It’s difficult to find a hole in the Philadelphia Eagles‘ list of projected starters.
Jalen Hurts continues his improvement as a dual-threat quarterback.
But even if they have practically everything they need, Eagles reporter Eliot Shorr-Parks makes one suggestion.
#Eagles should definitely claim Kenyan Drake. At the very least to get a look at him before final cuts

Shorr-Parks tweeted, “#Eagles should definitely claim Kenyan Drake. At the very least to get a look at him before final cuts.”
Drake started his career with the Miami Dolphins when he was selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
He played there six games into the 2019 season before he was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a conditional sixth-round pick.
After two seasons in Arizona, Drake signed a two-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders.
However, he was released by the squad last August 23.
A broken right ankle limited him to only 254 rushing yards and two touchdowns last season.
Drake Can Be A Special Teams Asset
Now in full health, Drake can help strengthen the Eagles’ run attack.
Unfortunately, the lot is crowded and he might find a way to contribute elsewhere.
He could be a dangerous return guy who will do better than Jalen Reagor.
Still, it’s up to the Eagles if they will heed Shorr-Parks’ suggestion.
If they do, it’s a high-reward, low-risk move.
