The Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t roll the dice on a Stanford Cardinal defensive end for the second year in a row, or would they?
Currently, the Philadelphia Eagles have four former members of the Stanford Cardinal on the current roster, offensive lineman Nate Herbig, tight end Zach Ertz, wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and newly-drafted defensive end Casey Toohill. Someone at the NovaCare Complex watches a lot of Stanford football.
If the “Birds” were to draft Thomas Booker in 2021, it would be the third straight year that Philly took a member of the Cardinal in the selection meeting and the second straight year that they took one that played the defensive end position. Booker could even wind up being a better prospect than Toohill was.
Patrick Jones has 70 total tackles, five forced fumbles, and 12.5 sacks on his resume after a 29-game run that covers three seasons. His will be a name that gets thrown around in not only ACC circles but in every other NCAA circle as well.
If he played in the SEC for someone like the Alabama Crimson Tide or the LSU Tigers, we’d be talking about him every fifteen minutes, but you know the saying. If you can play, people will find you. NFL scouts are going to be watching a lot of Pittsburgh Panthers football in 2020. Credit Mr. Jones for that.
