Philadelphia Eagles tight end Jack Stoll

An undrafted rookie out of the Nebraska Cornhuskers program, where he snagged 61 career receptions for 657 yards and reached the end zone six times, Jack Stoll joined the Philadelphia Eagles shortly after the curtain drew on 2021’s version of the NFL selection meeting. How about this though? He was rumored to have been given the healthiest contract of all of the undrafted free agents that were signed.

Might that mean anything? A week ago, it seemed as though the best-case scenario for this young man was that all roads would lead to the practice squad. Truthfully, that’s probably still his best-case scenario but get this. Tyree Jackson’s injury means that Stoll figures to get a few more reps and, quite possibly, some shine time as we move through the final two games of the Philadelphia Eagles’ preseason slate.

Stoll is every bit the mountain of a man that Jackson and Croom are. He’s three inches shorter than Jackson and an inch shorter than Croom, but while Jackson weighs 249 pounds compared to Croom’s 246-pound frame, Stoll tips the scales at 260 pounds. Again, Hurts shouldn’t have any problem finding him.

Don’t scribble Stoll onto your 53-man roster projections yet, but this is the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles that we’re discussing. Anything can happen, especially from an injury standpoint. Don’t be shocked if Stoll is someone we discuss quite often during the 2021-2022 season.
