7 linebackers for the Eagles to watch at 2023 Senior Bowl


The NFL draft starts in Mobile, and even with the Eagles preparing to face the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII, all eyes this week will be on Alabama, for the 2023 Reese's Senior Bowl.

Philadelphia has Haason Reddick under contract for two more years, but the other two starters, T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White are set to become unrestricted free agents.

The Eagles do have rookie Nakobe Dean, rookie Kyron Johnson, and Patrick Johnson under contract but could look to add more depth.

With kickoff from Mobile quickly approaching, here are seven linebackers to watch at the Senior Bowl on Saturday.

Henley arrived in Mobile looking to show that his talents could transition to playing tight coverage in open space and that he did.

A former wide receiver, Henley has the athleticism to be a three-down linebacker.

Senior linebacker Dee Winters is a player to watch. A talented linebacker, Winters has 7.5 sacks coming off the edge and 66 tackles this year. He's a player TCU moved around and relied on to make big plays.

In the College Football semifinal, Winter had the best game of his career, showing off his speed against Michigan with three tackles for loss and a 29-yard pick-six.

Leota transferred to Auburn in 2020 from Northwestern and he had an immediate impact on the field. Leota was second on the team in 2021 in both tackles for loss and sacks, recording 10.0 TFLs and 7.0 sacks on the season.

In 2022 Leota was headed for a breakout season and in the first five games he had 18 total tackles, five tackles for loss, two sacks, and 18 quarterback pressures during those five games.

Leota has not played since the first half of the LSU game due to a pectoral injury.
