Round 7 (230): Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA
Conor needs a lot of work, but being 6’8″ and athletic, the Eagles may want to give him a look.
Overview via NFL.com.
"McDermott was an excellent basketball player in high school, but decided his future was instead in the football realm. He dislocated his shoulder in a state title basketball game, however, forcing him to go to a prep school for a year before heading to UCLA. McDermott redshirted his first year in Westwood, joining his brother, Kevin, who is now a long snapper with the Minnesota Vikings. After another year on the bench to add pounds to his basketball frame, McDermott started the final seven games of the 2014 season at left tackle. His game had improved enough in his junior year that Pac-12 coaches voted him second-team all-conference. He repeated that achievement in 2016, starting every game on the left side."
