The Philadelphia Eagles close the show with two intriguing boom-or-bust prospects.

Here are two guys we figure to talk about for the rest of the spring and summer discussing, The Philadelphia Eagles add Kyron Johnson and tight end Grant Calcaterra in Round 6.

Kyron Johnson, linebacker (Round 6, Pick 181)

Have you taken the time to do a deep-dive on Kyron Johnson yet? You should. This guy can fly, and he can make plays all over the field if coached up properly.

Johnson spent five seasons in Kansas with the Jayhawks. He appeared in 51 games, and his team only won nine times. That wasn’t his fault though.

From 2017 to 2021, he tallied 193 total tackles, 12.5 sacks, and eight forced fumbles. You wonder about his ability to cover though. He only has five pass breakups on his collegiate resume, and he didn’t intercept a single pass. Still, this is a great pickup for a third-day prospect. Grade: C

Grant Calcaterra, tight end (Round 6, Pick 198)

If Grant Calcaterra is past his history of concussions (and some believe he is), this could wind up being the next great third-day pickup by this Eagles organization. Had he not retired early or had the health concerns, there would have been no way he would have slipped past Round 2 and into Round 6.

Keep an eye on him. If you do so, you might find out that you’re very happy with what you’re seeing. From where we’re sitting, this looks like a nice complement to Dallas Goedert. Think about it. He doesn’t have to be the guy. He just needs to play his role, and he’s more than capable of doing that. Grade: B+
