Eaglin, who was a three-star recruit coming out of high school, played in all 13 games for the Spartans in 2021 (mostly special teams), rushing for 33 yards on 13 carries.

From Detroit Free Press:

A former three-star prospect from Manvel, Texas, Eaglin committed to MSU five days before former coach Mark Dantonio resigned in February 2020. Later that month, Mel Tucker was hired as Dantonio’s replacement.

Since Eaglin has been on campus, Tucker has stockpiled running backs and has used the portal to acquire them. In 2021, he brought in Harold Joiner and Kenneth Walker III. Walker became the team’s breakout star, leading the Spartans to a 10-2 regular-season record before winning the Doak Walker Award.

NFL Draft Betting: How Early Will the Top Edge Rushers Be Drafted?

There’s a fairly well-accepted adage that “the most valuable football positions are quarterback and anyone who can get to the quarterback.” We all know that the passing game — both on offense and defense — has become the premier phase of NFL play, so it makes sense that prospects who affect it should demand attention in the NFL Draft. Especially in an NFL prospect cycle with no clear-cut, superstar-to-be quarterbacks, the edge-rushing talent is the show in town for 2022 draftniks.

Edge rusher is also a position you should be paying attention to if you want to bet the NFL Draft this year. FanDuel Sportsbook has player draft position props available for a number of NFL prospects: they give an overall draft slot number and you can bet on whether that prospect will be selected “over” (later in the draft) or “under” (earlier) that pick.

All four edge rushers with draft slot props have lines suggesting they’ll be top-10 selections. Will the top picks be dominated by defensive ends, or will any of these elite edge players slip down the board in the 2022 NFL Draft?

Methodology

I use a combination of data sources, including mock drafts and my own draft pick model to help project players into draft slots. The mock draft data I use sources the “pulse of the people” via Grinding the Mocks and their Expected Draft Position (EDP), as well as an “expert consensus mock” of the nine most accurate mockers over the last five years, per The Huddle Report.
