With the 196th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select ... Temple linebacker Shaun Bradley!

Bradley is the second linebacker the Eagles have selected in this year’s draft. The team previously took Davion Taylor in the third round. Not unlike Taylor, Bradley is fast.

The Eagles are fairly thin at linebacker in the short-term and the long-term so taking another shot on one makes some sense. Bradley will have a chance to fight for a roster spot as a backup and special teams contributor.

Bradley is a local guy as a Mount Holly, New Jersey native.

Scouting report via’s Lance Zierlein:

Undersized inside linebacker better-suited at the WILL spot in a 3-4, where he can be protected by size around him. He has enough speed and nose for the football to find work on this level, but it may not translate to success in the pros due to his lack of traits and plus speed. He’s not twitchy or athletic enough to get away without top-notch instincts and recognition. He’s just average in those areas. He loves football. The intangibles and special teams production could give him a shot.
