rookie center Creed Humphry is playing, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Stromberg, who is a high-level athlete himself, rises up draft boards come draft day.
