Welcome to the latest edition of the Bleeding Green Nation mailbag! Every week I’ll be taking some of your Philadelphia Eagles questions and answering them here in this post. As always, thanks to everyone who sent me a question on Twitter (@BrandonGowton).
@WriteWhatuLove asks: Who is an underrated prospect that could make the roster and contribute?
I don’t know if you’d consider him a prospect at age 26, but Aaron Grymes came to mind when I thought about this question. He flashed in offseason practices last year and he picked up right where he left off. Considering how the Eagles gave him some looks at first team nickel corner, he could be a nice contributor for the team this year. The feeling here is he might even be able to unseat Ron Brooks. Then again, Brooks is viewed favorably by defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.
Another name that stood out to me when looking at the Eagles’ roster is Kamu Grugier-Hill. The 23-year-old quietly finished third in special teams tackles last season. Grugier-Hill could potentially be the WILL linebacker if/when Philadelphia trades Mychal Kendricks.
Indeed, Agholor was a pleasant surprise this spring. But can he keep it up? Let’s put it this way: I’ll believe it when I see it.
Saying Agholor has “struggled” to this point in his career would be a massive understatement. He’s literally been one of the worst wide receivers in the NFL over the past two seasons. He’s arguably been THE worst wide receiver in the league.
