The Senior Bowl and Super Bowl are both long gone. Apparently, they play the former BEFORE the latter now. Fear not if you're a football junkie. Our favorite game is going to offer us much to talk about before the Philadelphia Eagles begin playing football that counts again.

Next up is the NFL Scouting Combine. Then, we'll mix things up and talk about Pro Days, Top 30 visits, and, of course, the 2024 NFL Draft. Philly owns three picks in the first two rounds.

What they'll need to do with those picks will be discussed in great detail. Plenty of opinions will be offered. But, here's the good news. There are a lot of stellar prospects thatv can help them return to the NFL's elite tier.

These young guns won't be able to do it alone, but they'll be valued additions to begin the process.

Jared Verse, EDGE, Florida State Seminoles

The Eagles are seemingly solid along the defensive line's interior with Milton Williams, Jalen Carter, Jordan Davis, and Fletcher Cox. They need a ton of help at EDGE.

Brandon Graham, though valuable, is old. Josh Sweat doesn't need to be overworked. We don't know if Haason Reddick is staying or if Nolan Smith is ready. Jared Verse could be what the doctor ordered.

He's six-foot-four and tips the scales at 251 pounds. He's also the best edge rusher in this class not named Dallas Turner and/or Laiatu Latu. Keep an eye on him. Keep an eye on everyone else on this list as well.
