Like recruiting, NFL teams don’t rest when it comes to scouting players for the next draft and beyond. Teams might go out to see a certain player and get enamored with another one, who wasn’t on their radar.

ESPN’s Matt Miller took a look at a few prospects who are considered “sleepers” (insider) and although no Irish players were selected as one of those six, Miller did name Notre Dame defensive end Isaiah Foskey as someone who could rise into the top ten picks.

…Foskey could push himself into the top 10 this year. He’s naturally talented. You just don’t hear about him because there are so many studs at defensive end – NFC scout

Miller’s insight from the unnamed scout was telling as to how the NFL teams view Foskey. Not only did he impress the scout with his performance, Miller believes Foskey “has the agility, length, and power to be a force on all three downs. The sky’s the limit on his 2022 season.”

That’s high praise from one of the most well respected draft analysts out there. After last season where Foskey registered 11 sacks, 9.5 tackles-for-loss and six forced fumbles, the bar has been set high for what could be his final campaign in Blue and Gold.
