General Manager Howie Roseman has spent a lot of time, money, and effort into adding talented pass rushers to the defensive line. It’s almost a tradition for the Philadelphia Eagles to add pass-rushing help on an annual basis, be it in the NFL Draft or free agency. 2021 was no different, and despite their addition of several youthful prospects, we can almost bet on the Birds adding another EDGE defender in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Eagles have a list of talented defensive linemen on their roster. Led by former All-Pro Fletcher Cox, the Philadelphia Eagles have a bevy of offensive nightmares who are just waiting to attack opposing quarterbacks.

Roseman and company landed a potential star in Coastal Carolina’s Tarron Jackson. He’s blessed with all the tools and athletic skill set to be a difference-maker early and often despite being a sixth-round draft pick. Even after drafting Jackson this year, it would behoove the front office to keep an eye on 2022’s pass-rushers.

Demetrius Taylor could be the perfect addition to the Philadelphia Eagles front.

With all this in mind, let us introduce you to Appalachian State edge defender Demetrius Taylor. The six-foot-one and 295-pound rising star is a complete problem for opposing offenses.

Someone who’s capable of being a dominant master of the three-technique at the next level, Taylor is a versatile prospect with a high motor. He also has the football intelligence that coaches covet. Looking forward, NFL teams need to keep an eye on the Miami Native.

The Philadelphia Eagles love players like Taylor. He’s extremely strong against the run and a constant force in the passing game. Due to his film study, Taylor always seems to be in the right place at the right time. When you watch his film, it’s easy to fall in love with his potential and the tools he will bring to the National Football League.
