Charles Snowden could be an exciting weapon for the Philadelphia Eagles.

At six-foot-seven and 245 pounds, Virginia Cavaliers linebacker Charles Snowden is a monster of a man, one that the Philadelphia Eagles could use in a multitude of ways. Built to play in space, Snowden is no regular defender as he runs like a wideout but thumps like a defensive end.

Much like the 2020 first-round selection, Isaiah Simmons, versatility is the key when using a player like Snowden. He’s capable of being a true linebacker roaming the middle of the field. He’s also someone that can be used to defend in passing situations or blitz packages, Snowden is a true multi-faceted weapon.

The Philadelphia Eagles have never had a player with Snowden’s ability, and adding him during the upcoming NFL Draft could go a long way in rolling out a dominant defense.

No, that doesn’t quite cut it. Adding a player like Snowden is a wise move for any team in the National Football League, so if he is available in the middle of 2021’s selection meeting, vice president and general manager Howie Roseman needs to have some plan of attack. The combination of Singleton and Snowden would immediately give the Birds an excellent foundation for their linebacker core.
