Do you still believe in K’Von Wallace as a Philadelphia Eagles fan?
In 45 career games at the collegiate level with the Clemson Tigers, K’Von Wallace racked up 156 totals, including 108 of the solo variety. Add that to two sacks, two forced fumbles, 15 pass breakups, and five interceptions, and you can see why the Philadelphia Eagles were excited about this guy in the first place.
Two of the theories about Wallace were the following. One, the expectation was that his versatility (being able to play in the slot, deep, or at the line of scrimmage) would make him a valuable prospect. The second thing was this. There were some concerns about his size and speed that led to him falling to the Birds in Round 4.
Let’s just say that K’Von Wallace’s success hasn’t translated to the professional level yet. During his rookie season in 2020, he appeared in 15 games with three starts. He was on the field for 18 percent of the defensive snaps (202) and 50 percent of the special teams snaps (221). The result was 21 total tackles and a fumble recovery.
Wallace’s second season should lead to bigger and brighter things. The question is this. How will he get more playing time? No one should be surprised if he does, but no one should be surprised if he doesn’t either. This is a young man with a lot to prove in 2021.
