Might the Philadelphia Eagles find a little help on Notre Dame’s roster?

Sure, there are quite a few of you that can’t believe that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish is in the College Football Playoff. Yes, as mentioned earlier, we know that they lost to the Clemson Tigers in the ACC Championship Game and looked bad doing it, but they’re in and there isn’t a doggone thing that any of us can do about the fact that they’ll be in Arlington on New Year’s Day.

Here are two guys to watch from a pretty impressive roster.

1. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Linebacker

Yes, we’ve heard. the Philadelphia Eagles haven’t taken a linebacker in the first round of any draft since they took Jerry Robinson out of UCLA in 1979. If they stick with that formula, Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah might still be available in Round 2, but he’s probably coming off of boards somewhere in the middle of Round 1.

2. Liam Eichenberg, Offensive tackle

At some point, the Birds need to put some serious thought into how they’re going to protect their signal-callers. Liam Eichenberg would provide some nice depth for them if they’re willing to give him a look. He’s definitely better than Matt Pryor and Brett Toth.

He’s six-foot-six. He tips the scales at 305 pounds. Keep an eye on him on New Year’s Day.
