Here are two quarterback prospects that no doubt have the Philadelphia Eagles’ attention.
The NFL scouts won’t be evacuating Pittsburgh just because Kenny Pickett isn’t there anymore. At six-foot-three and 210 pounds, Kedon Slovis enters his final season at the NCAA level as a transfer from USC hoping to prove that he has what it takes to lead an NFL team.
In 2020, he completed 67 percent of his passes during six in-game appearances while throwing for 1,921 yards on 177 completions. He tossed 17 touchdowns versus seven picks.
Last season didn’t go according to plan. He missed time due to injury and didn’t play well when he was on the field. He has a lot riding on the 2022 season.
Hendon Hooker makes the cut. Now, it’s time to see if he’s among the cream that rises to the top of college football’s quarterback mixture.
2021 was what you can consider a breakout season. After transferring from the Virginia Tech Hokies, he completed 68 percent of his passes for the Tennessee Volunteers in the mighty SEC. The stat line reads as follows: 2,945 yards passing, 616 yards rushing, 31 passing touchdowns versus only three interceptions, and five rushing touchdowns.
Everyone will be watching to see how his collegiate story ends. Throw the Eagles and their scouting department in that bunch.
