3. Jaylen Wright, Tennessee

The 5-foot-10, 210-pound running back should also be on the Eagles’ radar when the NFL Draft rolls around. 

Wright has good burst and acceleration, which was on display over the last two seasons at the University of Tennessee. Last season with the Vols, the 5-foot-10 running back recorded 1,013 rushing yards (career-high) and four touchdowns on 137 carries. Wright scored a career-high 10 rushing touchdowns in 2022.

The All-SEC second team running back isn’t much of a pass catcher out of the backfield, but he knows how to pick out the right blitzer in pass pro and make a play. Nonetheless, even though Wright has 30 receptions over his last three years. With his burst and acceleration, it would be exciting to see what Wright could do in open space in an Eagles’ offense with playmakers at WR and TE.

On FanDuel Sportsbook, the first running back to be drafted is expected to be Trey Benson of Florida State. (+200) Head over to FanDuel now if you want to get in on the action. Claim your sign-up bonus of $200 after your first winning wager.
