The Senior Bowl is one of the most important parts of a college football players draft process. This event gives NFL scouts and coaches a chance to evaluate the top college seniors in the country. The players get a chance to showcase their skills and make their draft stock rise.

At this years Senior Bowl, the Eagles have met with Missouri defensive lineman Darius Robinson. Robinson stands at 6’5″, 296LBS. He is coming off his senior season where he had 43 total tackles (29 solo), 8.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. He lead all Mizzou lineman in all of these stats. He was named to the 2023 First-Team All-SEC squad, and he won SEC player of the week twice this season. He ranks 25th all time amongst sacks at Missouri with a total of 12. He won the Reese’s Senior Bowl Co-defender of the Week Award this year at the Senior Bowl. All around, he seems like a really good player that could fit into the Eagles Defensive Line rotation.

The Eagles are going to have to start loading up again if they want to compete next season. It is clear that they still value the lineman position more than other positions, so it wouldn’t be surprising if that’s where they went in the early rounds of this years draft. It is still extremely early, so not everyone that they meet with is going to be playing in midnight green next season, but it is still interesting to see the process they’re taking after their collapse. Howie is going to have to get creative to come up with new ways to get ahead of the competition.

Even though Howie is going to have to mix it up, we should still remember that some things will never change. He has always shown how much he values lineman, and it is likely we will come away with one in the first three rounds this year.
