Could the longshot Adrian Killins Jr. make the end of the Eagles roster or their practice squad? Don’t be surprised if it happens.
One of the NFL‘s slowest teams in 2019, the Philadelphia Eagles made their intentions clear in the most recent draft and with the moves that they made afterward. The goal was to get younger and faster, especially on offense. Jalen Reagor, John Hightower, and Quez Watkins all heard their names called over three days. Philly also traded for Marquise Goodwin on Day 3. Then, Michael Warren II, Khalil Tate, Manasseh Bailey, and Adrian Killins Jr. were all added shortly after Round 7 concluded.
That “slow receiver corps” the Eagles have sure looks a lot faster now, especially when you factor in DeSean Jackson’s expected to return in 2020, but the battle at running back might be something “Birds” fans want to pay attention to.
Miles Sanders is a lock to make the roster, but past that, everything’s up in the air. Boston Scott had a nice showing a season ago, but that won’t guarantee a roster spot in 2020. What about Elijah Holyfield? What about Corey Clement? He just signed a one-year deal, but will he make the team? There are no certainties.
You can argue that, with the lineup Philly currently has, Adrian Killins can make the end of the roster or the practice squad, and here are three reasons why that’s the case.
