The Eagles definitely have their eyes on offensive linemen for this year’s draft. They have kept close tabs on offensive linemen at big name schools like Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Boston College so far during these pre-draft Pro Days. But they also have an eye on some small school offensive line prospects, like at Alabama State and now at a tiny school called Elon University. The school’s football team has one massive offensive linemen who has entered the NFL draft, and we’ll take a closer look into who Oli Udoh is.
Also: Sounds like #Eagles had reps watching OT Oli Udoh at Elon’s Pro Day on Tuesday. Possible Day 3 target.

Oli Udoh | OT | 6’5, 323 lbs| Sr.
Udoh doesn’t have the agility or quickness the Eagles like at their offensive tackle positions, but his pure power is what will intrigue them into possibly taking a flyer on him. Udoh still needs a lot of work to be done before he can take the field and have confidence in him to perform well and not get his QB killed, so he would likely fall into the same category of Jordan Mailata where he is drafted and stashed away his rookie year.
Current Projection: 5th Round-7th Round
