10 Philadelphia Eagles NCAA prospects who could replace Jordan Howard
Kylin Hill was one of the bright spots in a disappointing Mississippi State Bulldogs 2019 season as he racked up 1,347 rushing yards and hauled in 17 receptions for another 174 yards while reaching the end zone ten times on the ground and once through the air.
Hill is a blend of size and speed as he stands at five-foot-eleven and weighs 215 pounds. He figures to be a second-round or a third-round selection come April. If Philly is interested in taking a running back early, unlikely but possible, Hill could be one that’s work taking a look at.
Lamical Perine did all that he could despite the fact that he was running behind a young and experienced offensive line in his final season with the Florida Gators. This five-foot-eleven, 218-pound prospect averaged 5.1 yards per rush while rushing for 676 yards, and he scored six touchdowns.
As a receiver, he hauled in 40 receptions for 262 yards and scored five touchdowns. The analysis differs depending on who you read or who you listen to. Some see him as a second-round selection and some say that he’s a fourth, but if he lands in a nice spot and receives good coaching, he could wind up being a nice reserve back in the NFL.
