Barcoo is a JUCU transfer who played on both sides of the ball at Grossmont College (CA). As a receiver there in 2017, he had 35 receptions for 767 yards (21.9 YPC) and 7 TDs.
Those ball skills have carried over to the D1 level, as he is second in the country with 8 INTs, to go along with 16 additional pass breakups.
A 6'1, Barcoo has good length, but he has a very slight frame. He is thought of as a willing tackler, but at 175 pounds, there will be concerns over whether his body can hold over of the course of a 16-game (and beyond) NFL season, much like Sidney Jones.
Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty (6'4, 220): Liberty vs. Georgia Southern, FBC Mortgage Cure Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 21, 2:30 p.m.
Gandy-Golden is third in the nation in receiving, with 74 catches for 1333 yards and 9 TDs. Like Omar Bayless, another small school wide receiver we profiled last week, Gandy-Golden is another bigger receiver with good hands who wins in contested catch situations, but does not have good speed.
Gandy-Golden isn't exactly a great fit for the Eagles' desperate need for more speed, but they seem to prioritize this type of player for some reason, so for the sake of being thorough...
James Morgan, QB, FIU (6'4, 213): FIU vs. Arkansas State, Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 21, 5:30 p.m.
Morgan fits the size profile the Eagles seem to prioritize, right or wrong (I think wrong, personally, but whatever). Still, he has a live arm, capable of making "all the throws" at the next level.
Here he is against UTSA this season. Again, note the arm strength:
Of course, the Eagles took a shot on Clayton Thorson in the fifth round a year ago, he stunk, and the team cut him. I believe they'll take another late-round flier on a quarterback again in 2020, and I believe that Morgan is a legitimate NFL prospect, unlike Thorson.
Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB, Appalachian State (6'2, 215): (20) Appalachian State vs. UAB, R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, Saturday, Dec. 21, 9:00 p.m.
Davis-Gaither is a smaller, athletic linebacker with good coverage skills, who looks a little more like a big safety than a linebacker. In 2018, he had 7 pass breakups, which was eighth in the nation among non defensive backs. He had 6 pass breakups in 2019, and an INT, which shows some consistency in that area.
He led App State in tackles in 2018, with 105, and is second on the team in 2019, with 92, while adding 4.5 sacks as a blitzer.
He reminds me a little of Kamu Grugier-Hill, in that he has the athleticism to contribute immediately as a core special teamer, but the Eagles would certainly want him to bulk up a bit before they use him in a prominent role in the regular defense.
Gabriel Davis, WR, UCF (6'3, 212): UCF vs. Marshall, Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl, Monday, Dec. 23, 2:30 p.m.
I've held off profiling Davis until now, because he's a junior, and I wasn't sure if he would declare for the 2020 NFL Draft. Now that he has, let's dive right in.
Davis has good size, good deep speed, and he can win 50-50 balls, but there are concerns about his acceleration, agility, and his ability to stop and go. In that sense, he reminds me a little of the Seahawks' DK Metcalf, who the Eagles passed on in favor of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in the 2019 NFL Draft. A look at Davis' highlights:
