We round this one out with some guys who might tickle the Eagles fancy on Day 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft.

We round this out with six guys who are very entertaining to watch. Philly should be interested. Time will tell if any of these guys land in the City of Brotherly Love.

11. Chris Braswell, EDGE, Alabama

We're going to assume Chris Braswll winds up being a Day 2 draftee. There's really nothing to base that on other than a hunch, but it's a good one. It's also fair to state the team that takes him will have a nice hill of clay that they can shape into a diamond.

12. Xavier Worthy, wide receiver, Texas

Rememebr when we were talking about those great wide receivers the Longhorns had? Yeah... This is the other guy.

Xavier Worthy is a two-time First-Team All-Big 12 nod (2021, 2023) that earned Second-Team All-Big 12 honors in 2022.

13. J.J. McCarthy, quarterback, Michigan

J.J. McCarthy won't be a first-round draftee or anything. He probably won't be taken in the second either, but when your favorite team has its QB Factory, it's always good to monitor guys who could come off the board later in the selection process.

Keep an eye on Texas gunslinger Quinn Ewers as well. Both will be fun to watch.

14. Rod Moore, safety, Texas

Well, the Eagles probably won't take a safety early in the NFL Draft, even if they need one. That means we have to keep tabs on guys like Rod Moore.

A 2023 Third-Team All-Big Ten nod, he looks the part of an NFL defensive back with his six-foot, 198-pound frame.

15. Jonathon Brooks, running back, Texas

Last year, much of the Eagles contingent launched a Bijan Robinson campaign. One year later, the Longhorns are churning out another talented tailback. This one is Jonathon Brooks, a 2023 Second-Team All-Big 12 nod.

He's not as talented as Bijan Robinson, but you've probably noticed that Philly could use some help at tailback. Brooks can provide that.

16. Worth mentioning: T'Vondre Sweat, defensive lineman, Texas

Last year, the Eagles added a young Texas defensive tackle in the draft. If they look to employ that same draft strategy, T'Vondre Sweat is an even better prospect. In 2023, he was highly decorated as the Outland Trophy winner, a Unanimous All-American, and as the Big 12's Defensive Player of the Year.

The Eagles know his name if they don't know anyone else's on this list.
