2020 Senior Bowl practices have come to a close. Day one of practices saw the Eagles meet with 11 players, and day two a few more players were seen talking with Philadelphia scouts. On Thursday the Eagles brass met with the last of the players they wanted to keep an eye on, and hopefully got a good enough insight on who they wish to strongly consider. Here are the players the team met with on Thursday:
Perine runs with purpose; he can catch the ball out of the backfield, and punish defenders. Perine was the 2020 Orange Bowl MVP with 13 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns along with five catches for 43 yards and another score. Perine has always had a chip on his shoulder, from the college recruitment process through his career in Gainesville. Perine figures to be a better NFL back than NCAA back, and has the will to do so.
Current Projection: 4th-5th Round
A high motor guy with potential as a pass rusher. Wonnum has been pretty productive when hes on the field. In 2018, he had an injury that limited him to just five games. However, he came back in 2019 with 37 tackles, 9.5 for a loss and 4.5 sacks. Wonnum appears to be a late round developmental pass rusher, which the Eagles have tried to do on multiple occasions in recent years (Shareef Miller, Josh Sweat, Alex McCalister).
Current Projection: 5th-6th Round
As a tenured starter at Michigan, it isn't surprising that Bredeson has a high football IQ. He has the ability and athleticism to pull out and gear down for blocks. Bredeson has a strong anchor, but can get over extended at times. His hand usage will be something that needs to be fixed, but scouts do project him as a starter in the NFL.
Current Projection: 2nd-4th Round
