While all the big name prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft are getting the national attention, let’s not forget about the “small school” prospects. The Philadelphia Eagles certainly haven’t forgot, as they’ve shown quite a bit of interest in some lesser known prospects that could have a big impact at the next level.
Of course it isn’t the “sexy” thing to do in terms of scouting but this is how people in the business make their name. Not many teams were looking at Arizona Cardinals wide receiver John Brown last year when he was coming out of Pittsburgh State University. But he had an impressive rookie season, as Eagles’ fans sadly know all too well. Finding talent in the later rounds of the draft or even as undrafted free agents is a key part in the scouting process.
The Eagles have certainly been doing their homework on some small school prospects, here are five prospects to watch for during the 2015 NFL Draft.
