During the college football season each year, as long as you watch the games, we point out five players each week to keep an eye on the Eagles logical people for the following year’s draft.
Sean Tucker, RB, Syracuse (5’10, 210): Purdue at Syracuse, 12:00 p.m.
Tucker rushed for 1,496 yards and 12 TDs in 2021, breaking the record set in a single season at Syracuse. He added 20 receptions for 255 yards and a 2 TD. In two games so far in 2022, he has 212 rushing yards, 101 receiving yards, and 3 total TDs. he has track wallpaper And a very good initial acceleration, as you will see below.
For a quick comeback, I like that it’s also a “cut and go” style of a runner who can run through arm interventions and usually gets at least what he’s blocked for, sometimes more.
Eagles could be in the market for all the different styles to come up with next season, so maybe we’ll be putting together a variety of them.
Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State (6’2, 198): (22) Penn State at Auburn, 3:30 p.m.
Porter has an incredible height, who is said to have 35” arms to go along with his 6’2 tire. The 35-inch arms are good for offensive tackle. They are crazy for the corner. In addition to his God-given size, Porter is also a good athlete.
He’s also the son of Steelers great Joey Porter Sr., and he plays with a similar kind of passion and edge as his dad.
Porter only has one career interception (15 breakup passes), so ideally you’d like to see more production, but he’ll get attention from the first round because they don’t make a lot of corners with his size. If he can show some hawkish ability with the ball in 2022, he will be a lockout in the first round.
Tyler Van Dyke, QB, Miami (6’4, 224): (13) Miami at (24) Texas A&M, 9:00 p.m.
Let’s go ahead and post our Jalen Hurts disclaimer when we line up our quarterback:
Jalen Hurts has every chance to succeed as quarterback for the Eagles in 2022, and I think he will. Hurts will likely return as the starting team in 2023. But let’s be realistic. The Eagles will pay close attention to the 2023 quarterback class and if they think they can advance to the most important position in the sport, and have the ammunition and opportunity to do so, they will.
I’ll also add that the Eagles may be in the market for a backup quarterback, as Gardner Minshew will undoubtedly explore potential starting opportunities at free agency outside of next season. Boom, well, covered.
Van Dyke has the perfect size and big arm, with acceptable portability. Having knocked out Miami 2-4 in 2021, Van Dijk led them to a 5-1 finish. He averaged 366 yards and threw at least 300 yards in each of those games. In the season, he threw 25 TDs for 6 INTs. a look:
Van Dyck is a sophomore of the Redshirt program and has only started 11 careers. If he goes out after this season, he will have a lot less experience than the other quarterbacks in the draft.
Antonio Johnson, S., Texas A&M (6’3, 195): (13) Miami at (24) Texas A&M, 9:00 p.m.
Johnson is a versatile full-back who plays corners, safety and some full-backs. Line up throughout the defense as a kind of chess piece in the Texas A&M defense. He’s a physical attacker who can counter receptors with larger openings as well as narrow ends when swiping down visibly. It also has some value as a Blitzer of the Aperture.
Johnson is selected in the first round of the 2022 Daxton Hill Championship, which makes sense. From the Eagles’ perspective, he does many of the same things that Chauncey Gardner Johnson does.
Lou Headley, B., Miami (6’4, 220): (13) Miami at (24) Texas A&M, 9:00 p.m.
Headley was one of the semi-finalists for the 2021 Ray Guy Award in a year in which four players were drafted. He’s a big Australian, 6’4, 220 pounds who’s averaged over 45 yards per kick during his career. Want to watch punter highlights? Of course you do!
Headley (DOB 6/27/93, According to this site) would be 30 years old before he hits the ball in the NFL if he gets that opportunity, so teams might not be interested in using the draft pick on him. but… His son lives in Philadelphiawhich would make the Eagles an attractive landing spot if it wasn’t designed, and the Eagles decided to give Arryn Siposs a competition in 2023.
