  • Weight: 196 LBS
  • Position: CB
  • College: Penn State & Texas Tech University
  • Class: Senior

McPhearson was the best available for Day 3 on some boards but ranked just 180 overall according to The Draft Network. Zech started his college career at Penn State before transferring to Texas Tech for his final two seasons. He can play on the outside and inside which brings a versatility the Eagles have seemed to covet over the years. According to Jordan Reid of the The Draft Network:

Zech McPhearson originally started his career at Penn State (2017 and 2018), where he would play during his first two seasons. McPhearson would then transfer to Texas Tech, playing his final two seasons. Primarily a zone coverage corner in the Red Raiders’ scheme, McPhearson showed glimpses of possibly being a scheme-versatile option as he was afforded the flexibility of being utilized as the team’s primary slot defender. A developmental option at the position, he provides scheme versatility, ball skills, and upside as down-the-line depth.

The Eagles next pick is Round 5 No. 150 overall. Click here for continual draft coverage throughout the day and make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel as well.
