Might the Philadelphia Eagles show any interest in any of these Gator prospects?

This year sure is flying by, isn’t it? March is nearing its end, and that means April is upon us. For Philadelphia Eagles fans and most of the fans of the other 31 NFL teams, that means the prevailing thought in their minds will be what they’re expecting their team to do in the league’s annual selection meeting.

If you’re a Birds fan, you’ve, no doubt, heard one name a lot. That name belongs to Kyle Pitts of the Florida Gators. One of the draft’s ‘sure things’, Pitts is intriguing as he’d make transitioning from Zach Ertz pretty close to seamless. He’s also one of the most talented and versatile offensive weapons in the entire draft.

It was a challenging year for the guys from The Swamp, but they can hold their heads high. They would have won the SEC had it not been for that team from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and an 8-4 mark while dealing with COVID-19 and the gauntlet that is the SEC is nothing to sneeze at.

If Philly doesn’t go with Pitts at six, he definitely won’t still be on the board when they pick again in Round 2, but if they look around the Gators’ roster, there are some other viable options in terms of potential prospects.

Throw Stone Forsythe‘s name in that discussion, He’s a six-foot-seven, 329-pound offensive tackle who should be available in the middle rounds. Philly has a lot of tackles though, so with that being said, here are six other guys they may want to consider. We begin with an interior offensive lineman.
