The Philadelphia Eagles defense needs all the pass-rushers they can get.

The Philadelphia Eagles could use a couple of additions to their pass-rush. Georgia Southern edge defender Raymond Johnson III has all the tools to be a force for in the NFL. The six-foot-three, 270-pound prospect can kick inside to dominate the offensive guard or come off the edge to put fear in a quarterback’s heart. Between Dayo Odeyingbo and Johnson, the Philly pass rush would be a dominant front.

The Eagles need to find a prospect with Johnson’s talent to help them compete moving forward.

Tre’ McKitty wraps things up for the Philadelphia Eagles at 240.

Whether the Eagles want to move on or stick with Zach Ertz, they need to add depth to their tight-end room. Georgia Bulldog Tre’ McKitty has the size (six-foot-five 245-pounds) and raw ability to be a great addition to Philly’s offense. An underrated route runner, blocker, and all-around talent. The former Bulldog has all the tools to be the next big-name tight end in the NFL.
