The Eagles add a power back to their running back room.
Philly’s brass seems to disagree, but everyone else is in love with the idea of adding a workhorse style of running back. They’ve wanted one since LeGarrette Blount left, and Zamir White can give them what they’re looking for, someone who can pick up tough yards on third-and-short and chew clock if the Birds are up late and trying to kill the clock in the fourth quarter.
This is a violent runner that possesses both size and explosiveness. Some teams employ two guys to represent the ‘thunder’ and ‘lightning’ in their running back room. With White, you get both, and it’s all wrapped up into one guy.
Simulation 2: DeAngelo Malone (Western Kentucky EDGE)
DeAngelo Malone is a solid late-round option. In 2021, he notched 94 tackles. nine sacks, four pass breakups, and four forced fumbles.
If years from now, we’re discussing Malone’s brilliance and how wrong we all were in his evaluation, don’t be shocked.
Simulation 3: Tyler Goodson (Iowa running back)
Take everything that was said about the Zamir White selection, insert Tyler Goodson’s name where White’s name is, and slide the evaluation here. They’re similar in a lot of ways and had they played for each other’s team instead of their own, the results probably would have been the same.
Tyler Goodson should be available at this point of the draft, and if he winds up being Philly’s selection, they should consider themselves to be lucky that they’ve added him.
