As is always the case, the Alabama Crimson Tide and Washington Huskies have given us the opportunity to watch a few future NFL stars.
Well, the Georgia Bulldogs and Florida State Seminoles have been left out of this year's version of the College Football Playoff. As you might imagine, that has sparked a few discussions.
Fear not. The four teams that will be participating will give us all a chance to see future NFL stars showcase their talent. Might some of these guys land in Philly? You never know! Remember when we said there was no way Philly could land Jalen Carter AND Nolan Smith?
2. Kool-Aid McKinstry, cornerback, Alabama
Kool-Aid McKinstry will probably wind up being a top-15 draft choice, so it feels like the Eagles have no shot at landing him. He's seen by many as the top cornerback in the coming 2024 draft class.
Keep an eye on him. You be the judge. We won't lie though. He's special!
3. Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama
If you watched any of the Alabama Crimson Tide's games this season, you no doubt saw Number 15 running around. Laiatu Latu, Chop Robinson, and Jared Verse are the best in this class, but Turner is someone worth noting.
4. Bralen Trice, EDGE, Washington
If we were to place wagers, we'd expect that teams looking for EDGE help would have Bralen Trice on their draft boards. We're also going to assume that he's the next edge rusher off the board after Turner. Both figure to hear their names called in Round 1.
5. J.C. Latham, tackle, Alabama
Well, the last two times the Eagles drafted offensive linemen from Alabama (Landon Dickerson and Tyler Steen) things worked out well. If they decided to take a flier on J.C. Latham, they'd most certainly find gold there too.
All of these guys are worth Philly's attention. We're just getting warmed up. Let's keep the train rolling.
