TEMPE, Ariz. - Wide receiver D.J. Foster and offensive lineman Christian Westerman are set to participate in the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine, held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. from Feb. 23-29.
Foster appeared in all 53 games during his four-year career at Arizona State, and Westerman was a three-year letterwinner at ASU who appeared in 26 games with 25 starts. Both Sun Devils also participated in the 2016 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
Foster is one of only five players in NCAA Division I history to rush and receive for more than 2,000 career yards, as he tallied 4,829 all-purpose yards, including 2,458 receiving yards and 2,355 rushing yards. He finished his career with 222 receptions, second most in school history, and 2,458 receiving yards, sixth most in school history, and recorded at least one reception in all 53 games he played in, the longest streak in Pac-10/12 history. A two-time All-Pac-12 honoree and 2012 freshman All-American, he is one of just three players in ASU history to log 60 or more receptions in consecutive seasons.
Westerman became a part of the foundation of an offensive line that paved the way for back-to-back 1,000-yard rushers from 2014-15. He earned All Pac-12 honors as a junior and senior, including 2015 All-Pac-12 Second Team recognition, and took home the team’s prestigious Randall McDaniel Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award in 2015. He helped the Sun Devils’ offense rank in the top 25 in first downs per game and in the top 30 in explosive plays (plays of 20+ yards) in his final season, and played a pivotal role in the team’s offense in 2014 that recorded a 91-percent conversion rate on red zone trips (12th in the nation) and scored 37 points per game (16th in nation).
Twelve Sun Devil Football student-athletes have been invited to the NFL Combine under head coach Todd Graham, including two in 2016, four in 2015, and three each in 2014 and 2013.
