Polish: Foston is a physical, downhill runner with lateral quickness but has a lack of top-end speed. He is physical and runs well behind his pads. He can become a true grind it out back as he adds to the frame. 

Bottom Line: Amaad Foston is a talented running back with a physical demeanor, but he lacks top-end speed. He utilizes a one-cut style of play and gets north and south in a hurry. He uses a physically developed frame to carry the ball deep into the game. He projects as a Power 5 starter over the course of his career.
