In honor of National Signing Day, a day where the top high school football recruits around the country decide where they will be attending college, I thought it would be fun to take a look at where current Philadelphia Eagles players ranked coming out of high school. Scroll down and click a player's name for their Rivals.com recruit page. I couldn't find every player, especially some of the older ones. SB Nation has complete coverage of National Signing Day here.
Some things I found interesting:
• The Eagles added three five star players to the roster in 2015. Sanchez is probably the team's only five star recruit in danger of not returning to the team in 2016.
• The Eagles 2015 draft class added: two five star recruits (Agholor, Hicks) and two three star recruits (Rowe, Shepherd).
• The Eagles added a four star recruit in the middle of the 2015 season: Barrett Jones.
• Some players look a lot different now than they did coming out of high school. Check out Mark Sanchez's big hair, for example.
• Unrelated to this list, Doug Pederson's son signed with ULM today.
