Heading into 2020’s version of NFL training camp, Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox named what he believed to be every NFL team’s best undrafted rookie free agent acquisition, and while guys like Adrian Killins and Grayland Arnold have created quite the stir in Philly, he chose Raequan Williams. He’s a six-foot-four and 305-pound defensive tackle out of the Big Ten who cut his teeth in a very proud Michigan State Spartans program.

Unfortunately for Williams, he’s undrafted, and the Eagles are probably only keeping four defensive tackles. To make matters worse, their top four choices at the position are already locked in. Nobody on this team is leapfrogging Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave, and Malik Jackson for one of the top three spots. The “Birds” also signed Hassan Ridgeway to a one-year extension this past offseason.

To make long stories short, on any other NFL roster, Williams probably has a shot at making the end of the roster or the practice squad. With this Eagles team, it’s hard to make an argument where Williams outplays Bruce Hector or Anthony Rush when both of those guys have been around the franchise for a while.
