2. player. 841. . . . Dontario Drummond, Ole Miss

Before his injury, Ole Miss gunslinger Matt Corral had a lot of dots connected between his names and quite a few NFL teams in Round 1. Perhaps, from the Eagles’ standpoint, we should have been discussing Dontario Drummond. He makes a ton of sense if the Birds are looking to add a wide receiver on Day 3.

He ran a 4.65-second 40-yard dash at the most recent NFL Scouting Combine, and in his final 12 games for the Rebels, he hauled in 76 receptions for 1,028 yards. He also reached the end zone eight times. If that translates to the NFL, watch out.

Romeo Doubs and David Bell are the Eagles’ top Day 3 wide receiver prospects.

Nevada Wolf Pack quarterback Carson Strong is someone you should make note of as he’s been given draft grades that range from Round 3 to Round 5. He completed 70 percent of his passes in 2021 while throwing for 4,186 yards and 36 touchdowns. 11 of those touchdowns and 1,109 of those yards can be credited to one of the potential sleepers in this draft, wideout Romeo Doubs.

First team All-Mountain West Conference nods don’t seem to be as cool as All-SEC mentions. They are special and a sign of achievement though, and Doubs has two of them after what he was able to accomplish in 2020 and 2021.
