2024 NFL Draft prospects that must be placed on the Eagles board now
Might nepotism factor into the strategy? If so, Jeremiah Trotter is one heck of an Eagles option.
Be honest. Don’t act like it’s just us. As soon as. you saw the name Jeremiah Trotter Jr. pop up at the prep and NCAA level, you know you had the same idea.
Nepotism as an isolated theory isn’t enough of a reason to draft someone. If it was the Eagles would have taken Patrick Surtain II, Asante Samuel Jr., or Joey Porter Jr.
This one makes a ton of sense though for a lot of reasons. If Nakobe Dean turns out to be what we hope, giving him Trot 2.0 as a partner in crime will drive a wedge in the Eagles’ revolving door at linebacker.
His teammate, Barrett Carter, is a nice consolation prize if, for whatever reason, Trotter isn’t an option.
Stating the Eagles don’t value running backs is a statement made in error. They absolutely love tailbacks… if they’re special, and Blake Corum most certainly is so.
We aren’t quite ready to call him the best in the 2024 class, he might be seen as such by the time we reach January. Write his name down along with TreVeyon Henderson from the rival Buckeyes. Those guys are going to make some money at football’s highest level.
