Five potential college graduates who might interest the Eagles in the 2023 NFL Draft

During the college football season each year, as long as you watch the games, we refer to five players each week to monitor who makes sense for the Eagles in the following year’s draft.

Zach Evans, RB, Ole Miss (6’0, 215): (7) Kentucky at (14) Ole Miss, 12:00 p.m.

Evans averaged over 7 yards per carry in a limited role in each of his first two seasons in the TCU before moving on to the Ole Miss.

Zach Evans Rec yards YPC TD
2020 54 415 7.7 4
2021 92 648 7.0 5

In four games so far at the Ole Miss, Evans has 59 games for 365 yards (6.2 YPC) and 4 TDs. I love his running style. He has some speed, he can break tackles, and as you’ll see below, there’s not a lot of nonsense or wasted movement in his approach. It’s a north-south runner that doesn’t leave a lot of meat on the bones, but can also make guys miss short spots while still moving the court.

On the downside, Evans didn’t contribute much to the scrolling game, and he has 4 fumbles in over 200 times.

Battle of Jordan, S, Alabama (6’1, 206): (2) Alabama at (20) Arkansas, 3:30 p.m.

Battle is a safe and instinctive game in the gaming industry and has had three Pick-six games over its last two full seasons. In 2021, he had 85 interventions to align with three intelligences. For those of you who follow college football closely, he’s also the guy who kept Auburn running off the ground and out of bounds, stopping the clock and giving Bama’s attack a chance to win that game, which they eventually did. A look at the Battle in that game:

He has good range at the back end, he is good in the penalty area as a quick defender, he has good size, he can play on football. There are no obvious defects. Likely on 2 gi.

Bryce Barringer, B. M. State (6’3, 215): Michigan State in Maryland, 3:30 p.m.

Barringer is the highest-rated Mel Keeper in the 2023 NFL. He averaged 48.4 yards per kick in 2021, and he averaged 53.0 yards per kick so far in 2022. Want to see the highlights of the gambler? Of course you do!

Most important to the Baringer is that he wears goggles, which as you already know can improve kick performance by up to 38 percent.

Nolan Smith, Sam, GA (6’3, 235): (1) Georgia in Missouri, 7:30 p.m.

Smith was a highly-rated prospective who dropped out of high school (second in state, across rivals), Who has the SPARQ is best rated in its Recruitment category. (That means he’s a great athlete, in case you’re not familiar with SPARQ.)

The Eagles are loved by some of the configurable athletes in the draft, such as Jordan Davis, Milton Williams, Galen Regor, Devon Taylor, Jack Driscoll, Casey Tuhill, Andre Dillard, Avonte Maddox, Josh Sweet, etc.

Smith is not just an athlete. He’s also a physical defender who runs and likes to put the edge on so that his teammates can collect interventions.

Smith had an immediate role in defending Georgia as a true freshman, but his production left something to be desired. 2021 was his best year, with 53 tackles, 4.5 sacks, one international IQ and three forced tackles. Some highlights:

Smith will likely be a first-round pick in 2023, and with production ramping up in 2022, he could go up considerably. I love him as a SAM in Jonathan Gannon’s defense.

Miles Murphy, D.E., Clemson (6’5, 275): (10) NC State at (5) Clemson, 7:30 p.m.

At 6’5, 275, Murphy has the size of a prototype, and some strength to go along with it. He had 4 sacks as a freshman in 2020, 8 sacks in 2021, and he’s also playing a role in facing the race. a look:

Murphy has some inner and outer variety, and it would make sense for him to be an eventual replacement for Brandon Graham. Possible selection from the first round.
