Potential Eagles draft prospect Jamaree Salyer, Georgia

Nothing puts promising NFL prospects on radars more successfully than being one of the best players on a college football team that’s loaded with guys who are destined to be playing on Sundays.

Week after week, former Georgia Bulldogs standout Jamaree Salyer lined up against some of the best defensive talents that the nation has to offer while cutting his teeth in the Southeastern Conference. After helping his team hoist the College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy, the National Football League, agents, and scouts are sure to have this young man on their radars.

He earned Second-Team All-SEC honors and an American Football Coaches Association Second-Team All-American Team nod in 2021.

Potential Eagles draft prospect Zion Johnson, Boston College

Former Boston College star Zion Johnson played the left guard position in his final season with the Eagles and was solid, but he struggled with speed rushers. His run blocking is ahead of his pass blocking at this point of his development, and that’s sometimes a determining factor in teams moving guys from the left side of an offensive line to its right side.

This young man is six-foot-three and tips the scales at 316 pounds. He was a First-Team All-American that earned First-Team All-ACC honors in 2021.
