The Philadelphia Eagles add some depth up front with Chandon Herring.

The Eagles offensive line is in an interesting position. The group was downright abysmal last year, but injuries can offer a serviceable explanation for the down year. In 16 games, the Eagles rolled out 14 different offensive line combinations.

Still, last year showed the importance of depth in the trenches. It’s tough to imagine a scenario where the Eagles don’t take an offensive lineman in the 2021 NFL Draft, and in this simulation, they wait until the very last round to take one.

While this is a seventh-round selection, Herring has the potential to be a solid rotational piece in the offensive line. He’ll fall because of his age (25), but he’s certainly worth a Day 3 selection. He has excellent height at six-foot-seven and can play guard or tackle.

He has the athleticism to get to the second level with ease and has solid footwork. Herring’s ceiling is awfully limited as he is 25, but the Eagles already drafted Prince Tega Wanogho last year who is a massive developmental project.

The BYU product is as pro-ready of a prospect as you are going to get in the seventh round. That alone makes him worth a look with the 225th pick of the draft.
