The Senior Bowl is in full swing, and earlier in the week Eagles scouts were seen interviewing six players. Yesterday scouts were just as busy, being seen with five players. Here's a look at the players the Eagles have on their radar down in Alabama.
South Team Meetings
Kingsley has been impressing scouts at the Senior Bowl alongside his teammate Daylon Mack - both of whom were interviewed by the Eagles. While Kingsley isnt the most exploseive DL off the line, he still plays visciously with his hands and can contort his body to get by blockers. Out of the two, I would rather see Mack in midnight green, but will be glad to see Keke as a day 3 pick as a consolation prize.
The Eagles were scouting college practices back in August, and we wroteabout the potential of Granderson, and why the Eagles would be interested in him. Five months later, it appears the Eagles do have some interest in him after all. Granderson has flashed the first two days of Senior Bowl practice, I'm sure leading to this meeting with the Eagles representatives. Granderson has proven that he is a bit more flexible than given credit, and has continued to show his ability to use his hands in pass rush situations. Granderson can continue to raise his draft stock, but as of now he remains an early day three guy.
North Team Meetings
Ballentine is a small school product from Washburn University (no relation to Jim Washburn). Preseason, Ballentine impressed scouts enough to earn the right to join players on NFL scouts watch lists for guys who can go in the first four rounds of the 2019 NFL draft. Ballentine recorded 50 tackles, 4 pass break ups and 3 INTs in 2019. Ballentine is also long and fast as he is said to run a 4.44 forty yard dash.
Wesley is another small school product that the Eagles are taking a better look under the hood. Wesley is a track star, who runs extremely well with the ball in his hands.
He would be a welcomed fit as a guy who can stretch the defense or take a jet sweep for 25+.
Omenihu is massive, but has the ability to jump off the line with great speed and continue to finish. Omenihu has some of the best speed at his position in the draft, and possesses elite hands to pop blockers and get to the ball carrier. Since he has a larger frame, Omenihu loses leverage. However, he easily makes up for it with his hands and speed.
