The wait is finally over! Casey Toohill is headed east to join the Philadelphia Eagles after they selected him with the 233rd pick of the 2020 NFL Draft on Day 3, Saturday.
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!
