Jack Stoll, TE
Another player who I’ve already highlighted this offseason, here’s what I wrote about Stoll earlier this month:
"While Stoll doesn’t offer a whole lot in terms of upside, his overall competition this offseason won’t be the highest. The Philadelphia Eagles current tight end room is looking something like this: Zach Ertz Dallas Goedert Hakeem Butler (former WR Jason Croom Tyree Jackson (former QB) Caleb Wilson No offense, but the likes of Butler, Croom, Jackson, and Wilson probably wouldn’t be the toughest to beat out in training camp. Throw in the possibility of Ertz still being traded, and a pathway to the Eagles 53-man roster for Stoll is that much more clear. It’s also worth highlighting that Stoll has a bit of experience playing on special teams from his time at Nebraska, something that might give him a leg up over some of the other mentioned tight ends. If there’s one thing that NFL coaches love out of their back-end roster members, it’s the ability to play on special teams."
Seeing as the Eagles don’t have an established TE3 at the moment, Stoll is another player who could find his way onto the 53-man roster if he impresses during camp. His willingness to block and play special teams should give him the upper hand on some of the above mentioned veterans.
