On the clock: NFL Draft Pick No. 30: Philadelphia Eagles – Jack Campbell, Linebacker, Iowa
The Philadelphia Eagles have done a great job retaining as many free agents as possible, but there are still a few holes in their defense that need filling. Jack Campbell could start from Week 1, and he’s the best off-ball linebacker in the draft.
Campbell had 125 tackles, one pass defended, one sack, one forced fumble and two interceptions including a phenomenal interception of C.J. Stroud against Ohio State. He looks like a prototypical three-down linebacker in the NFL.
Campbell is tall for a linebacker at 6-foot-5 and 246 pounds, but he makes sure he gets low and doesn’t allow leverage underneath him. His technique is excellent, and teams should feel safe about him being a plug-and-play prospect.
A smart player who could be a defensive captain in the NFL, he would make an excellent choice for an Eagles team that just needs an extra push to win the Super Bowl.
