Who Are the Eagles Scouting? September 2019 Edition

Updated: Oct 31, 2019

We are already one month into the college football season. Some players have established themselves in front of NFL scouts and now have a solid shot at hearing their names called come April. With that in mind there have been quite a few Eagles scouts spotted at college football games across the country. Here's a look at where they were seen, and who they were looking at:

•September 2nd - Louisville vs. Notre Dame

Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Tommy Kraemer G/T | 6'6 319lbs

Kraemer was a highly regarded 5 star recruit that came into South Bend and has had success at both guard and tackle. Given the Eagles track record in valuing versatile lineman, Kraemer seems a likely candidate for the team's offensive line that will need to retool.

Current Projection: 1st Round

Asmar Bilal LB | 6'2 227lbs

Bilal is a monster in the run game; one of the reasons that Notre Dame's rush defense has rounded into a solid group as the short season has gone on. Bilal is fast and rangey, a solid mold for an NFL linebacker today.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

Louisville Cardinals

T.J McCoy C/G | 6’1 315lbs

McCoy, another versatile offensive lineman, could be a potential target later in the 2020 draft. A graduate transfer from Florida who can bring some later round value.

Current Projection: 2nd Round

Mekhi Becton OT | 6’7 355lbs

A big bodied tackle that can become another later round value pick. Becton and McCoy hold down the Cardinal offensive line that was able to run the ball against a ND defense.

Current Projection: 3rd Round

•September 7th - Ohio State vs. Cincinnati

Ohio State Buckeyes

Realistically, the Eagles could‘ve taken a look at the entire Ohio State team. The Buckeyes field one of the top 4-5 teams in the nation. Here are a couple that make the most sense for now.

Jeffrey Okudah CB | 6’1 201lbs

Stop reading if you’ve heard this before: an Ohio State Buckeye corner at the top of a draft board. If you’re still reading, Okudah is a top 3-4 corner expected to be drafted in 2020.

Current Projection: 2nd Round

Jordan Fuller S | 6’2 205lbs

Fuller leads the Buckeyes in tackles. Replacing the aging safety position will be a top priority this offseason for the Eagles. Starting off with Fuller is a good step.

Current Projection: Day 3rd Round

Cincinnati Bearcats

Darrick Forrest S | 6’0 200lbs

Forrest is the leader in tackles for the Bearcats through four games. Another potential safety prospect the Eagles can target later to provide value.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

•September 7th - Pittsburgh vs. Ohio

Pittsburgh Panthers

Maurice Ffrench WR | 5’11 200lbs

Ffrench is FAST. Two F’s fast. An explosive playmaker that can open an offense, and take the top off defenses.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

Kylan Johnson LB | 6’2 230lbs

Johnson is a transfer from Florida. The senior is third on the team with 20 tackles this season.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

•September 14th - Alabama vs South Carolina

Alabama Crimson Tide

Interesting fact — the Eagles do not have a single player rostered that went to school at Alabama. This is surprising given the fact that the Crimson Tide have won what seems like every National Championship since 2010. Here are a couple of players that make the most sense for the Eagles since it feels like most of their roster will be drafted.

Anfernee Jennings EDGE | 6’3 259lbs

Jennings fits what the Eagles already have at the end positions. Not an elite pass rusher, but great at setting the edge.

Current Projection: 1st Round

Raekwon Davis DT | 6’7 309lbs

Davis, a top three DT expected to be drafted would be an upgrade to what the Eagles currently have next to Fletcher Cox. Drafting Davis gives the team depth at DT, and a piece to build for the future.

Current Projection: 1st Round

Dylan Moses LB | 6’3 235

Moses might be the best LB prospect in the 2020 NFL draft. He would immediately come in and start for the Eagles, and possess a sky high ceiling.

Current Projection: 2nd Round

South Carolina Game Cocks

Javon Kinlaw 6’6 302lbs

Kinlaw is an intriguing prospect on the DL. Another top 5 DT, Kinlaw would be able to provide depth and a piece to move forward with.

Current Projection: 3rd Round

Ernest Jones 6’2 235lbs

Jones leads the Game Cocks in tackles, and is at a position of need for the Eagles. Jones has the size for a prototypical LB in the NFL.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

•September 21st - Missouri vs. South Carolina

Missouri Tigers

Kobie Whiteside DL 6’1 310lbs

Whiteside has been consistently knocked as too small. Seems to be a good candidate for a hungry Eagles d lineman looking to make a name for himself. Whiteside has 3 sacks through 5 games this year.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

Cale Garrett LB 6’3 230lbs

Garrett leads the Mizzou Tigers in tackles this year, while also recording one sack and an INT. Garrett has great size for an NFL LB.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

•September 21st - Ohio State vs. Miami (OH)

Miami (OH) Red Hawks

Myles Reid LB | 6’1 225lbs

Reid played in all 12 games last season, making six starts. He finished the year with 42 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, one sack and two fumble recoveries. He could be a decent project to work with at linebacker.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

Bart Baratti DB | 6’1 200lbs

Baratti has a bit of a Nate Gerry feel in that he is a college safety, but will likely convert into a linebacker or a box safety. Yet another possible project to take a shot on from a smaller school.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

•September 28th - Northwestern at Wisconsin

Northwestern Wildcats

Travis Whillock DB | 6’1 200lbs

A DB with good size, and tackling machine. Sounds like something the Eagles definitely need.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

Wisconsin Badgers

Chris Orr LB | 6’0 224lbs

Orr actually backed up a former Eagle TJ Edwards at Wisconsin. He has come along as a leader of the Badgers defense that is top ranked in CFB throughout 5 weeks.

Current Projection: Day Three Pick

Tyler Biadasz C | 6’3 307lbs

A true Wisconsinnite — Biadasz is a tough interior offensive lineman. Biadasz leads one of the best offensive lines in CFB.

Current Projection: 2nd Round
