If you’re an SEC guy, you’ll love this portion of the list. Here’s a double play from the champs. Michael Divinity Jr. gets us started. He’s a six-foot-two, 240-pound linebacker that can play both inside and on the outside at any defense’s second level.
In 2019, he missed all but five games thanks to a six-game suspension, but in the action that he did see, he tallied 22 tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble. If not for the character concerns and the aforementioned suspension, he’d probably be ranked higher. As of right now, he figures to come off of draft boards between Round 3 and Round 5.
If the Eagles address other needs early, the mid-rounds could provide an opportunity for them to satisfy that hole they seemingly have at the middle linebacker position unless of course, the plan is to go with T.J. Edwards as the starter in 2020.
Jacob Phillips, also of the LSU Tigers is getting a few grades that suggest he could be around in Round 3 or later. If he is and Philly is interested, they get a six-foot-four, 229-pound standout that racked up 113 tackles in his final run with the “Bayou Bengals”.
