NFL Draft: Eagles Assemble 2024 Undrafted Free Agent Class

NFL Draft: Eagles Assemble 2024 Undrafted Free Agent Class Sam Navarro, USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles got a head start on free agency once again this year.

With their final pick coming at 190 in the sixth round, the team had the whole final round of the draft to make calls and let players they had interest in that they’d be looking to sign them if they wound up going undrafted.

With the team showing their interest early, they hope it gets them some good fits and some of the top players left after the draft.

Howie Roseman reports they plan to only sign seven players in this year’s undrafted free agent class, far smaller than usual.

This page will be updated with undrafted free agent signings as they are announced.

RB – Kendall Milton – Georgia

Milton serves as a rotational back at Georgia for the past few seasons. He’s got an injury history that serves as a read flag having missed nine games over the past three seasons. His best year was 2023, where he posted 790 yards. He is a willing blocker and has that going for him but has not shown much in the way of receiving ability if Kellen Moore is looking for that.

DT – Gabe Hall – Baylor

Hall was a player with a draftable grade, with some having him go as high as the third or fourth round. Over the last two season, the 295lb DT appeared in 25 games (24 starts) and recorded not only 54 tackles (9 for loss) but 6.5 sacks. He is a player that has the athletic traits and build that’d make him a top pick in the draft if he had more consistency and better technique, meaning coaching and his willingness to accept it will determine his NFL fate.

WR – Praise Olatoke – Ohio State (Rookie Minicamp)

Originally from Nigeria and part of the international pathway program, Olatoke was on Ohio State’s track and field team. He’ll get a shot at minicamp to earn a spot in the larger training camp.

TE – McCallan Castles – Tennessee

Castles had his most success at UC Davis during the 2021 and 2022 seasons. Over those two years, he performed well as an in-line blocker and put up 734 yards receiving. Durability has not been a concern, but his transfer to Tennessee did not see him produce the same effectiveness at receiver or blocking in space. A three-sport athlete, the Eagles will hope his basketball and track background can convert him into a solid receiving option while they improve his blocking.

S – Andre’ Sam – LSU

Already 25, Sam spent seven years on college football rosters, with five years at McNeese State (where he walked on), one at Marshall and then last year at LSU. He appeared in 25 games and made 24 starts over the last two seasons with the larger programs. Last year, he put up 85 tackles with three interceptions and six defensed passes while playing against the toughest competition he faced. He is a physical player with ball skills, but will face an uphill battle in coverage with many receivers being larger than him. That said, he’s battled from a walk-on at McNeese State to a starter at LSU, so he seems to be up for challenges.

OL – Anim Dankwah – Howard

Dankwah is the kind of player that Jeff Stoutland like to work with every year. A player in the mold of dormer UDFA Sua Opeta who left in free agency this year, the Howard product is 6- 8″ and weighs over 350lbs. He has only played left tackle in college, so versatility will need to be a priority if he wants to earn a roster spot. Overall, he’s got the tools you can’t teach and needs help in the areas you can: enter Jeff Stoutland. Some scouts had him as a player to be drafted on day three.

LB – Jacob Roberts – Wake Forrest (Rookie Minicamp)

He hasn’t earned himself a contract yet, but he’ll be in rookie camp to try and earn one. He had an good 40 time among linebackers this year at 4.67 and was among the strongest with his bench press. He put up 83 tackles (10 for loss, second in tackles on the team) and six sacks with two forced fumbles and a defensed pass last year. He had played his prior seasons of college ball at North Carolina A&T, so 2023 was his first and only year at a power-five program. He was overall one of the top three players on the Wake Forrest defense, so he proved he could adapt to that level of competition and will need to do it again to secure a chance in Philadelphia.

OT – Gottlieb Ayedze – Maryland

Many mocks considered Ayedze to be a late-round pick. The Maryland native was a standout left tackle for Frostburg State for four years before he transferred to Maryland and earn an Honorable All-Big Ten selection. This is the kind of player that could thrive under Jeff Stoutland but would seem unlikely to figure into year one plans. He does have some brief experience at guard (one game), but he only started playing football in his senior year of high school so isn’t as far along as would normally be expected. He has the frame and raw talent to develop under Stoutland with some time, however.

OL – Laekin Vakalahi – Austrailia (Did not play College Football)
