Toohill joins his former teammate Colby Parkinson in the NFL now after Parkinson was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks earlier in the day. He likely presents a project player at this time for the Eagles pass-rushing unit, but a solid addition nonetheless.
The Eagles have Derek Barnett, Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, Genard Avery and a few others in the rotation for spots on the edge, so Toohill will have his work cut out for him to land a spot. Still, the NFL dream has been realized and he’s headed to Philly.
Congrats, Casey, we’re rooting from you. All of Cardinal Nation is rooting for you!
