If you pay any attention to ITI, you’ve seen or read Kyle Dugger’s name before. Our staff likes him. The Philadelphia Eagles will like him too. Do you want numbers? He gives you those. In 2019, he brought the guy with the football down 31 times while picking off two passes and breaking up four more.
Oh, you’re looking for the guy with the prototypical frame? How about this? Dugger stands at six-feet-tall, and he weighs 217 pounds.
Oh, you’re still not convinced? How about a nice showing in Indy? He put up 17 reps on the bench press and scored marks of 42 inches in the vertical jump and 134 inches in the broad jump before running the 40-yard dash in impressive 4.49 seconds. Dugger is a can’t miss prospect in April’s draft, and if he stays healthy, he’s potentially a perennial All-Pro.
He’s also one of the valedictorians of this year’s safety class and, with no disrespect intended to the aforementioned Jeremy Chinn, he’s the best safety in the 2020 NFL Draft not named Grant Delpit or Xavier McKinney. You can write that down.
