Eagles offensive targets

Teven Jenkins, OT/OG, Oklahoma State:

Seen as a first-round talent by many, Jenkins takes a bit of a slide into the second round. The Oklahoma State prospect is a mauler, he plays every snap with intensity and violence. Brett Kollman, host of The Film Room, Described Jenkins as a “dominate lineman, who looks to finish off blocks with hatred towards defensive lineman.” The 6’6, 320-pound lineman fits the Eagles gap/power blocking scheme and has played across the offensive line starting at right guard, left tackle, and right tackle (his natural position). The Eagles value versatility across the line and prioritize the trenches if Jenkins is still available at No. 37, I believe he will be the pick.

Quinn Meinerz, OG/C, Wisconsin-Whitewater:

Meinerz put Wisconsin-Whitewater on the map this offseason. A small school standout, Meinerz dominated the senior bowl practices and impressed scouts from all 32 teams. If you want to have a few laughs check out his film, he bullied defensive lineman at the Division III level. I would not be at all surprised to see Meinerz do the same in the NFL. It’s been reported the Eagles love him as a prospect and he could fit as a replacement for Jason Kelce.

Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU

Once thought of as a first-round pick Marshall is falling on draft boards. Marshall has ideal size (6’2, 205), and could play the X receiver role in the Eagles offense. A National Champion, Marshall played a key role in the Tigers’ 2019 title run. He’s a good athlete and solid route runner but does not use his size effectively. The Eagles will not be prioritizing WR at No.37, so I think it’s unlikely he’ll be the pick. The Eagles could do a lot worse than Marshall though.

Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC:

The name may sound familiar, St. Brown is one of many prospects this year with NFL bloodlines. His brother, Equanimeous St. Brown is a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers. The USC prospect is a good ballplayer, versatile tool and a refined/technical route runner. Amon-Ra is will be a solid player in the league for years to come.

Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina

Carter has a lot of wiggle to his game. He has excellent vision and is more than just a third-down back. This would certainly bolster the Eagles RB room, but I don’t see the Eagles making this pick unless he slides.

Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina

He is a tackle-breaking machine, but please wait till day 3 for a running back. Also, Williams is incredible in pass protection, which is immensely valuable in this offense.

Pat Freiermuth, TE, Penn State:

I wasn’t initially a fan of Freiermuth, but I can confidently say I was wrong after studying his film. In the passing game, he can play inline, on the wing, in the slot. He has good instincts and is always in the right place. The Penn State alum is a willing/capable blocker and should be a reliable starter. I believe Freiermuth has been undervalued throughout this draft. He has a lot of similar traits to Zach Ertz but he can break a tackle.

Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami

Jordan could immediately contribute in the passing game. He is not the most polished route runner but Jordan is impossible to Tackle. He is the most gifted YAC tight end in this class (yes, you read that right). Kyle Pitts is incredible but Brevin Jordan runs like he’s angry at the ground.

Up next

The Eagles should have an excellent chance to get talented players in Day 2. I hope Howie Roseman can keep the momentum from last night going.

The second round of the Draft will kick off at 7PM EST. Don’t forget to check out our coverage LIVE on our YouTube channel!
