3 Second-day prospects Philadelphia Eagles should keep an eye on
The Philadelphia Eagles need another weapon to boost their passing game.
Tennessee Volunteer wideout Josh Palmer has the coveted size (he’s six-foot-two and 210 pounds) as well the athletic makeup, to be a playmaker in the NFL. He runs great routes. He also has the footwork you rarely see for a man his size.
If the Philadelphia Eagles decide to go receiver early on, Palmer could be the perfect fit. In 42 career games at the collegiate level, he caught 99 passes for 1,514 yards and seven touchdowns. He gained another 37 yards and scored another touchdown on eight rushing attempts.
A vicious opponent with the ball in his hands, the former Volunteer has all the tools to be a dominant force in any offense. Never shying away from contact, he plays big in the middle of the field, often winning with contact.
He has the swagger you can’t teach and the attitude that fits perfectly in the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Although he has gone overshadowed, which has mostly been due to the lack of success by his team, his contributions have been consistent.
The Philadelphia Eagles need to address their receiver room in the 2021 NFL Draft. Adding Palmer to the offense could give the Birds a potential star at the next level. He could be the perfect investment in a draft that is loaded with talent.
