Best Eagles Draft Fits: A Big, Bruising Back in the 5th?

With rounds 4-7 coming up, here are some interesting players who may be available when the Eagles are on the clock:

Fifth Round

Jordan Howard, RB, Indiana
A big, bruising back who can carry the load and punish defenses.

Hassan Ridgeway, DT, Texas
An athletic interior lineman who can get into the backfield and cause problems.

Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
Tall (6-2/209) with speed to take the top off a defense, Peake just needs to work on catching the ball more consistently.

Miles Killebrew, S, Southern Utah
A big (6-2/217) safety who can step into the box and really lay the lumber. Special team standout waiting to happen.

Matt Ioannidis, DT, Temple
Relentless player who can hold his ground at the point of attack.

How History Is Repeating Itself for Former Eagles Coach Doug Pederson

Harlan Miller, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
A fiesty corner who doesn't back down from anyone. Some NFL coaching could help Miller become a productive starter down the road.

Daniel Braverman, WR, Western Michigan
A classic slot receiver, Braverman has the quickness and hands to excel underneath.

Sixth Round

Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU
Has all the physical attributes you want in an OT, but sloppy technique will need to be fixed.

Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
A bit raw as a passer, Prescott is a super athlete with strong leadership potential.

Devon Cajuste, WR/TE, Stanford
A big receiver who could possibly play an H-back role in the NFL.

Seventh Round

Tavon Young, CB, Temple
Really good man cover corner who just lacks the size. Could be a tremendous nickel corner.

Joshua Perry, LB, Ohio State
A big, classic middle linebacker who will excel against the run and struggle if asked to drop into coverage.

Jakeem Grant, WR, Texas Tech
A tiny receiver (5-6/165) with blazing speed, Grant would come in to return kicks.

Jalen Mills, S, LSU
Mills isn't as physical as you'd like a safety to be but he can cover and play centerfield.
