The Eagles add solid depth pieces on the final day of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Once you reach the fourth round of any NFL Draft, the goal is to, hopefully, add key contributors. If NFL teams are successful, it can feel like lottery winnings.

Names like Marquis Hayes and the others mentioned here are on a list of Day 3 prospects that you’ll want to familiarize yourselves with over the next day or so if you haven’t already. Hayes is among the best pass protectors in the class and, according to PFF, only allowed only 35 pressures in three years as a starter at the collegiate level.

Simulation 2: Jake Ferguson (Wisconsin tight end)

It’s doubtful that Jake Ferguson would ever say this about a teammate, so we’re going to state it for him. This six-foot-five, 250-pound prospect is something to behold and potentially a future household name among NFL fans, but what’s been unfortunate about his ride through the NCAA level is he’s more often than not been held back by inconsistent or below-average play from the quarterbacks he’s shared the field with.

He’d easily be a TE2 for Philadelphia though. He’s already a better tight end than JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Tyree Jackson.

Simulation 3: Verone McKinley (Oregon safety)

Verone McKinley can be forgotten about when discussing a college football program that’s more known for its offense, but this young man possesses serious ball skills for a safety, racking up 169 total tackles, 11 interceptions (including six in 2021), ten pass breakups (six of those came in 2021 as well), and two forced fumbles in his final three seasons/24 games at the NCAA level.
