Eagles get O-Line Depth with Jack Driscoll, Make Trade in Round 4
In the fourth round the Eagles added depth to their offensive line with pick No. 145, taking Auburn tackle Jack Driscoll.
Driscoll is a versatile lineman, who can play up-and-down the line. He made 20 starts at left guard, left tackle, and right tackle while at UMass before transferring and finishing his career as Auburn's right tackle.
"Maybe a guard, he is a running blocker, he can compete at guard, maybe a backup tackle," said Mel Kiper Jr. during ESPN's NFL Draft coverage. " He will be ahead of the game at a technique stand-point. He will add some depth to their offensive line at both guard and tackle."
The Eagles lost Halapoulivaati Vaitai in free agency this offseason to the Detroit Lions, so they needed to find someone to replace his ability to play multiple positions - Driscoll fits the bill.
While he played right tackle at Auburn, he projects to be more of a guard at the NFL level, but could bump out in a reserve role.
The Eagles also had pick 146, but sent it to Dallas for pick No. 164 and a 2021 fifth-round pick.
