Did we mention the Philadelphia Eagles need to find more pass-rushers?

Boston College pass-rusher Max Roberts is a terror off of the edge that would boost the Philadelphia Eagles defensive attack immediately. What the six-foot-one and 250-pound edge defender lacks in size, he more than makes up for in natural ability.

Much like first-time Pro-Bowler Brandon Graham (it’s about time), Max Roberts has a motor that doesn’t quit, and despite being short by NFL standards, he’s one of the best pass-rushers in the 2021 NFL Draft. You can write that down.

He’s capable of stone-walling an opposing offense’s running game on his way to the quarterback. Roberts also has a football intelligence that can’t be matched.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ defense houses two game-changing defensive ends in Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat. Unfortunately, after that, as they do with so many other positions, they have more questions than answers.

Max Roberts possesses the natural tools and skillset defensive coordinators covet in their defensive ends as well as an ability to always be in the right place at the right time.

Adding the pass-rushing monster to Philly’s nest in the 2021 NFL Draft along with these other four guys would give the Eagles a defensive room that’s full of potential and a few possible stars in the making at the next level.
