As great as Alabama and Washington have been, the Texas Longhorns and Michigan Wolverines have been just as special.

There are a few pundits that believe the Texas Longhorns are occupying a College Football Playoff spot that should belong to UGA or FSU (and the only reason Texas is in the dance is because they beat Bama in that head-to-head meeting.

Say what you will. Texas is a string squad, and they are home to a few guys the Eagles need to be paying attention to as well.

6. Terrion Arnold, cornerback, Alabama

If the Eagles miss out on the Kool-Aid McKinstry sweepstakes, which they probably will, his teammate Terrion Arnold is another solid choice that they can add later in the selection meeting. He's six-foot and 196 pounds and could step in and contribute early.

7. Adonai Mitchell, wide receiver, Texas

The Longhorns have a pair of phenomenal wideouts. Both will earn their opportunity to play in the NFL somewhere. Both will probably be available in Round 2 on Day 2.

The first of which is Adonai Mitchell. He's six-foot-four and surprisingly smooth for someone who is as tall as he is.

8. Ja'Tavion Sanders, tight end Texas

The Eagles have done a good job of finding tight ends over the years (Chad Lewis, Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert). We even enjoyed watching L.J. Smith, though we know some of you probably didn't.

Goedert needs help though, and Ja'Tavion Sanders could provide some. He's a former five-star recruit who could work on his blocking, but with coaching, he could excel as a full-time NFL tight end.

9. Troy Fautanu, offensive tackle, Washington

The Eagles like offensive linemen, and this is a good one. Troy Fautanu is a tackle that doesn't neccesarily have NFL length, but he's super athletic. We ALL know of a certain OL coach who loves guys who are so.

10. Kris Jenkins, defensive interior, Michigan

At six-foot-three and 305 pounds, Kris Jenkins would give the Eagles another body to their defensive line rotation. It never seems to matter how many interior defenders the Birds have. They always seem to be in the market for adding more.

Watch Jenkins in the CFP. He's s better run defender than pass rusher, but he's certainly a future NFL star.
