How did 10 potential Eagles draft picks do in major bowl games?

The Eagles have three first-round picks in the 2022 NFL draft and that allows for a ton of maneuverability, or Howie Roseman could just nab the three best players on the board.

Whether it be the national championship game or other bowl games, several prospects that could potentially land in Philadelphia made their case over the past two weeks.

Here’s how several top prospects did in bowl games.

1. Ahmad Gardner

Sauce had almost a 72.0 grade against Alabama in the CFB Semifinals.

Matched up against Jameson Williams at times, Gardner was only targeted 4 times on 34 coverage snaps, allowing three catches for just 14 yards. Gardner played in press coverage on 24 of his snaps, and his stock could quickly rise.

2. James Cook , RB,Georgia

The Eagles have a running back factory going and if the team doesn’t bring back Jordan Howard or re-sign Boston Scott, Dalvin Cook’s younger brother could be an option.

Cook has accepted an invitation to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl and finished the second matchup against Alabama with 77 yards on six carries.

Cook caught four passes for 112 yards and a score to crush Michigan.

The Eagles love molding quarterbacks and the Western Kentucky project could be the perfect choice if he slides to the mid or late rounds.

Zappe threw for 422 yards and six touchdowns in a 59-38 Boca Raton Bowl win against Appalachian State, giving him 5,967 yards and 62 touchdowns for the season.
