. . Damone Clark, LSU. 4. player. 817.

Here are two lesser-mentioned potential Eagles targets that we haven’t forgotten.

It’s amazing how quickly things can change. When the 2021 college football season, just about everyone had Damone Clark on a list of players to watch. Some had him ranked in their top two or three prospects at the position.

Fast forward, and some of those same pundits give him second and third-round grades, citing a spinal fusion surgery that sidelined him during the 2018 season. Wait… Hasn’t he played 35 games since then?

Oh well, if no one will carry Clark’s flag, we’ll do it ourselves. This would be another nice addition to Jonathan Gannon’s defense. Heck, he could have worked in Jim Johnson or Bud Carson’s defense too.

Quay Walker, Georgia. 3. player. 814. . .

Quay Walker had an excellent workout at the most recent NFL Scouting Combine, and that’s helped what was already seen as late-first-round to early-second-round draft stock. He’ll make his next employer very happy.

It doesn’t look like he misses tackles. Pro Football Focus says he only missed seven while racking up 137 during his 37-game career. Birds fans will like that, especially after seeing some of what they’ve been subjected to at the linebacker position for much of the past few seasons.
