The Notre Dame football team has a special player in Isaiah Foskey, a dominant edge rusher that could land in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.
During the 2021 college football season, Notre Dame football got outstanding play from Isaiah Foskey, who racked up ten sacks overall. Throughout the season, Foskey was a menace to opposing offenses, and it became clear pretty early on that teams were going to have to gameplan for him every week.
He played so well that many of the NFL Mock Draft experts expected him to go on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft, but he instead decided to return to South Bend for another go-around. With Marcus Freeman getting the head coach job for the Irish, many draft-eligible guys decided to return, and Foskey may be the biggest defensive star to head back to Notre Dame this offseason.
If he can put together another great season, his gamble to return to South Bend will have been a smart one.
ESPN’s Todd McShay is high on the Notre Dame football edge rusher
In a recent tweet, ESPN draft expert Todd McShay was bullish on Isaiah Foskey, and rightfully so. With a strong 2022 campaign, Foskey could become the No. 1 sack artist in the history of the Notre Dame football program, passing some elite company that went on to become stars at the next level.
McShay loves the fact that Foskey is an expert at forcing turnovers, as he had six strip-sacks in 2022, and like us, he believes Foskey will land in the first round with another solid season. For the Irish to succeed against a tough 2022 slate, he is going to have to be just as good as he was last season, and possibly even better, especially against Ohio State in Week 1.
The Notre Dame football team got great play from guard Aaron Banks during his time in South Bend, and now, he appears ready to take over in Year 2.
Notre Dame football is going to be an exciting team to watch this season, as many have them as high as No. 5 in the country in their preseason polls. One thing is for sure, after the year he had in 2021, teams are going to be game-planning for Foskey, but with his talent, it may not matter.
