Eagles fans aren’t going to find Cameron Dantzler to be an attractive option because of his slow 40-yard dash time. He ran a 4.64 in Indianapolis during the most recent NFL Scouting Combine, but he still has a resume that says he’s worth a look.
In 31 career games with the Mississippi State Bulldogs, he racked up 108 total tackles, 20 pass breakups, and five career picks. He figures to slide during the selection meeting because of that slow 40 time though.
Noah Igbinoghene may not be able to impede the progress of some of the bigger wideouts or battle them for some of the 50-50 balls that get thrown his way because of his five-foot-ten, 198-pound frame, but he’s probably still going to hear his name called sometime between Round 2 and Round 3.
He’s only got one interception on his 39-game collegiate resume, so he may not be much of a playmaker either.
Does anyone else remember when LSU Tigers cornerback Kristian Fulton was mentioned as a possibility for “The Birds” at 21? That was the theory of Pro Football Focus’ Michael Renner back in December.
Well, a lot has changed since then. Half of the world believes the Eagles seem to be tuned into the idea of taking a wideout, and at best Fulton might be a Day 2 draftee. We’ll have to wait and see if that’s an accurate assessment.
