Draft Buzz: Three Ball State prospects that could help the Philadelphia Eagles

Eagles Ball State Prospects 2021 NFL Draft
Justin Hall, Caleb Huntley and Antwan Davis of Ball State could all be a huge help to the Eagles roster. The Eagles have tons of holes right now, and will have to build through the draft.

It is no secret that things have not gone as planned this season for the Eagles. At a terrible 3-8-1 record the Philadelphia Eagles, are in need of a slew of changes on both sides of the ball. While you could take your pick as to where the Birds should get started I decided to start on the offensive side of the ball. This time doing it a bit different. I decided to look at a few prospects all from the same school, Ball Sate, and show how the talents they possess that could help, this coming draft season. With that said here are three offensive prospects, that could be of interest this draft season.

1) RB Caleb Huntley

Rumble young man, rumble. The Ball State product is a legit talent. Blessed with a solid base to help in short yardage. As well as true speed to help outrun defenders off the edge. Huntley is the ultimate underdog in the college world. Despite being one of the best running backs in the country. Some due to him playing in the MAC, others for the lack of media hype. I personally decided to go against that grain, and push the talented Huntley. Built solid at 5-10 225 LB. and a sneaky athletic ability, as well as a speed that helps him be a threat to score from anywhere. Adding Huntley to a backfield led by Miles Sanders would give the Eagles a true thunder to Sanders lighting. Watch the kid’s film, and you will see a guy that deserves more opportunities.

2) WR Justin Hall

Justin Hall is a legit problem for defenses. He can score from anywhere on the field. Either taking a handoff or catching a deep pass, Hall has the skill set to be a playmaker at the next level. Adding a talent like Hall to a receiver core that lacks true depth and talent, would be a huge get. Hall can also help on special teams, and be the difference between pretty good and a great WR core. Feed him the ball and watch how he can affect a game.

3) WR Antwan Davis

Anybody watching the Philadelphia Eagles will understand they are in need of real talent at the receiver position. Adding Antwan Davis as well as Justin Hall would be great starts. While Hall is the flashier player that can make a big play from anywhere. Davis serves as a possession WR, and a guy you can trust to help on third downs. He has true value as a run blocker and can separate at the top of routes. His ability to find the open area can be huge when working with QBs, that like to move around. Also, Davis is blessed with a great football IQ and true leadership quality.

I would love to hear your thoughts on these three prospects? Do you have anyone you would like me to take a look at?
