861. . . . Round 6: Khyiris Tonga, BYU. . player

The Philadelphia Eagles need to add depth to their defensive front ASAP.

Brigham-Young University defensive tackle Khyiris Tonga has all the tools to be a tone-setter for years to come. Built to be a space-eater (he’s six-foot-four and 321-pounds), Tonga has natural speed to go along with his violent punch at the point of contact. Adding the Utah native could be a move the Eagles defense has been looking for.

Imagine the former Cougar lined up next to Fletcher Cox for a second. That should have most Eagles fans grinning. As a duo, they could be a dominant force for opposing offenses for years to come. What stands out most is Tonga’s ability to rush the passer and destroy run plays. He isn’t just a big man in the middle. He can be a productive prospect moving forward.

Could Simi Fehoko be the Philadelphia Eagles’ play at 224?

Imagine a wideout that stands six-foot-four and tips the scales at 225-pounds, one that runs a blistering 4.3-second 40-yard dash. Would you want that on your roster? Well if you do, then look no further than Stanford wide receiver Simi Fehoko. He’s a big-bodied weapon that has the speed to constantly separate from defenders as well as the raw strength to dominate.

The Eagles would be wise to land all the talented weapons that they can if they are ever going to consistently compete in the NFC.

Oregon’s Deommodore Lenoir could be a steal for the Philadelphia Eagles at 225.

Here’s a five-foot-eleven, 195-pound defensive back out of Oregon that has all the tools needed to be successful at the next level. When watching his film, it becomes apparent very quickly that it is just as hard to catch a pass on him as it is to spell his name. Deommodore Lenoir has been overshadowed through the years, but if he’s available this late, the front office should sprint to the podium and call his name.
