The Philadelphia Eagles took a page out of the book of the late Al Davis in the 2020 NFL Draft and went for speed, speed, speed, and some more speed after that.
In the 2021 NFL Draft? We might be able to expect a lot of the same.
With these two picks, the Eagles manage to upgrade their secondary tremendously with two uniquely gifted and versatile athletes.
Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is listed as a linebacker, but he can play all over the place for the Notre Dame defense. Last year, he had 80 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, and 5.5 sacks.
Nasirildeen has nearly 200 tackles over the last two seasons, three interceptions, and three fumbles forced. He’s a playmaker on the back end of the defense.
These players would really upgrade the back end of the Eagles’ defense and add to their team speed even more.
