The NFL Draft has come to a close and for the Eagles, it ended in a predictable fashion. The team decided to go all-in on another athletic defensive tackle to add to its ever-growing arsenal in the way of Moro Ojomo.
Ojomo made 30 career starts for Texas and ended 2022 with 32 tackles, 5.5 TFL, and 3 sacks. He’s a versatile lineman who displays an explosive get-off and enough power to execute rushes and swallow up double teams. His RAS score came in at 9.28, and we all know the Eagles love their hyper-athletes. At 6’2, 293 lbs, he’s a little lighter which does aid his agility, although he made some added mass to dominate NFL tackles.
The Eagles actually waived DT Marvin Wilson prior to making the pick which perhaps gave their strategy away. They wanted to replace him with a fresh face in Moro Ojomo.
The selection of Moro Ojomo brings a conclusion to our 2023 NFL Draft coverage, but don’t panic. We’ll have a full UDFA tracker and analysis on each pick coming up over the course of the weekend.
