Tackle Could Tab Interest from Cardinals

Tennessee right tackle Ramon Foster has the big league in his blood and is ready for his time to shine. He's a large prospect who can stand his ground but needs to pick up the pace at his Pro Day on Wednesday, March 11. AZRedReport.com caught up with Foster at the NFL Scouting Combine. He addresses his Pro bloodlines, draft potential, expectations and former UT teammates in this exclusive.

Tennessee's Ramon Foster's comment that he comes from an athletic family is an understatement. His three older brothers all play professional sports. Foster (6'5", 328) has a sibling corps with two professional basketball players and a brother who suits up for the Atlanta Falcons.

They helped him prepare for the NFL Scouting Combine.

"Them being professional athletes they help you how to deal with things and the other issues players don't understand," Foster said. "They have helped me out and shown be the ropes, prepped me."

Foster denies any sibling rivalry.

"We have a friendly relationship all of us," Foster said. "We just want to see the other ones be successful but I am sure each and everyone of us want to be a $10 million type of guy, that is obvious."

Next up is his Pro Day on March 11. Foster's stock as a right tackle with some left tackle experience, is leveling out. He's been projected all over the board, more popularly in the sixth or seventh round.

"I am just riding the river right now," Foster said.

Foster does have other expectations and big cleats to fill, not only from his brothers but of the average NFL player.

"I am going into a league where you have guys who are 28 years old and older and have families and I am just going to try and stay consistent," Foster said.

Former UT teammate DE Robert Ayers has helped jumpstart the process.

"When he breaks out he is not turning back, and he is one of my good friends. He's a tremendous athlete and he has all the tools to be successful. At Tennessee he was one of those guys where it was like, "When is he going to take off? I feel like he is finally taking a step to being elite."
