ESPN’s Kiper: Eagles Center Tyler Orlosky an Undrafted Free Agent to Watch

Kansas State v West Virginia
WVU center Tyler Orlosky was voted first-team all-conference as a senior

Generally, when a player is not among those chosen in the NFL Draft, he is a long-shot or afterthought to make the team.

Maybe the player lacks the prototypical size, speed or attributes to get noticed by NFL scouts, but a lot of times they might have the smarts and technical soundness to impress.

That might be the case with center Tyler Orlosky, who the Eagles have brought in from West Virginia University.

While you may not have heard of Orlosky, the center was a three year starter, and landed on ESPN Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr.’s list of 25 undrafted free agents to watch.

Orlosky (6-3, 298) started 42 games in his career at West Virginia. He was my third-ranked center.

During his WVU career, Orlosky earned first-team All-Big 12 honors as a senior and according to PFF College, Orlosky allowed just one career sack. On the down side, Orlosky is a little undersized, and not particularly athletic.

But as I wrote about when the Eagles signed Orlosky, I wouldn’t be surprised if not only made the team, but challenged for a starting spot.
