The 2024 NFL Draft is certain to feature explosive talent that will upgrade the Philadelphia Eagles offense.

As a 17-year-old freshman in 2021, Braelon Allen became the fourth Wisconsin Badger to rush for 1,000 yards as a freshman in the school's history, and the first since Jonathan Taylor in 2017. In 24 career games, Allen has rushed 416 times for a total of 2,510 and 23 touchdowns and has earned himself two consensus second-team All-Big Ten honors in his two seasons as a Badger.

Standing at a six-foot-two and weighing 240 pounds, Allen can play with patience, power, and speed. His play style is reminiscent of former All-Pro Pittsburgh Steelers' running back Le'Veon Bell.

With three running backs currently set to become free agents after the 2023 season, Allen could be the long-term rusher the Eagles may need come next year's draft. Place his name in the back of your mind as well as a few others.

Johnny Wilson, WR, Florida State Seminoles

With a six-foot-seven, 235-pound frame, Florida State's Johnny Wilson has the potential to become an elite deep threat at the NFL level. Wilson is often able to use his large frame to create leverage to get open both quickly off the line of scrimmage and in jump-ball situations. Wilson began his collegiate career at Arizona State, where he only had 18 receptions for 243 yards and a touchdown in two seasons, but blossomed as a member of the Seminoles in 2022.

With 43 receptions for 897 yards and five touchdowns, Wilson earned second-team All-ACC honors in his first year in the conference. With an impressive average yards per reception of 20.9 yards in 2022, Wilson looks to build upon his solid 2022 campaign to solidify himself as one of the top wide receivers in the nation during the 2023 College Football Season.

If Wilson was placed in a receiving corps featuring A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert, quarterback Jalen Hurts would have loads of elite talent to distribute the ball to as he enters the first year of his $255 million contract. With Quez Watkins set to become a free agent after 2023, there is a good chance the Philadelphia Eagles once again looking to add a receiver on day one or two of the 2024 Draft.
