Potential Eagles EDGE prospect Cameron Thomas, San Diego State
No one would blame you if you were one of those Philadelphia Eagles fans that doesn’t have much to contribute to conversations about former San Diego State EDGE star Cameron Thomas. Let’s not pretend that any of us spend a ton of time watching Mountain West Football.
The last time Philadelphia fished in the Aztecs’ pool of talent, they nabbed Donnel Pumphrey. Let’s just say things never worked out with that selection. Don’t hold that against every prospect that plays there though, especially Cameron Thomas.
This six-foot-five, 275-pound prospect has been dubbed ‘the Aidan Hutchinson of the Mountain West’ and has even drawn comparisons to J.J. Watt from time to time. We’ll see how accurate some of those statements are as we move through the draft process.
Potential Eagles EDGE prospect Logan Hall, Houston
In 2021, an already impressive Logan Hall really took off. The Houston Cougars moved him all over their defensive line and found results wherever they placed him.
At the pro level, teams could find some success by putting him at his natural defensive end position on the outside or by sliding him inside to wreak havoc on obvious passing situations on third-and-long. He’s that talented. Just look at his numbers.
In 34 career games at the collegiate level, he racked up 97 total tackles. That includes 50 of the solo variety and 19.5 that resulted in a loss of yardage. He also registered seven sacks, six of which came in his final season in 2021. Keep an eye on him during the Senior Bowl and the coming NFL Scouting Combine.
