Tuli Tuipulotu and Myles Murphy may not be worth spending a top-ten choice on, but if they trade back, these are two names to watch.

Both Ty Detmer and Koy Detmer played for the Philadelphia Eagles, and if Tuli Tuipulotu winds up checking all of the boxes (and if the chips fall correctly and the stars align), he could join his older brother, Marlon Tuipulotu, in the City of Brotherly Love. It isn’t impossible.

Marlon has some work to do, but he’s on his way. While visions of a dominant inner and outer tandem featuring these two brothers sounds like a nice story, what’s most important is whether or not both guys can play, especially if they wind up in the midnight green together.

The USC Trojans forgot to play defense sometimes this season, but you can’t blame Tuli for that. He wound up with 46 tackles, 13.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and three pass breakups en route to several postseason honors: the Polynesian Football Player of the Year Award, the Pat Tillman Defensive Player of the Year, the Morris Trophy, Unanimous All-American honors, and a First-Team All-Pac 12 nod (his second).

Myles Murphy is universally regarded as one of the top three EDGE prospects in this year’s draft class, and some have graded him as high as the second best. His teammate Bryan Bresee is ranked as the second-highest-ranked interior defensive lineman in the class behind Georgia Bulldogs star Jalen Carter.

On the season, Murphy tallied 40 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and a forced fumble, but he called during the back half of the season and could stand to add a few more pass rush moves to his arsenal.
