LB, T.J. Edwards,Wisconsin
It’s surprising that Edwards wasn’t drafted, especially given his level of production. With 112 tackles as a senior, he finished his career with four-years of 80+ stops. In his last two years, he combined for 22.5 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, 7 picks and 16 pass breakups? Edwards has a real shot at making the final 53-man roster and he isn’t the only one.
RB, Nico Evans, Wyoming
His average of 132 yards per game on the ground ranked third in this year’s draft class and he has the compact, burstful game that the would fit the Eagles perfectly. With 1,325 yards as a senior along with 8 touchdowns, it’s safe to say Evans has the numbers to back up what you see on tape.
OG, Nate Herbig, Stanford
At 6’3, 336 lbs, Herbig has a dominant frame but like Matt Pryor, has a stunning amount of agility considering his size. He’s not the most consistent lineman and would often look a little ‘out of it’ in comparison to his more urgent teammates, but when he’s ‘on’, you can see why the Eagles like him. He has a stout base, plays with a lot of power and has a strong ability to anchor. Herbig could be a leading candidate in that interior guard free-for-all.
