ITB: Which Day 2, Day 3 Prospects Fit Eagles?


The Philadelphia Eagles can take advantage of hidden gems in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft to fill out their roster.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher identified later-round prospects who could be of interest to the team.

Roger Rosengarten

Geoff Mosher: “We talk a lot about Troy Fautanu who played left tackle at Washington. On the other side of him at right tackle is Roger Rosengarten. He ran a 4.92 at 6’5, 308. We know when an offensive lineman runs a fast 40, it gets the Eagles attention.”

Adam Caplan: “It looks like late third round is where he is supposed to go. I certainly could see him competing for a starting job at some point.”

Johnny Wilson

Mosher: “A guy that visited them that is really fascinating because of the way the Eagles seem to be stockpiling guys that are ‘tweener’ wide receivers/tight ends is Johnny Wilson from Florida State.”

Caplan: “An NFL receivers coach told me he would absolutely not try him at tight end right now, he would wait. He said you can’t teach size and he would want the guy to come in as a receiver. Some teams we talked to don’t think he runs well enough to play receiver going forward…He should be fourth or fifth round, could sneak in the third.”

Marshawn Kneeland

Mosher: “He had a combine interview with them. He was supposed to have a 30 visit, but that got canceled. This is a guy who is considered a very good athlete and has a lot of upside.”

Caplan: “There are a number of reasons for canceled visits. Sometimes the player stayed a second day with a club, weather related, or illness. I don’t read anything to it.”

Edgerrin Cooper

Mosher: “If this guy who has taken a visit to them is there at 50, from his athletic testing and all of the measurables, he screams Eagles linebacker from the analytics alone.”

Caplan: “He is a stud, going to go in the second. Will Howie (Roseman) pull the trigger on an off-the-ball linebacker in the second round? He has a very small history of doing it.”
