And with their final pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles could select a… fullback?

Wait, seriously? A fullback!? This has got to be a mock draft, as Howie Roseman would never give Eagles fans the player they’ve been dreaming of since Jon Ritchie donned the number 48 from 2003-04.

There’s no way the Birds would add a fullback to their roster, let alone draft one with an actual draft pick, right?

Not so fast my friend.

Now granted, the Eagles have yet to give a fullback a roster spot over Doug Pederson’s three-season tenure with the team, but that doesn’t tell the full truth. The Eagles have used a lead blocker on occasion, but the role has typically fallen on the shoulders of a tight end like Trey Burton, an offensive lineman, or even Beau Allen for a bizarre tenure in 2016.

Alec Ingold could instantly take over that role and of so much more as a late Day 3 selection.

Logging snaps in 36 games over four seasons at Wisconsin, Ingold opened up holes for the likes of Melvin Gordon, Jonathan Taylor, and our very own Corey Clement, and made his fair share of plays both on and off the ball.

Oh yeah, and he has an absolute nose for the endzone.

Over four seasons, Ingold received 117 offensive touches, 103 rushing, and 14 receiving, but finished out his career with 21 touchdowns, good for an insane 18 percent touchdown-to-touch ratio.

But that’s not all Ingold brings to the table.

A high school wrestler, Ingold pulled double-duty at Wisconsin as a member of the school’s incredibly formidable wrestling squad, where he wrestled at 242 pounds.

I don’t know about you, but that just screams ‘special teams ace’ to me.

Though he doesn’t really have expansive experience as a receiver, Ingold could easily replace Josh Perkins/Richard Rodgers as the Eagles’ third string tight end, and add an additional blocking element that the team hasn’t had since Brent Celek hung up his cleats as a Super Bowl champion.
