EDGEs Add Variety For '24 Draft


With a need at edge rusher, the Philadelphia Eagles will have plenty of options in the upcoming NFL draft.

Greg Cosell: “Dallas Turner has all of the traits that you look for when you are talking about guys who can come in become really good edge players. He is a stand-up guy in terms of a two-point stance, so he probably fits teams for the most part that play those five-man fronts like the Eagles do…You are dealing with a guy that has size, length, athleticism, explosiveness. He can rush the quarterback, probably needs a few more tools in his toolbox but a lot of college pass rushers do.”

Cosell: “If you are just talking tape, he would probably be my number one guy. He is 6’5, 260, you are talking about a guy who has a deep pass rush toolbox. Plus, he has really good movement. He has athleticsm, explosivness, advanced and refined hand usage, multiple moves in his arsenal.”

Cosell: “He is the most bendy and the most purely explosive of the pass rushers. His athleticsm is elite, he has unbelievable twitch and suddenness to his movement…You can’t just look at a stat sheet, you need context of games. When I watch the Ohio State game, on the first six quarterback dropbacks he ran around the right tackle like he wasn’t there. It is unbelievable the way he can bend.”

Cosell: “I think he is an intriguing guy. He has physical and athletic traits that are not exactly what you want them to be in terms of length, suddenness, and explosiveness, yet you see enough flashes of quickness and speed to power. He plays really hard, is an urgent player. Sometimes as a pass rusher, that can be something that works.”
