With the 233rd pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select ... Stanford edge rusher Casey Toohill!
Toohill is a tweener who immediately projects as a deep reserve or a practice squad member. The Eagles have shown interest in those types with Genard Avery and Joe Ostman. Maybe Toohill can develop into a backup. He’s a good athlete.
Scouting report via NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:
Toohill’s a tricky projection based upon his issues stopping the run, but he has great flashes as a pass rusher. His body type may not be fully finished and additional play strength would be crucial considering his inability to anchor and shed against run blocks. His rush is much less effective against stronger tackles, but he’s a decent athlete and hints at rush skill that has room for development. He’s currently caught between a 3-4 OLB and 4-3 DE. If he can become bigger, stronger and more polished as a rusher, he might make sense as a backup edge with sub-package talent as a wide-9 technique.
