The Eagles clean up on Day 3.

It doesn’t get much better than this Day 3 haul. Take a look.

Round 4, Pick 101: Bryan Cook, Cornerback, Cincinnati

The Cincinnati defense was one of the best in college football last season, and while Ahmad ‘Sauce’ Gardner, Coby Bryant, and Myjai Sanders got the lion’s share of the attention, safety Bryan Cook is someone for NFL teams to watch.

Cook is one of the better safeties in this draft, and with Rodney McLeod moving on and Anthony Harris on a one-year, ‘prove it’ deal, Cook could look to be a long-term replacement at safety.

Round 4, Pick 124: Charlie Kolar, Tight end, Iowa State

Although Dallas Goedert has cemented his place in the starting lineup, the Eagles’ other tight ends leave much to be desired. Enter Charlie Kolar.

Measuring at six-foot-six and hailing from Iowa State, he’s built for a team like the Eagles. This allows Philly to do something they enjoy, bringing in two tight ends in 12 personnel sets (two wide receivers, one running back, two tight ends).

Kolar also has very fluid movement and can gain a lot of run-after-catch yards in the short passing game. He’s a perfect match for Jalen Hurts’ play style.

Round 5, Pick 154: Zamir White, Running back, Georgia

With the Eagles boasting the top rushing offense last season, thanks in part to their current running back corps, Zamir White adds another dimension to the rushing attack. He’s the power rusher this Eagles team is missing.

He can absorb a lot of contact with his large frame and fight for extra yards, but also runs effectively on the outside and has a quick burst of speed. That makes him the presence the Eagles desperately need in their backfield.
