Carson Strong #12, Philadelphia Eagles (Photo by Peter G. Aiken/Getty Images)
When the most recent NFL Draft wrapped, across the board, Philadelphia Eagles fans were enjoying something they hadn’t felt in a while. They still haven’t come down from this mixture of hope and an adrenaline rush.
Something about landing Nakobe Dean in the third round when many would have taken him in the first sent shockwaves through this fan base and organization. Then, the hits kept coming with the undrafted free-agent rookie class.
If you need evidence of how much the Birds believe in Carson Strong, look no further than the amount of guaranteed money they gave him to sign on. A $320,000 bonus for a guy that didn’t hear his name called in seven rounds is a lot, but this guy might be worth it.
Injury questions aside, two things were obvious when Philly rolled the dice on another Carson. One, there was no way he was wearing the number 12 jersey. Second, this is someone that really could have gone in the mid-rounds. He’s that good.
Sorry Reid Sinnett! It isn’t looking good! There’s no way the Birds are cutting this guy, and there’s no way they’re stashing him on the practice squad so another team can swoop in (pun intended) and steal him. Keep an eye on him and the three guys that follow on this list.
