Nate Herbig is a name Philadelphia Eagles fans know well.
Julian Good-Jones is in the same position that Nate Herbig was in a year ago at this time. Philly added Herbig as an undrafted free-agent signing following the 2019 NFL Draft. They, no doubt, found him while they were watching a little tape on JJ Arcega-Whiteside.

ESPN named Herbig as a freshman All-American after appearing in all of Stanford’s 13 games with six starts at the left guard position. As a sophomore, he moved to the right guard. There, he started all 13 of the Cardinal’s games and earned a First-team All-Pac-12 nod after the 2017 season.
He missed six games due to injury in 2018 but started the other seven, making six starts at right guard and one start at right tackle. That would earn him a Second-team All-Pac-12 at the end of the 2018 college football season.
As mentioned, Philly took notice, but after a poor showing at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, the decision was made to acquire him post-draft. They love his versatility and toughness, but with so many bodies to juggle, he’s only appeared in two games as a professional. At this point, if he’s to appear in a third, you’d have to imagine that the Eagles are dealing with injuries along the offensive line, something no Eagles fan hopes happens.
