The Philadelphia Eagles are back on the clock after a trade last year that landed them the Miami Dolphins first-round pick. At the start of the season, this pick looked as though it would be a top-ten pick, now the Dolphins have the playoffs in mind, something we’ll talk about soon.
Being back on the clock means the Eagles will need to take someone, that someone is the giant himself, Jordan Davis. The defensive lineman from Georgia comes in at 6-foot-6, 340-pounds being one of the biggest players in the draft.
While his numbers aren’t eye-popping with 28 tackles and two sacks on the season, Davis is a game wrecker and requires multiple blockers. It was to the point that Alabama would throw two blockers his way on run plays during the SEC title game.
With Fletcher Cox still in the fold for the Eagles, adding Davis next to him will help the front push for the Eagles who have to face Zeke Elliot, Tony Pollard, Antonio Gibson, and Saquon Barkley in the run game as well as Dak Prescott and the shockingly mobile Daniel Jones
The Eagles already locked in a replacement for Kelce and now they get a partner and successor for Cox as well.
