10 potential Eagles NFL draft targets that stood out during the 2024 Senior Bowl

The NFL draft starts in Mobile, Alabama, and as the Eagles and 29 other teams start figuring out a plan to reach the Super Bowl, coaches, scouts, and GMs have descended upon the most storied all-star game going today.

The National Team defeated the American Team, 16-7, in the 2024 Reese’s Senior Bowl on Saturday at Hancock Whitney Stadium on the University of South Alabama campus.

The game capped off a week-long interview process, including three days of practices, for more than 100 of the 2024 NFL Draft’s top senior (and select underclassman) prospects.

With all eyes now on the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine, here are ten potential Eagles draft targets that stood out.

Cody Schrader, RB, Missouri

Schrader is a shorter back at 5-8 and 207 pounds, and although he didn’t break out as a rusher in the game, he was effective on check-downs and quick passes, with 54 yards receiving on five catches.

Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

Philadelphia has three free agent wide receivers and the former Georgia wide receiver showed that he can be the 2024 version of Puka Nacua.

Tykee Smith, DB, Georgia

The Georgia safety had a strong showing and broke up a deep pass to North Carolina WR Devontez Walker at the end of the first quarter, one of three pass breakups Smith made, along with a TFL.

Jarvis Brownlee, DB, Louisville

Brownlee Jr. also made an interception, capping a strong week for him.

Brownlee stepped in front of an errant Sam Hartman throw for an interception in the red zone, running it back 32 yards in the final minute of the first half.

Cedric Gray, LB, UNC

Gray tied for a game-high seven tackles and broke up two passes in the second half, nearly intercepting both of them.

Luke McCaffrey, WR, Rice

McCaffrey — the brother of 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey — had two nice catches, including a one-handed grab for 13 yards, a 15-yard catch, and a 5-yard run. He also added a 20-yard punt return, showing the versatility he can bring to an NFL team.

Evan Williams, DB, Oregon

The two best defensive plays in Saturday’s game were diving interceptions, and the former Oregon Ducks star safety nabbed the first one in the second quarter. QB Joe Milton III tried to hit Missouri running back Cody Schrader in the end zone for a touchdown pass before Williams saved the day.

Christian Haynes, OL, UCONN

At 6-foot-2 and 318 pounds, Haynes measured in with 33 7/8-inch arms and showed the ability to be dominant in 1-on-1 drills.

During the game, Haynes also played guard and center, and is an option for the Eagles if Jason Kelce retires.

Kentucky, LB, Trevin Wallace

Wallace was stout on Saturday, racking up six tackles, including three within a yard of the line of scrimmage.

Payton Wilson, LB, N.C. State

A sideline to sideline player who met with the Eagles at the Senior Bowl, Wilson is a huge off-ball linebacker (6-4, 234 pounds), but he displayed the ability to run and cover, too.

Malachi Corley, WR, Western Kentucky

A Deebo Samuel style run after catch type of athlete, Corley is built more like a running back at 5-foot-10 and 215 pounds. During the week, he showed off some impressive route running skills and could be a player to watch with Quez Watkins set to hit free agency.
