In a way, it was sort of surprising to see the Eagles wait this long to add another effective pass rusher after using their final pick of the draft on Casey Toohill, but better late than never, right?
Philadelphia’s defense has established a reputation over the years for having one of the top defenses in the NFL, but they can always use another body like Toohill with the capability of applying constant pressure to opposing quarterbacks.
Luckily for Stanford, Toohill saved his best stuff on defense for his final year with the team in 2019 after setting career highs in sacks (eight) to go along with 57 total tackles and 11.5 tackles for loss.
Toohill may need to work on his coverage skills at the NFL level, but his impressive frame along with elite pass-rushing skills makes it easy to see why the Eagles decided to go in this direction for Round 7.
At the moment, Toohill has quite the work cut out for him over the next few months to show Philadelphia he is worthy of earning a roster spot, but at least catching the attention of the Eagles this late in the draft says a lot about the young defender.
