The Philadelphia Eagles could use some help on the edge. Here are ten NCAA prospects who pair well with Brandon Graham.
Some stories can be written before we watch them unfold. Most Philadelphia Eagles fans knew that even though Brandon Graham would put up stellar numbers in 2019, he’d be ignored by much of the national media and snubbed by the Pro Bowl voters. We knew as the NCAA season went on that Chase Young was a top-five pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
We all hit the nail on the head on both counts.
The Ohio State Buckeyes keep churning out the stars at defensive end, and as expected, Graham wasn’t on the Pro Bowl roster or named as an All-Pro at season’s end. He continues to be one of the most talented and underappreciated stars in football.
Let’s all rewind the tape a little further. Before the 2019 season, the Eagles allowed Michael Bennett to walk and Chris Long to retire. That came back to haunt them as outside of a few timely plays that were few and far between by guys like Vinny Curry and Josh Sweat, Graham was the Eagles’ lone threat on the edge.
Philly got nothing out of rookie Shareef Miller, and now with the need to retool for a run in 2020, they need depth at defensive end. Here are ten guys who could give them some. Pay attention. You’re going to hear a lot about him between now and April’s NFL Draft.
