4 National defensive linemen Chicago Bears must watch at Senior Bowl
Chicago Bears Senior Bowl Scouting: Isaiah Foskey – Notre Dame
A player I am hoping the Chicago Bears look at on Day 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft if they want to add more pass-rush help is Isaiah Foskey. I already said I have a bias toward Notre Dame, but Foskey is a true pass-rushing defensive end. He stands in at 6’5″ and weighs 265 pounds. He fits as a down, defensive end in this Matt Eberflus system.
Foskey would push every pass-rusher on this current roster to start as soon as he is drafted. He is coming off of a breakout year with 10.5 sacks for the Irish. He had 10 sacks the year before too. Honestly, he didn’t flash as much as I would have liked in Senior Bowl practice, but I am hoping he proves what I see in him during the actual game today.
4 Chicago Bears who could earn an extension this offseason
The Chicago Bears are looking to rebuild this organization from the studs. Ryan Poles could look to extend these four players.
When watching his film at Notre Dame, Foskey shows explosiveness off the line. He has a solid counter-move game but needs to add more pass-rush moves to his repertoire. His run-stopping ability is still a work in progress, but he’s shown consistent progress in that area too. Foskey has an upside to his game but isn’t a finished product. I have him graded as a late second-round option who could possibly be there when Chicago picks at 54.
