Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft is in the books but there is still so much action left! The Philadelphia Eagles have two picks on Day 2 — at No. 37 and No. 70 — as of now and will have plenty of exciting players to pick from. Here are their top 10 options heading into Friday.
Christian Barmore, Defensive Lineman, Alabama: Christian Barmore turned on his game in the second half of 2020. In a class of interior rushers that feels underwhelming, Barmore stands out with his pass rushing prowess.
Wyatt Davis, Guard, Ohio State: Wyatt Davis’ projection to the league feels easy. He is a physical, technically sound offensive lineman who will upgrade any line he steps onto.
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Linebacker, Notre Dame: Speed, tenacity and versatility. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah has all the tools to be an impact defender in the NFL. He will have a bit of a learning curve, but his upside as a defensive chess piece is undeniable.
Azeez Ojulari, Edge, Georgia: Another raw, but enticing pass rusher. Azeez Ojulari is a great project player for the right NFL coaching staff.
Tylan Wallace, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State: Tylan Wallace is an unsung star in a deep wide receiver class. Tylan Wallace is a deep threat with great ball skills. His best football is still ahead of him.
Asante Samuel Junior, Cornerback, FSU: Asante Samuel Junior is a scrappy, physical cornerback with good athleticism and ball skills. Teams might project him as a slot cornerback, but he will contribute early on for an NFL team.
Joseph Ossai, Edge, Texas: Joseph Ossai is a powerful, athletic defensive player who can disrupt the run and is still growing as a pass rusher. He is raw, with only a year playing with his hand in the dirt, but it’s hard not to love a guy with his power and motor.
Pat Freiermuth, Tight End, Penn State: In any other class, Pat Freiermuth would be the top tight end in the draft. His size, athleticism and ability to bully defenders with the ball in his hands will make him an offensive asset.
Rondale Moore, Wide Receiver, Purdue: Rondale Moore’s speed is as good as any player in this class. Moore is a great route runner with surprising physicality for a wide receiver of his stature. His ability to translate as a sub 5’8” receiver is a big question, but there is no doubt how special he is with the ball in his hands.
Trevon Moehrig, Safety, TCU: Trevon Moehrig is the top player in this safety class. He is a smart, athletic player with ball hawking ability. He can play down in the box or deep down the field. Moehrig is as solid a defender as there is in this class.
