Notre Dame Schedule & Analysis  

1
Isaiah Foskey, DE Jr.

The 6-5, 260-pound senior has the exact right mix of NFL tools to become someone’s dependable pass rusher on the end. He made a splash in 2020 with 4.5 sacks and 20 tackles, and took off in 2021 with 11 sacks, 12.5 tackles for loss, and a whopping six forced fumbles as part of his 38 tackles.

2
Michael Mayer, TE Jr.

6-5, 251. 113 catches, 1,290 yards, (11.4 ypc), 9 TD in two seasons – he should be in the mix for the Mackey Award as the nation’s top tight end

3
Brandon Joseph, S Sr.

6-1, 192. Two-time All-American, two-time All-Big Ten, 129 tackles, 9 INT, 6 broken up passes, 1 fumble recovery, 1 sack, 2.5 TFL in three seasons at Northwestern.

4
Jarrett Patterson, C/OG Sr.

6-4, 307. Top pro prospect as a center or guard, he’s going into his fourth year as a starter, working at center as long as he’s 100% healthy after suffering a torn pectoral muscle.

5
Tyler Buchner, QB Soph.

6-1, 215. 21-of-35 (60%), 298 yards, 3 TD, 3 INT, 46 carries for 336 yards (second the team), 7.3 ypc, 3 TD

Cam Hart, CB Sr.

6-2, 205. 42 tackles last season, 2 INT, 9 broken up passes, 4 TFL

JD Bertrand, LB Jr.

6-1, 230. Team-high 101 tackles last season, 1.5 sacks, 7 TFL, 1 forced fumble, 1 broken up pass

6-6, 335. Last year’s superstar recruit, he started the opener but suffered a knee injury and wasn’t able to come back until the bowl game.
