NFL Draft 2022: Eagles Top Picks on Day Three of the Draft

The Eagles came to the 2022 NFL Draft with a total of 10 picks but they wouldn’t do that many.

After a couple trades on day one, the Eagles are on their way out with just five trades and AJ Brown out of the draft.

The Eagles picked Jordan Davis, Cam Jurgens and Nakobi Dean for the first two days but two other options remained. One in the fifth (No. 154) and one in the seventh (No. 237).

Here are the 20 players left on Day 3 that might be of interest:

Tariq Wolin, CB, Utah: I’m amazed that Woolen 6-4, 205 lbs. is still available. Yes, he is rude and hasn’t faced much competition but he is obsessed with athletes with all the gadgets. A clear boom or bust but the upside is huge.

Kobe Bryant, CB, Cincinnati: Bryant, named after Kobe Bryant, played an opposite game in the first round on Sous Gardner and saw a lot of balls in his path. He had a good showing at the Senior Bowl and it would be nice for CB2 to pair up with Darius Slay.

Galen Armor Davis, CB, Alabama: He handled some injuries in college but Armor-Davis (6-0, 197) has the right tire and started 11 games at Crimson Tide at the SEC in 2021.

Damari Mathis, CB, Pittsburgh: Matisse missed the entire 2020 season but returned in 2021 to start all 13 matches. He’s a man/zone proper and the Eagles bumped into a corner of Pete a few years ago when they drafted the Avonte Maddox.

Tariq Castro Fields, CB, Penn State: Castro Fields was actually high school classmates with CB Zeke McPherson of Eagles, Virginia. Castro Fields (6-0, 197) started 12 games in 2021 with Nittany Lions. He also had a strong showing in the combine, scoring 4.38. He has some powerful third day tools.

Veron McKinley III, S., Oregon: At 5-10, 192 pounds, McKinley was leaner, but that didn’t stop him from making a really solid career in Oregon, where he was all-American. He had 11 career objections in college.

Dean Bilton, S., Iowa: A big year in 2021 with five interceptions and an All-Big Ten nod. Belton is 6 feet 205 pounds and runs 4.43 when combined, although this is not necessarily shown in games.

Thyssen-Anderson, S., Toledo: Anderson started 27 games in Toledo and was the team captain for two years. He can play multiple positions in high school and this variety is likely to be interesting to the Eagles.

Jesse Lucetta, Edge/LB, Penn State: Luketa put in a really great performance at the Senior Bowl. A bit of a tweener, he was planning on being the SAM linebacker for the Eagles and could be Haason Reddick’s backup.

Kingsley Ingbari, Edge, South Carolina: Little surprise Enagbare is still available. He had 4.5 sacks and 7 TFLs in 2021. At 6-3, 258, he has a proper tire to be a DE in the Eagles 4-3 game.

Michelle Clemons, Edge, Texas A&M: He’s much older, at 24, and comes with some injuries and baggage off the field. There are red flags. But he had 7 sacks in 2021 and showed flashes of a high level of passing ability.

Dominic Robinson, Edge, Miami (Ohio): Another older possibility is Robinson who is 23 years old. But it was previously a wide receiver and is still learning edge location and has shown great strides. The Eagles showed some interest in him at Senior Ball.

Damon Pierce, RB, Florida: Bruised 5-9, 218 pounds backward which would be a nice complement to Miles Sanders. He had 13 touchdowns in 2021 and averaged 5.7 yards per carry.

Hassan Haskins, Michigan: At 6-1, 228 pounds, the Haskins is a burden to take down and has entered the end zone 20 times in 2021. He doesn’t have pure speed but moves better than you’d expect to regain strength.

Charlie Kollar, TE, Iowa: The Eagles were in attendance at the Iowa Pro Day to get a closer look at Kollar, who has the upside as the narrow end of the double threat. He had 62 catches for 756 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2021.

Isaiah Leakley, TE, Coastal Carolina: At 6-4, 245 pounds, he’d likely fill in the tight F point in the Eagles attack. They can use it in many ways to win matches. He had a great season in 2021 with 59/912/12.

Chigoziem Okonkwo, TE, Maryland: After missing the entire 2020 season due to a medical issue, Okonkwo returned in 2021 to start 13 games. He had 52 passes for 447 yards and 5 touchdowns. Weighing in at 6-2 and 238 pounds, it doesn’t have a typical size and won’t be required to block rim dimples too often.

Justin Ross, WR, Clemson: If the Eagle wants to swing by late, the 6-3, 205-pound receiver offers value. He missed the entire year of 2020 after major spinal surgery but came back in 2021. If he can get back to his pre-injury levels, he’ll be robbed.

Obinna Eze, OT, TCU: The Eagles have had success with late TCU transfer workers before and Eze can follow along. He weighs 6-6 and 321 pounds and played all 12 games as a left-hander in the TCU last season after moving from Memphis. It could be a developmental swing treatment.

Matt Ariza, San Diego State: In a way, this would be the most exciting choice for the draft. Araiza is the best player in this category and he is incredible at that. The Eagles can use an upgrade on incumbent Arryn Siposs.
