Eagles select Temple LB Shaun Bradley in 6th round
With the 196th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft the Philadelphia Eagles select Temple Linebacker Shaun Bradley.
The Eagles were desperately thin at linebacker heading into the draft. This move provides further depth after previous adding Davion Taylor in the 3rd round. Bradley is a native of Mt. Holly, NJ and should be an instant fan favorite.
Scouting Report via NFL.com
Undersized inside linebacker better-suited at the WILL spot in a 3-4, where he can be protected by size around him. He has enough speed and nose for the football to find work on this level, but it may not translate to success in the pros due to his lack of traits and plus speed. He’s not twitchy or athletic enough to get away without top-notch instincts and recognition. He’s just average in those areas. He loves football. The intangibles and special teams production could give him a shot.
