In 2020, particularly after the NFL Draft, there wasn’t necessarily a buzz surrounding K’Von Wallace, but there was enough being said about him to suggest that he was one of the Philadelphia Eagles’ more intriguing prospects of their 2020 class.

He was a fixture in the Clemson Tigers’ defense, but he had never won any individual accolades or an All-ACC mention. He was a member of the Tigers’ 2016 and 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship teams, but no one really brings him up when we discuss why Clemson hoisted the hardware.

Wallace notched 156 tackles, five interceptions, two sacks, and a touchdown during his college football season. Philly nabbed him in Round 4, and he was called both a reach and a steal at the 127th-overall selection.

We’ve seen Wallace play on special teams as a pro. We’ve also seen him play at the line of scrimmage, in the slot, and at safety for Clemson. K’Von Wallace has a chance at being one of those ‘positionless players’ that Jim Schwartz used to talk about, but the Philadelphia Eagles won’t figure that out unless they coach him up and stick him on the field. Hopefully, we’ll see more contributions in 2020.
