Here are a couple handfuls of prospects the Eagles should be monitoring that played at schools we don't discuss often.

Marshawn Kneeland (Western Michigan) & Javon Solomon (Troy), EDGE

Jonah Elliss, Bralen Trice, and Adisa Isaac are three edge rushers who figure to have their names called on day two of the NFL Draft. Don't be shocked if Marshawn Kneeland hears his name called in Round 2 or Round 3 as well.

He stands at six-foot-three and weighs 275 pounds. He stacked 57 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles during his final season at the NCAA level. Javon Solomon's 55 tackles, 16 sacks, and three forced fumbles were eye-popping. Keep an eye on both during workouts by the defensive linemen.

Tyrice Knight (UTEP) & Jontrey Hunter (Georgia State), linebackers

Here we are again. Every year, we ask ourselves what the Eagles' plan is at linebacker. Tyrice Knight and Jontrey Hunter are two solid under-the-radar options.

Tyrice Knight (six-foot, 235 pounds) exploded for 140 tackles during his final season at the NCAA level. He also racked up 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble and six passes defended. He's potentially a mid-round sleeper.

Jontrey Hunter (six-foot-two, 240 pounds) is a guy who can be added late on day three or as an undrafted rookie free agent once the selection meeting concludes. He's fresh off a Senior Bowl invitation and collected 95 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles during his final run with the Georgia State Panthers.
