Trey Sermon could add another layer of talent to the Philadelphia Eagles.
At six-foot-one and 215 pounds, Ohio State running back Trey Sermon would be the perfect change-up at tailback for a team that already features Miles Sanders. With the ability to be both a power back and someone that can help in the short-yardage game and as someone who possesses the pure speed to run away from defenders, Sermon could seriously boost the Eagles’ offense.
Blessed with the great vision offensive coaches look for in their tailbacks, Sermon is patient while allowing his blockers to set up and define a hole to run through. He’s a tremendous blocker in the passing game and has the nasty style of play to punish defenders. The Philadelphia Eagles would be lucky to land such a talented runner in the fifth-round.
On the other hand, Cincinnati Bearcats safety James Wiggins is a six-foot, 205-pound defensive weapon that’s a sideline to sideline missile. He could be a difference-maker for the Philadelphia Eagles secondary. The Birds have lacked a playmaker with Wiggins’ skillset and tools since they lost Malcolm Jenkins prior to the 2020 season.
