Big Four’s Extensive Carillion Work Sparks Calls For Action

Names to watch: RB Josh Adams, DT Bruce Hector, DE Joe Ostman

The Philadelphia Eagles could bolster the strong parts of their roster that helped lead them to a Super Bowl LII victory.

Running back Josh Adams hit the national spotlight behind Quenton Nelson and Mike McGlinchey blocking on the offensive line at Notre Dame last year. Both players came off the board in the top nine selections. Let's not take anything away from the Fighting Irish's lead tailback over the past two seasons. He averaged at least 5.9 yards per carry in all three years on campus.

Despite his impressive career yards-per-rush average, Adams doesn't have a second gear to reach the edge on the professional level. He's spotty at best as a receiver and comes up small in pass protection. The eye test likely hurts his draft stock.

The Notre Dame prospect looks like an early-down back, who can contribute to a committee as opposed to a workhorse asset, though, he fits well in an Eagles backfield that lost a downhill runner in LeGarrette Blount during free agency.

Bruce Hector and Joe Ostman could make the roster as an underrated pass-rushing tag team on the defensive line. The former finished a three-year college career as a wrecking ball on the inside with 18 sacks. The latter took down the quarterback 26 times in his time at Central Michigan.

The Eagles front seven would certainly improve with either Hector or Ostman in the rotation. If they both manage to earn roster spots, Philadelphia should lead the league in sacks.
