The Philadelphia Eagles had better do some research on these Pac-12 prospects.

First, they were going to cancel the 2020 college football season. Then, they decided to play. It was a stressful and emotional season for the Pac-12 and all of the young men that elected to play college football there. It was a win for the fans though, even if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan that found out that staying up to the early hours of Sunday morning to watch their games was a difficult task.

They may not always get the same love from the East Coast that the SEC or Big Ten gets, but the young men of the Pac-12 ball out. COVID-19 and the concerns about it led to a shortened season in 2020, but the proud programs of this Power Five conference should be back in full force once the games count against the win-loss total in 2021.

In the meantime, here are five potential late-round prospects that fall into the ‘boom or bust’ category. Might they be viable options for an Eagles team with six selections in the final three rounds?
