Jack Stoll should take another step, and Cam Jurgens could contribute earlier than expected.

Many will deny this now, but when the Philadelphia Eagles used their second-round draft choice in the most recent NFL Draft on someone who would spend his entire rookie season backing up Jason Kelce, many believed that was a move that could have waited for another year.

No one is saying that anymore. Not only is Cam Jurgens a wise investment. He gets to learn from one of the greatest Eagles ever.

Landon Dickerson has been prone to injuries. Isaac Seumalo missed seven games in 2020 before missing all but three games a year ago. Don’t be shocked if Jurgens gets on the field early and plays well when he does. We wouldn’t expect anything less.

89. player. 54. . . . Jack Stoll, tight end

An undrafted rookie addition in 2021, Jack Stoll wasn’t relied on much to make clutch catches in key moments in year one. Truth be told, he probably won’t be asked to do so in his sophomore season either. Don’t dismiss him as a blocking tight end that lacks a set of hands though.

Stoll, a six-foot-four, 247-pounder tallied four receptions on five targets during his rookie campaign, but we expect him to have a bigger role this time around.

Expect a couple of touchdown receptions. Expect a few grabs that move the chains in key moments. Stoll racked up 61 snags for 657 yards and reached the end zone six times during 29 games at the collegiate level while performing a similar role for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. In all honesty, he may already be what the Philadelphia Eagles are hoping Tyree Jackson becomes.
