2024 NFL Draft Profile: Javon Foster, OL, Missouri


The 2024 NFL offseason is here and that means it’s time for mock drafts, draft profiles and everything that goes with them. So without further ado, here’s one of many Draft Profiles for the 2024 NFL draft.

Javon Foster, OL, Missouri

HT: 6’6
WT: 313 lbs


First-team All-SEC (2023)

Second-team All-SEC (2022)



Foster thrives on physicality, often out-grappling bigger defensive linemen and winning in the phone booth with tenacity and upper-body strength.

He’ll appeal to man-blocking teams, and he’s a fairly high-upside developmental pick when considering his value in the run game.

Shows excellent awareness when presented with stunts and blitzes, and Foster works well with teammates on combo blocks

He’s infinitely coachable and athletically gifted with the ideal frame, physique, weight distribution, knee bend and hand strength to be molded into a special blocker.

Displays good awareness when it comes to reading moving bodies, effectively reacting and adjusting. Foster also shows a good feel for combo blocks.

A better than expected athlete who steadily improved in pass protection. Stout at the point of attack and maintains a wide base.


While Foster probably fits best as a right tackle, he has an outside chance at surviving on the left side for a team with a power-running attack.

Heavy-footed with an inconsistent kick slide. He’s going to have an awful time with speed rushers if asked to block on an island; he’s likely going to need help on the edge regardless.

Foster seems too focused on winning with his hands, too often stopping his feet. Foster also plays with poor balance in the run game, lunging into contact rather than sinking his hips and delivering a block.


In 2023 as a fifth year senior Foster saw action in 12 games and played a total of 831 snaps for the Tigers. He allowed 12 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack while playing at left tackle.
