The Philadelphia Eagles are fully capable of finding a good tight end late.

Here’s the bottom half of the top ten. Expect these guys to be available on Day 3.

10. Matt Bushman, BYU

Matt Bushman ripped his Achilles tendon to shreds during 2020’s preseason and rather than take a medical redshirt, he declared for the draft. All of that and the fact that he was probably a Day 2 selection anyway probably means that he slides to Day 3

9. Nick Eubanks, Michigan

Nick Eubanks didn’t haul in a ton of passes for the Michigan Wolverines. Try ten receptions in 2020 and 45 for his 24-game career on for size, but he’s a capable blocker. You also have to believe, at six-foot-five and 256 pounds that he’d make a great red-zone target if someone allows him to be one.

8. Trae Barry, Jacksonville State

Any quarterback looking for a red-zone target has to look at the six-foot-seven, 235-pound Trae Berry and salivate. Every game has been an opportunity for him to show that he’s as athletic as he is rangy, and he’s done just that throughout his collegiate career.

7. Tony Poljan, Virginia

This former quarterback looks to make his foray into the NFL as a tight end, where he spent the last two seasons of his 44-game career. Two seasons at the position at both Central Michigan and Virginia produced 83 receptions for 1,129 yards and 12 touchdowns.

6. Quintin Morris, Bowling Green

Quintin Morris played well during a five-game season for Bowling Green in 2020. That earned him a Senior Bowl invitation. Expect him to come off of the board on Day 3.
