Eagles Add Three More Picks in Round 6
The Eagles added three more picks in Round 6 during Saturday's NFL Draft.
First it was a local product, with Temple's Shaun Bradley, a 6-foot-1 and 235 pound linebacker. Bradley earned first-team all-county honors as a senior at Rancocas Valley HS (Mt. Holly, NJ) after rushing for 1,467 yards (188 carries) and 22 TDs
"He ran great at the combine, 4.51, in addition to speed he can make his presence felt against the run," said ESPN's Mel Kiper. "Probably have to be a special teamer early on."
Bradley recorded three straight seasons of at least 78 tackles for the Owls in 2019.
Overall during his collegiate career, he appeared in 50 career games as a four-year player at Temple, totaling 256 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, eight pass breakups, three interceptions, three forced fumbles, two sacks and one fumble recovery.
Also in Round 6 the team added another speed wide receiver, with Southern Mississippi's Quez Watkins.
The undersized speedster had 64 catches for 1,178 and six receiving touchdowns, averaging an eye-popping 18.6 yards per reception.
In 35 games, he was a highly productive receiver, recording 2,404 receiving yards on 159 receptions (second in program history respectively), and 17 TDs. He registered 10 career 100-yard receiving games, which ranks second in school history.
"This is an example of how deep this class is, most years he is a third or fourth round pick,"said NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah. " Very smooth, when he is in the open field, you are not going to catch him. Big-time speed has been the theme for the Philadelphia Eagles."
He ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash time at 4.35 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine, only first round pick Henry Ruggs (4.27 seconds) ran faster.
It's another speed addition after drafting Jalen Reagor on Friday night, trading for Marquise Goodwin on Saturday, and adding two deep threats so far on Day 3.
"When you put Goodwin, with Reagor and Watkins, that's an awful lot of speed they have added to their offense," said ESPN's Adam Schefter
Finally in Round 6, the Eagles added another Auburn offensive lineman, selecting Prince Tega Wanogho with the No. 210 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
"This is an impressive athlete on the football field, when you throw him up against some of the better competition, he has some of the better sits you'll see," said ESPN's Louis Riddick.
"Hand use and hand punch can be better and more consistent, but he does a nice job with the consistency that he pass protects. If you get this guy in the sixth round, your doing good work."
The 6-foot-5, 308-pound tackle has had some knee issues during his time at Auburn. and was considered one of the more athletic tackle prospects in this class.
"Some NFL scouts view Tega Wanogho as a possible top-50 pick in April," said The Athletic's Dane Brugler.
