Eagles must place these UGA Bulldogs on their NFL Draft board right now
MIght Broderick Jones and Warren McClendon wind up as enrollees at Stoutland University?
We can’t remember where we heard this first, but regardless of who the author was, the theory has proven to be accurate over and over again. A good NFL team can never have too many good offensive linemen.
Seeing the Eagles struggle with Lane Johnson out of the lineup has probably taught you that. Knowing that Isaac Seumalo and Andre Dillard are free agents after this season has probably allowed you to arrive where we are as well. It wouldn’t be a bad thing if Philly added a versatile offensive lineman in the draft.
Broderick Jones is a six-foot-four, 315-pound monster. He’s played at left tackle for UGA, but with his size, he could play inside at guard at the professional level… maybe.
Warren McClendon, at six-foot-four and 315 pounds, probably won’t be valued as highly as Jones by draft pundits. Still, he’s an intriguing prospect in his own right.
As is the case with Jones, McClendon is a tackle that some may see as a better fit at guard for the next level. He should be available on Day 3 if the Birds elect to address other needs before adding to the O-line later.
