The Eagles add some defensive insurance with their final two picks.

The Eagles are feeling really good about themselves now with Haason Reddick, Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, and Jermaine Johnson in the fold to lock down their defensive end position, but with Tyree Johnson still being on the board on Day 3, he’s too attractive of an option to pass up this late.

This six-foot-four, 240-pounder found his way to the ball carrier 100 times in 40 career games for the Texas A&M Aggies. He also tallied 18 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Jermaine Waller was someone people viewed as a possible Day 2 selection, but a bad showing at the most recent NFL Scouting Combine has hurt him some. He’ll slide through the draft process. Others will rise, and concerns about his speed will begin conversations about whether or not he’s a legitimate NFL corner or someone better suited to play safety.

dark. Next. What about the other UFAs?

Taking him in Round 3 or Round 4 sounds like a gamble. Taking him on Day 3 in Round 6 gives the Eagles some boom or bust potential a la the Jalen Mills selection in Round 7 back in 2016. If you’ll remember, back in the day, there were concerns about him too, and that’s what made him available for the Eagles in Round 7.
