The Stanford Cardinal are infiltrating the 2021 NFL Draft in waves as tackle Foster Sarell has opted for the NFL instead of returning next fall.

First and foremost, I would like to thank my Heavenly Father for blessing me with so many wonderful people and opportunities in my life. He has been my rock throughout the good and bad, and I can’t wait to see what He has in store for me.

Second, I would like to thank Coach Shaw, Coach Carberry, Coach Tavita and all of the Stanford football staff for all of their support and coaching over the past four years. I would also like to say thank you to all of the Stanford support staff that was instrumental in helping me be successful on and off the field. Lastly, I would like to say thank you to my family who stuck by my side in good and in bad. Supporting me when it seemed all odds were stacked against me; I wouldn’t be here today without you guys.

Finally, I want to say thank you to my teammates who I had the privilege to play with over the past four years. It was an honor, and I wouldn’t have wanted to go to battle with anyone else. With that being said I have decided to enter my name into the 2021 NFL Draft. Thank you to everyone who has helped me along this journey, and I am excited for what God has in store for me at the next level.

Sarell started 17 of 18 games that he played over the past four seasons, including 15 straight games. He was named an All-Pac-12 honorable mention a season ago and will enter the NFL with a degree in political science, a degree he just obtained in November.

Integral in every bit of the Cardinal offense this season, Sarell was a key cog in keeping Davis Mills clean this season and helped get Mills to over 1,500 yards passing this year. He’s long-since been one of the best Pac-12 tackles and ranks up there with the likes of Penei Sewell, Andre Dillard and Austin Jackson.

His highlight-reel is surely something:

Go get ‘em, Foster — we’ll be rooting for you every step of the way!
