Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss (6'5, 240): Ole Miss vs. (11) Indiana, Outback Bowl, 12:30 p.m.
Yeboah is from Allentown, PA, and he was a graduate transfer from Temple who broke out in his final collegiate season at Ole Miss. His numbers:
2020 (Ole Miss)
To note, those 2020 stats were in just 7 games.
Yeboah played a more traditional tight end role in college. In the pros he'll be more of a "move TE," AKA an F, and could pair nicely with Dallas Goedert. A look:
It feels a lot like Zach Ertz's tenure with the team will soon be coming to a close. If so, the Eagles will need to add depth at TE, and a Day 3 prospect would make sense.
Greg Eisworth, S, Iowa State (6'0, 198): (25) Oregon vs. (10) Iowa State, PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, 4:00 p.m.
Eisworth is the leader of the cyclones defense. He is a very good run defender, who knows when to make the sure tackle in open space, and when to deliver a pop. While not the most athletic safety in this class, he has good pass breakup numbers (19 PBUs in 3 seasons), and he knows where he is supposed to be.
I like Eisworth's initial fit in the Eagles defense in sub-packages, perhaps as a dime linebacker, who can eventually grow into a starting strong safety role. Day 3 guy.
Michael Carter, RB, North Carolina (5'8, 199): (5) Texas A&M vs. (13) North Carolina, Capital One Orange Bowl, 8:00 p.m.
Carter and Javonte Williams (previously profiled here) form the best RB tandem in the country. It was fun watching Carter and Williams absolutely wreck the Miami defense earlier this season when Carter ran for 308 yards, and Williams ran for 236.
Here was Carter's day:
Carter has been involved in the UNC offense since he was a freshman, and he put up huge numbers as a senior:
Carter was also a productive receiver out of the backfield, as he had 82 career catches for 656 yards and 6 TDs. He also returned kicks, though he didn't have any return TDs.
Despite being a part of UNC's offense for four years, he doesn't have a ton of mileage on him, as he has fewer than 600 touches over his four-year college career.
Basically, Carter is a souped up Boston Scott. If you're of the mindset that the Eagles already have a Boston Scott on the roster at an extremely cheap cost and you're fine with what he gives you, then you wouldn't have interest in Carter. If you think Carter can make a bigger impact in the way the Eagles use Scott and are willing to expand that role, then Cater makes sense early on Day 3. It'll be interesting to see how the league values him.
Dyami Brown, WR, North Carolina (6'1, 185): (5) Texas A&M vs. (13) North Carolina, Capital One Orange Bowl, 8:00 p.m.
Brown has averaged at least 20 yards per catch on at least 50 receptions each of the last two years:
OK, so he actually averaged 19.98 YPC in 2020, but shut up. As you might guess, he's an outside speed guy. I love the highlight at the 3:00 mark below. He knows he had one-on-one coverage, and he calls for the ball pre-snap, then dusts 2020 first-round pick A.J. Terrell.
I believe most view Brown as a Day 3 guy. If he's there on Day 3, he's absolutely worth a swing. I certainly like him a whole lot more than I liked John Hightower or Quez Watkins, for example. But the bet here is that he'll be a riser, and could sneak into Day 2.
