Here are two Eagles we haven't mentioned much but you'll need to keep your eye on.

Make a note of these three guys. Be sure to keep an eye on them through the summer.

Joseph Ngata, wide receiver

Yeah, this Joseph Ngata kid has something. We know we hyped Olamide Zaccheaus recently, and for good reason, but who would have thunk? Another Clemson kid is making a name for himself. Keep in mind the fact that Deon Cain is a Clemson product too, but as we always say, guys need too make the most of their opportunities. Ngata has done that.

We have a long way to go. There have only been three practices, all without pads, but Ngata could be a dark horse. Write his name down if you haven't already. He dropped what should have been a routine catch from the arm of Tanner McKee, but we won't complain. They're working out the kinks, and that could be a nice pair to watch in the preseason. Ngata did, however, Moss Kelee Ringo.

Quez Watkins, wide receiver

Rumors of Quez Watkins fading into the background have evaporated slightly. He enjoyed a nice day of work on Sunday. During 11-versus-11 reps he climbed the ladder and caught a high pass versus Zech McPhearson and snagged the aforementioned catch in traffic. Hurts has previously mentioned he has full confidence in Quez, and his actions are proving that.

We'll leave you with one more nugget. The preseason and a couple of joint practices could tell us a lot about one of our Georgia Bulldogs.
