With Ronnie Brown heading out the door, the Eagles could very well be in the market for an extra back this offseason. LeSean McCoy is obviously the top guy, but they'll likely look for someone other than just Dion Lewis to spell him. Last season, Brown was supposed to be the bigger back compliment to Shady. Obviously that didn't work out, but it doesn't necessarily mean the team won't be looking for a guy with a little more size as the 3rd back.
Ganaway is the first big back on the list, measuring 5-11 and 241 pounds. He's a former Houston transfer coming off a breakout senior season, and Ganaway's blend of size, burst and lateral mobility jumps out at times on film. He's capable of running over defenders or making them miss when he gets into space, but his ability to contribute on third down is a concern.
Still, the Philadelphia Eagles could find a spot for a back like Ganaway. With Ronnie Brown set to become a free agent the Eagles could plug Ganaway in as their more powerful back behind LeSean McCoy, and also use him to spell McCoy when needed.
Last season at Baylor he rushed for 1.547 yards and 21 TDs.
