Isaiah Foskey's calling card is a his steady play and high effort. He might not have the highest ceiling but he has all the markings of standard holding starter much like Jordan Jenkins was for the Jets years back. The Jets should go for more of a dice-roll at EDGE but Foskey is a safe choice for those afraid of bust potential.
Isaiah Foskey is an intriguing EDGE prospect with desirable physical attributes and big-time production. Foskey finished his college career with two straight 10+ sack seasons. In 2022, he had a 14.9% pass rush win rate and a 74.0 pass rush grade (according to PFF).
Size-wise, Foskey is a prototypically ideal defensive end for a 4-3 defense. He's 6'5" and 264 lbs with 34-inch arms. He's got some explosiveness with a 34-inch vertical and a 90th percentile broad jump. However, he does lack desirable agility.
Foskey is good against the run. He sets a hard edge and uses his length to string plays out effectively down the line. He does need to learn how to disengage quicker, though. Often when tackles are able to engage with him, he has a hard time getting their hands off to go out and make plays.
Foskey has room to grow as a pass rusher. His explosiveness shows in flashes but he lacks the threat consistency. He doesn't have the widest arsenal of pass rush moves but can occasionally win on the outside with speed and possesses enough power to threaten tackles with a bull rush or pull and rip through. Foskey needs to improve his secondary rush ability. Tackles have some success with him when they can stop his initial rush.
Foskey is a high floor player with consistent output. His ceiling, however, is lower than other EDGEs in this class. Time will tell if Foskey can figure out how to better put his physical tools to work as an EDGE at the next level. He needs to add more violence to his game and improve his hand usage.
