Travis Raciti, San Jose State
Although it isn’t a big need, the Eagles could use some depth along their defensive line. Defensive linemen Travis Raciti from San Jose State could certainly fit what the team is looking for up front on defense. He has a slim, athletic build for a traditional defensive linemen but he certainly plays like a prospect that would make perfect sense for the Eagles. At 6’5″, 285 lbs., Raciti flies off the ball and plays with a high motor.
Raciti showcases his athletic ability on the field by chasing down plays even if they weren’t ran to his side of the field. That’s the kind of effort you want to have from a defensive linemen, something that will set the tone for the rest of a defense. If he’s rotating in like defensive end Brandon Bair was doing for the Eagles in 2014, Raciti could be a dangerous weapon on the Eagles’ defensive line.
They’re clearly interested in the likely day three pick as they brought him in to the NovaCare Complex for a pre-draft visit, according to this report:
