With Jordan Hicks leaving the Eagles this offseason to head to Arizona, the team now finds itself light at the linebacker position. They could decide to bring in a linebacker during this year's draft, and yesterday linebacker coach Ken Flajole was out west to see Utah's pro day in person to check out one of their linebackers.
Cody Barton | LB | 6’2 230lbs | Sr.
Barton was an honorable mention for the All-Pac-12 team in 2018. He led the team with 116 tackles (10.5 for loss) in his final season, while also sacking quarterbacks 4 times. He doesn't bring a lot of draft buzz, but he will be a late-round pick in this year's draft. If he keeps making tackle after tackle in training camp, he could find himself being a contributor during the regular season.
Current Projection: 5th Round
