For two of the younger Philadelphia Eagles, this is a chance to show and prove.
Two Eagles that we don’t know that well will have an opportunity to prove they deserve a little more mention. Can they seize the opportunity?
3. Ross Pierschbacher
If Ross Pierschbacher‘s name sounds relatively familiar, you’re probably an SEC or an Alabama Crimson Tide fan. He’s a former teammate of a certain quarterback that you may have heard of, Jalen Hurts. There, he was a part of two College Football Playoff National Championship teams (2015, 2017). He was also a two-time All-SEC First Team nod in 2017 and 2018 and an All-SEC Second Team nod in 2016.
Washington made him a fifth-round draft choice in 2019, and though he’s only played in five NFL games, if he can somehow slide past Matt Pryor and Brett Toth on the depth chart, no one should be surprised.
4. Prince Tega Wanogho
Hey, remember this guy? Obviously, someone at the NovaCare Complex watched a ton of Auburn Tigers football in 2019 as the Birds drafted both of Auburn’s starting tackles in 2020’s NFL Draft. Since then, life couldn’t be any more different for both of them.
Driscoll seems to have earned a permanent spot on the roster (if he can stay healthy). Prince Tega Wanogho sits on the practice squad.
We’ve discussed injuries concerning the latter’s name a lot, and rather than lean on him when needed, Philly seems to be more interested in bringing guys in and out of the facility to see if they’re a logical solution to Philly’s quandary along the offensive line. The sky is the limit for this six-foot-five and 309-pound former Second-Team All-SEC nod. Can he grab the bull by the horns?
