Here are a few guys the Philadelphia Eagles can consider later on during Day 2.

The following three prospects probably could have benefited from great workouts at the NFL Combine, but with its cancellation, they’re still names to consider later on during the draft’s second day.

Kylen Granson, SMU

Here’s a bit of a wild card. Kylen Granson didn’t play the best competition as a member of the SMU Mustangs, but he still worked his rear end off and earned a Senior Bowl invitation. He’s a bit undersized at six-foot-three and 235 pounds, but he’s definitely worth considering if a team wants to add a tight end late on Day 2 or early on Day 3 of the NFL’s next selection meeting.

Tony Poljan, Virginia

Well, we told you that these were some big guys on this list. Add Tony Poljan’s name to that conversation. He’s six-foot-seven and about 258 pounds. Think Cam Newton but an inch taller.

Here, we’re discussing a graduate transfer from the Central Michigan Chippewas that spent his first two seasons playing quarterback before making the move to tight end and trading the maroon and gold of the Chippewas for the orange and blue hues of the Virginia Cavaliers.

In his lone season in Charlottesville, he hauled in 38 receptions for 411 yards. He also found his way into the end zone six times. He received an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl, and if any team is looking to land a tight end late in 2021’s draft, he’ll, no doubt, need to be one that they consider.
