Eyes On Edges

Birds Checking Out Pass-Rush Prospects


As the NFL Draft inches closer, the Eagles continue to check out college prospects.

Edge rushers is a position of priority for them every season, so it’s no surprise they’ve got their eyes on a few this week.

Per InsideTheBirds.com’s Andrew DiCecco, the Eagles are welcoming one edge prospect to the NovaCare Complex and sending a position coach out to see another:

Hunt, from Houston Christian, is 6-foot-4 and 252 pounds. He spent his first three seasons at Cornell – which is where Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland coached his first offensive line.

Hunt is considered a developmental prospect with really good athletic traits, something the Eagles value, especially for Day picks or rookie free agents.

DiCecco wrote about Hunt in February in a story about small-college prospects who fit the Eagles’ draft profile:

A small-school prospect still learning the subtleties and nuances of the position with a “tweener” build, Hunt has his work cut out for him, though his stint in Mobile more than deemed him worthy of Day 3 consideration on draft weekend.

As for the 6-foot-1, 248-pound Kamara, he is notable for being mocked to the Eagles twice (in two editions) of DiCecco’s mock draft for Inside The Birds.

Here is DiCecco’s description of the Colorado State product:

“The former Ram plays with good pad level, uses leverage to his advantage, and boasts a variety of pass-rush moves. Kamara’s hand usage is intentionally violent and his relentless motor constantly runs hot. Probably more of a situational rusher at the pro level but represents another developmental pass-rusher to nurture.”


As for the Eagles exploring other positions, despite the signing of veteran tight end C.J. Uzomah to a one-year deal, the team also recently checked out a small-school tight end prospect from Furman:

Pline (6-7, 250) is a tall, lengthy prospect who converted from basketball to football three years ago.

The Eagles lost backup tight end Jack Stoll – their “Y” tight end – to the Giants in free agency but re-signed Albert Okwuegbunam – a tight end they traded for last August in a deal with the Broncos – and also have Grant Calcaterra and Noah Togiai, along with starter Dallas Geodert and Uzomah.
