Joshua Kaindoh, Florida State. 10. player. 804. . .

One thing that stands out about many of the stars on the Florida State Seminoles football program is they’re really tall. Standing at six-foot-seven and tipping the scales at 265 pounds, former five-star prospect Joshua Kaindoh looks like an NBA small forward. FSU believed that they were getting one of the nation’s next big stars when he signed his letter of intent, but so far, he’s been closer to Dorial Green-Beckham at Missouri than Jadeveon Clowney at South Carolina, minus Green-Beckham’s team dismissal and whatever that was at Oklahoma of course.

The theory by many is this will be the breakout season for Kaindoh, and if it is, that will place him on several NFL radars. Normally, when that happens guys declare for the NFL Draft. Kaindoh, a junior, shouldn’t do that. He needs to stay in school for two more seasons, refine his skills, and enter the draft as the best version of himself in 2022.

Thomas Booker, Stanford. 9. player. 871. . .

We know that the Eagles love scouting the Stanford Cardinal. We know that they have four former members of the Cardinal on their roster right now (JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Zach Ertz, Nate Herbig, and Casey Toohill). If they’re lobbying for their former programs like most alums do and if Philly’s scouts and coaches continue to keep their eyes on the comings and goings of Stanford’s football program, they’re going to take some serious looks at Thomas Booker.

That’s especially true if Barnett, and Miller, and Sweat, and Avery continue to be average. Booker is a six-foot-four and 294-pound junior who racked up 32 total tackles and four sacks as a sophomore.
